How is everyone doing? , im new to the forum. Im not that tech wiz with this lol. I work in the medical field, so go easy on me LOL. I have a 2015 q50 sport awd on 245/40/19 from facory with offset 50 all around. I put on Continental dws. I wanted to get the 20' 255/35/20 offset 40 all around q60 red sport wheels with swift springs or bc coils. To avoid transfer case issues, I thought all around diameter in awd is the way to go. Saw some pictures on the group, looks great!

I found some nice vossen vsf5 staggered wheels/tires for sale in great condition.

20×9 offset 32 245/35/20 michellin pilot super sports

20x10.5 offset 45 275/30/20

Will this be ok, or I need 285/30/20 for equal diameter and have 0% change. I read on fitment industries you should have no more than 1% in diameter from front and rear on awd, and other sites. Pretty much, I don't want to have issues with the AWD and its system, I purchased the elite warranty. So I wouldn't want to in the future have problems, if they arise and be denied due to the wheels.

Will the ride be stiff as heck, I live in Jersey, so we already have bad roads to begin with.
Or should I just keep on looking for a 20x9 wheels with 255/35/20 all around.

If you had a choice, if price was the same to purchase. Will you go either get the Q60 red sport AWD wheels with the 255/35/20 or this Vossen VSF5 setup?


Thanks!!!

Decided to pull the trigger on a set of Forgestar F14s in gloss bronze burst, 19x9 +38. Thanks to @jodedor and @Philogynist for the tips! That thread about the CF10s clearing the akebonos at +40 convinced Forgestar that the F14s would clear in a similar offset. Prior to that, they were recommending +30. Will post up some pics once they arrive in early July.

Stock wheels were 17s
Had to go bigger, because I live in Texas and everything is, well you know, bigger in Texas. So I got 20s (20x9.5 +30) and they looked great, but heavy.
Now I am on Some Enkei RPF1 wheels in 18x9.5 +38. I love them. Wishing the tires I got had a bit stiffer side wall, they feel a little flimsy when cornering, but went with these for weight savings. Maybe time for some Hotchkis Sway bars??? lol

I am lowered on RSR Super Downs.
Currently running the Enkei RPF1, 18x9.5 +38, with General GMAX RS 265/35/18 tires

COVID has wreaked havoc on the timeline. Apparently, Forgestar has a shortage of 19x9 blanks used to make the F14s. I was told last week that it will be another 4 weeks minimum. I was trying not to think about it, so thanks for bringing it up :LOL:.

Last year I had 265/40/18, this year I've gone to 255/45/18, I bit more sidewall, the ride is much better. 265/35, your Speedo is going to be off. Close to 6%.

Yeah, its a good 1 inch difference in total height from a 265/40. When I run these tires down I will up to a aspect ratio of 40.

What wheel width and offset are you running the 255/45/18 on?

you should be ok...try plugging in your specs and my specs and see if they are the same....in will theyfitdotcom

Ok...here it is for you as I was certain it would be ok and was curios to know if I was.

As you can see, the top outside edge of your tire is the same as the top outside edge of mine. Mine barely clears, but it clears and not with a bunch of nonsensical negative camber. My camber is -1.6 all around.

so pretty much if i were to go on Bc Coils and drop it as long as i have the same or near the same camber it will be fine?

To add to the pool of wheel/ tire data, I received 305/30/19 Falken FK510s. They’re almost 13” wide unmourned and weigh 28.4 lbs. these are going out back on a RWD 19 Sport on 19x11 +55 wheels. Mounted on this size wheel they should be as wide as 325 Michelin’s but save 4

Let me know how that works out. I’ve got a stock 16 q50 red 3.0t and am looking at going to 18” black rims (makes the silver car look mean) with 245/45-18 to get me a bit more road touch but keep the sidewalks big enough for ride. Trying to stay old man stealth.

I came across this gem of a review of several tires.

This is on an M2 Competition, so it may suit RWD more than AWD.
