Yeah, too long since I've measured distance to strut, 9.0 is probably where things top out for conservative offset. My rg63's are 18 x 9 Front , offset is +38, and that's probably no more than 3/8" to Konis. But I have no doubt about 18x9.5 et35 throwing rocks down the sides (not a ton, but if I can find them...) from street use. You can see they would just looking down the side of the car with them on. I don't have any issue with this as square track setup, marbles don't take off paint and if you end up in gravel ... all bets are off anyway. I'll take a look again at 18" offerings, but will be getting paint work done in the next year, not looking to do anything less conservative.

A higher offset 9.5" wheel up front would not allow proper clearance for a 265 tire and may result in hitting your suspension. Therefore, a spacer would be needed which would negative the higher offset.

We have had many customers run the 9.5" ET35 setup with street tires without issues of kicking up rocks, but a stickier track compound may grab debris a bit easier. If you would want to go with a less conservative setup, you could run our 18x9" ET30 wheels with 255/35-18 tires

We would recommend going with either a 19x8.5" ET35 square fitment, or an 19x8.5" ET35 and 19x9.5" ET43 staggered fitment.

It has been a while since our last update and we wanted to get in touch with everyone. Our 19" SM-10 & FL-5 project is still going strong. We are in the finalization stages of engineering and hope to launch these wheels in the upcoming months. Our sample wheels are set to arrive next month, and we are looking forward to giving you a real life representation of what these wheels will look like. Stay tuned as there are exciting updates coming soon
