Staggering Into Poorhouse...?

some one told me it should work if i get a 35 mm off set for the rear on the 19"8.5"
If you're talkin' different wheel and tire sizes front and rear I'm fairly sure you'll be 'staggered' all right...unless your car's a FWD ONLYor RWD ONLY you'll be 'staggered' by serious drivetrain problems. If I'm understanding you correctly, you're going for the traditional RWD performance look of bigger wheels and tires in the rear. Unfortunately, the Nissan 350Z and the Infiniti G35 used to model the wheels you're interested in are both RWD ONLY. I'm pretty sure that anything other than the same wheels/tire setup all the way around on an AWD car will cause major (read expensive) problems. At the v. least you'll need the diameter of ALL FOUR wheels and tires to be exactly the same.

same wheel sizes 19" but diffrent widths, with a 35mm off set the wheel gets pushed in more to make up the .50"-1.00" of width diffrence so 19 by 7.5 in from to a 19 by 8.5 in the rear with a 35 mm off set and a 40 mm offset for the front should work in theory

of course i could have all of it backwords !! LOL

i will mostly likely end up with 19+8.0 wheels with a 45-48 mm offset all the way around, i had 18+8.0 im my prevouse svx and my wrx has 18"8.0 wheels on it and much room to spare, the svx its pushing it,

Don't Forget...

UNSPRUNG WEIGHT. The bigger the wheel's diameter the heavier it's likely to be. That'll effect acceleration and ride.

Still awaiting a definitive response from one of the resident wizards, (Harv, where are you?) re: Staggered wheels on an AWD SVX.

I've never seen it done on an SVX or any other high performance AWD. Audi road raced their AWDs and I remember them having the same wheel/tire combo all around.

skyline and a few other AWD cars use staggered offset wheels on there AWD and of course the bigger the diameter the more it affects performance,

i always run my factory 16s with some meaty rubber at the track

I've really been researching wheels on here, but still don't know if this size will work.

Do you think that a 17x8 with a 40mm offset will work?

I found an offset calculator that shows that if the stock wheel is 7.5" wide with a 55mm offset, an 8" wide wheel with a 40mm offset would be pushed out by 21mm or .8".

So what do you guys think?

Those calculations are correct. Have you checked to see if you actually have that much clearance?

It looks like I have that much room. 8/10ths of an inch isn't much. But it's one of those things that you won't know till you get them on the car under load. I was just wondering if anyone has this setup already.

I have 18" Axis Se7ens with 255-50-18" Pirelli P-Zero Systems on my SVX and have never had any promlems, but I wouldnt go any bigger then 18". My tires are thin enough now, I couldnt imagine hitting a pot hole rollin on a set of 20s. I noticed a big drop in exceleration but could care less cuse they look so Damn good. They fill the wheel wells perfectly I think. I got comments all the time that my car is lowered, but its not.

At one time I was running 17x7.5"/48 mm rims with 225/45-17 tires, and there was about 8-10 mm of clearance between the tire sidewall and the inside of the fenderlip when I had the rear of the car loaded down with the tire inside the fender. Based on that measurement, going to a 17x8" with a 40 mm offset will likely rub on the inside of the rear fender lip unless you roll the fender or run a very narrow tire.

What about the rx-8 rims, those rims look sick on the cloud. Do they need any centering rings or spacers anything of the sort? Or thye just bolt up?


Ps: oops just found a thread. The wonderful search button does work: http://www.subaru-svx.net/forum/show...light=rx8+rims
