Is 20x10.5 too wide for the front?

Postby twostep361 » Wed Aug 05, 2015 8:42 pm

is 20x10.5 to wide for the front,well i know it is. but will it work? LOL
I found some wheels cheap 20x10.5
will a 36 offset work ? tires was thinking 255/40/20 will a little stretch tire height is 28 with the stretch it should be a tad shorter. or a 275 35 20
was leaning towards the 255 because its not as wide,hoping it helps with the tracking.

or could i use my stock 245 40 20 or will it to stretched?

This may help or may not. I don't think it was a tire issue but I'm not sure.

I can't say for sure if 20x10.5 +36 will fit but it MAY. I had 20x10 +35 and it was close, maybe a centimeter between the rim and the suspension. 255/40 20 will definitely fit that size wheel, but if the car is AWD you want to make sure the rear is either the same size or a 285/35 or 295/35, they are the ideal stagger sizes for that 255/40.

If that's the only issue I'd say buy them, if a spacer is needed it will be very small but the 10.5 will fill the wheel well very nicely.

Just get the +36 10.5s, it won't be that bad. Plus for the price you can't go wrong. There's only one way to find out if they fit...

Bronze on white looks awesome. "Too tuner" would really depend on the wheel style more then the color in this case IMO. That wheel you picked looks great..

I would be happy to photoshop them onto a white M if you want. The Q50 they have on that site is pretty close too.

Yea could you photo shop but with rear wheels all the way around ?
I want the concave of the 10.5

I've seen some q50's with 10.5 all the way around on youtube,if they can do it,i don't see why not on a M.

gonna make some call tomorrow to niche and see what they recommend

thanks

i just called up concept one wheels and they said a 10.5 will fit all the way around with a 15-25 offset.
i was looking on myg37.com and there dude on there with 20x11 running a +11 offset squared crap. On a M37 dropped pretty low

I was told that 20x10.5 +25 all around would require alot of work in the front to get it to fit. I am sure 20x10.5 +45 all around could work as long as you don't have Akebono calipers. I pm'ed you earlier to see if you could confirm that the 20x10.5 +45 would work in the front.

I didn't get a pm,and i do have the Akebono calipers crap where i live were they have no idea or have product in stock to test fit.

well now i found some str racing 607 titanium 20x9 35et and 20x10.5 40et 850shipped on fleabay.
but searched and says if you Akebono calipers they won't clear. stuck again
but will be running spacers 20mm front and 5mm rear so on paper it should work.

which puts me at 15et upfront and 35et rear


want to use my stock 245 40 20s is the 245 to small for the 10.5? will it be big stretch?
iam thinking with 40 series its not gonna look that bad

twostep361 - I am unable to respond via PM due to lack of activity on this forum. HA.

I'm running a square setup, 22x10 +38. The fronts clear the Akebono's, and the wheel sits flush to the fender on a Eibach drop. I did place a 5MM spacer on the rear, and all wheels are wrapped with 265/30/22 tires.
It's a pretty conservative fitment, with minimal modification, or any clearance issues. The 265/30/22 tires are also still below the 3% diameter variance of the stock sport wheels/tires. Although, I will probably run 285/30/22 tires, the next time around. (Too much lip/rim exposure for me, and the tires do not have a rim protecting sidewall)

Should you run a staggered fitment, yes. I would, if I didn't have such a far work commute everyday. Replacing tires every year was getting old. (Been on some type of coilover, and aggressive fitment on my cars since '95!)

I did order the new Tanabe Sustec Pro Comfort-R coilovers, and hopefully will get installed this weekend. I can post fitment and clearance pics for you.

Not sure if this helps you in any way.

oh good news ,i want the 10" wide for the deeper concave look. Plus i get to rotate incase my camber is bad and can't adjust. I don't know yet haven't had a alignment.
Yes some pics with coilovers would help me very much. please get a fender to ground measurements.
also you think 285/30/22 will clear the front?

A big thanks brother.

the rolling diameter difference comes into play between the front and rear wheel/setup setup and not between your aftermarket vs stock wheel configuration.

twostep - A 245/40 on a 10.5 is pushing it, why not match a pair of 275/35 for the rear?

For the AWD system and ABS this may be true, but the speedometer will still be inaccurate.

20x10.5 +45 with 275/35 R20 - they fit but just barely.

Glad to see they worked for you, I had to sell mine. The AWD models must have different knuckles in them, otherwise the V8 knuckles are different.

For the record those are my rear wheels mounted on the front to check for clearance by CRV_33's request.

if those barely fit go with a lower offset if you "want" more clearance. how close was it to the fender?

I did not lower the car to see. It was up in the air while I adjusted the ride height so I threw the rear wheel on the front to check clearance for CRV_33.

20x10.5 rear on 275/40/20
On my 2011 infiniti m37x awd

Any ideas on lower stance

It's generally not a good idea to go with a staggered fitment on AWD vehicles. If you must, you have to make sure the rolling diameter is the same between the back and front.

Using this calculator https://www.1010tires.com/Tools/Tire-Size-Calculator you would use a 275/35/20 to be equal to stock size. You can use it to figure out the equivalent to 255's if that's what you want to do. Is there a reason why you want to go 255 in front?
