My guess would lead me to believe somewhere between +36-45mm offset.

Thanks ahead of time for any corrections and guidance

Sounds about right 😎

Looking for the right offset for a set of 18X10s that allows as much tire as possible.
I ride pretty low as it stands right now on coilovers and rolled fenders.
Here is how she sits now, these are 19x8.5 & 19x9.5. (I do not kow the offset, i suck)

With some work depending on camber and ride height

Still looking through the posts currently but figure i'd post up and see if anyone comments.

18x9 28 offset

245/40/18

Going to be a daily driver and dropped to a 1-2 finger gap all around. Looking for a very good front fitment after about 1.5* of camber. Would like no rubbing lock to lock. Can roll the rears if needed. Prefer to keep the liners. Thank you

Went with 18x9.5 +30, getting lowered this week, shop feels 245/40 may be too much says 235/40 will work better, thoughts on rubber?

Do not go that narrow. 245/40 will fit with just a roll. I have 265/35 in similar specs but that requires some hammering and trimming.

Does this fit

Rotiform Wheels R112 BLQ BD -Black Matte 18x8.5 5x4.5 45 offset 72.6 hub or could I possibly go wider to maybe 9.5 all around?

I just went through this, 9.5 works pretty easy, roll fenders, +30 offset or go +38 to be on the safer side, I went +30 and am happy with the look, but do see how +38 fit a lot easier, people have pulled off +22 running camber with a roll, but too aggressive for me.

Does 235/50/18 fit on a stock rx8 wheels?

Car is not lowered. This is winter set that my friend wants to give me. He's moving away. Overall height is more than stock size. Will probably look jacked up. But since it's free.... would hate to have rubbing issues though.

Hey Guys,

I am new to the RX8 forums and did some searching before I decided to post. I couldnt find anything specific to my wheel size/offset combination, so I'm asking for a little help from yall.

Im looking at a couple of wheel options and am confused - need to know will it fit with no modification (i.e. rolling/pulling etc...)

18x9.5 +20mm F+R w/ 255/40/18
19x9 +25mm F / 19x10 +25mm R (need tire size recommendation)
19x9.5 +38mm F / 19x10.5 +32mm R (need tire size recommendation

Basically, I've been looking at different WORK/Rays wheels and am a little confused as different sites spec different offsets for RX8s for very similar types of wheels. I really would like a 19" wheel because I like how it fills out the wheel wells - so if you have any recommendations for 19" wheel size offsets for WORK or Rays wheels, maybe that will help me out more. I've ordered some D2 Coilovers to accompany the new set of wheels I'm looking at ordering.

Thanks in advance!

18x9.5 +20 is pretty aggressive, here is a really good write up on fitting 18x9.5 +22

https://www.rx8club.com/rx-8-multime...-233973/page7/

I posted my wheels a few post back on this thread 18X9.5 +30.

Pics for 19x9.5 +38 https://www.instagram.com/anth0ny_m/ this is an easy fitment could push out a bit more

Finally. Skinny wheels pushed way out is not aggressive. That's just being a poseur. Aggressive is really 10" or more width with fat tires.

With around +50 offset 18"x 10" with 285/30-18 pretty much bolts on without any mods. Maybe with a really fat 285 like a Hoosier race tire you might have to roll the wheel lip flange flat, but most street 285s are no problem.

Here's mine with 295/30-18 on 18 x 10.5+43 and rear wheel lip flattened
