I'm thinking about getting some new wheels and want to get some input on the size offset I'm thinking about.

Size: 20x9.5 +24 (t-disk) and 20.10.5 +23 (o-disk).

I know it will take a lil modding the rear and maybe some rolling. Will this clear the front brakes? Thanks

Hmmmm....these are for work wheels right? Care to refresh me what are the different disks they represent?

So far u can clear the rear with the lowest disk(im @ SL disk by SSR) u can use but then again im @ a higher offset @ +43 which needs about 5mm more to get a perfect fitment without any fender work! For the fronts im @ +37 in hyper disk(which is the highest disk used by ssr) but I still have about 15mm of space left but not really sure till i fit the spacers and roll my fenders!

I'll be updating my thread about that maybe tom if me and my friend can do the fender rolling and fitment tom afternoon!

gbert, I'm curious about how all this works. If you could take some good pictures of before and after and compare when you roll the fenders, that could be great. TIA.

Hmmm...its basically the same for every fender though! Nothing really special for the Q50! Only thing I do appreciate is that rear ones are already flat so u only need to pull if u really need that space or leave it to camber adjustment! for the front u basically flatten the inner part of the fender where your fender liner is attached to and use heat and a roller to flatten it out! They aslo use some kind of tongs with flattened edges to pull and flatten things further after heating the fender! Let me find a video for u to see and i'll also try and get pics but not sure if it would show any real change compared to a fender rolling video!

Edit: here u go man!

The OP might have to stretch his tires on there to make them fit. I can't see a 285 or 275 fitting on the rear. Might have to drop down to 255 to make it fit also.
Will definitely need to! Maybe run 35 profile man to get a little more meat but either 245 or 255 in the rear and a 225 or 235 in front!

I'm gonna first see if the wheels clear the front brakes and go from there. Let me know how you project turns out later. I might have to hire you and your bud to help me with the rear on my car. Thanks

Just let me know! Maybe if u get fender rolling from him he can help u with wheel sizing or even help u get some wheels! He's more familiar with work wheels and have some nice hook ups! Here is his work:

The red G35 is mine and Oreo might be posted there later as well!

Heat gun is a must, i've seen people roll fenders without using a headgun and their paint cracked or started showing stress marks.
