joe,

how's the clearance on a 255/40-18 on an 18x9 +35? would i need to go 255/35-18 to still clear everything?

Hi Sam

I like youre idea. Youre more in the "kill zone" with this spec. Ran your no.s using the 40 series. You will have a -2.71% speedo error but dont think youll need a fender pull.

Certainly a rear roll should do it. It may need to be a nice tight roll vs a 3/4" roll as some of us have. Dont think youll be needing the bumper bolt relocation either.

You know me, I like meaty tires, so the 40 series would be my choice.

Not sure what wheel this is, but hopefully no front spacer is needed

it's a negative error? i thought 255/40-18 will be taller? i'm running 255/40-17 and it's very close to stock height.

i'm consdering getting some volks in 18x9 +35 to "start," just exploring some other options

Yes, definitely a taller tire but comes up as a neg due to the slower rotation. i.e. at 60mph you'll be showing 58.38

sorry for all the requests - i realized i could just stuff the 265s on the 18x9 - i'm assuming in this case too the fitment is all around better. a little wider but much shorter, should still have rolled fender and bumper bolt clearance.

Sure, the 265/35 works w/that wheel but I think the overall look & street performance is better w/the 255/40 (more side wall protection on the street & looks beefy)

But, if the 265/35 is your choice, it should fit OK w/a tight rear roll. The bumper bolt relocation may not be needed but it will be close (very dependent on rear camber setting). If you set your rear camber to -2.0 degrees, that will help a great deal

Is anyone running the new NT03RR?

I saw them for sale 18x9.5 +27
Not sure how the fitment would be or if I'd run into any issues w/ a 255/40 tire.

These would be going on my IX. I'm on Bilsteins/Swifts now, but will be installing a set of coilovers this spring.

I'm ok w/ rolling the fenders but nothing more than that. Also, I have mud flaps...and I really do not want to get rid of them.

Very popular wheel, but will need some aggressive rear fender work beyond the roll. You can certainly attempt just the roll (should be a flat roll) but a rear pull would likely be needed for a true, no rub fit
Also, due to running the +27 & the 40 series tire, you will have to relocate the rear bumper bolt

If you search Enkei NT03, there are many threads w/many comments. Front spacer will be needed (approx 12mm)

If you have further questions, let me know

BTW, the flaps will have to go w/that 40 series tire, Sorry =(

Go with 255/35 if you can. I had to take off my mudflaps because they rubbed in the front at full lock with 245/40's (also on NT03's), so 255/40 would be even worse.

With 255/35 being almost 2cm shorter than the 245/40 I have now, I think they could fit without rubbing on the mud flaps.

And as mentioned by Minus, front spacer is needed (I went with 10mm and it's enough, so should be the same for NT03RR assuming spoke design is unchanged from the NT03+M) and there's a good bit of work needed on the rear fender. I'm running -3 front and -2 rear camber FWIW. I did the front DYI fender mod which I didn't need to make 245/40 fit, but I expect will be needed for 265's I hope to put on eventually.

Bump because I'm looking for a 10.5 wheel that will work. I'll drop down to a 10" wheel if i have to, though. I'd *like* to run a 275 tire.
My 17x9.5 +38 RPF rubbed the lower, rear control arms slightly... but an 18" wheel puts the rim farther forward, where there is more room. May work?

I've been up and down this thread and can't find where someone posted a 10.5 wheel that works LOL. Still reading, though.

**edit: it looks like the tire I want to run in a 275 is SERIOUSLY tall (40). Maybe I'd have to drop down a 265, in which case I guess I can stick with a 9.5 wheel and keep things simple.
Bummer. I was looking for a reasonable upgrade from a 255.

Anything over 10" is really out of my wheel house. 10.5 is way wide & needs major fender tuning which I dont think you want unless youre thinking about over fenders

Jason, This is a track wheel, correct?

Yes, sir. I suppose a 10.5 is unrealistic, seeing how my 9.5s were rubbing the CRAP out of my front fender liners with PSRS and an effective +13mm offset. LOL.

I don't mind pulling /cutting/trimming/ etc. I'd like to mount some cheap overfenders, but they are all kinda pricey and I'm not sure really all that worth it.

If your still going to street your EvO, then I would stick with the 9.5" wheel, keeping it clean looking.

The track guys sacrifice the clean fit w/the aggressive wheel/tire package
