from post 8 on that thread, it does look like there isn't that much caliper clearance for that offset (looks like a +22).

i looked at autoeuphoria's instagram and saw that he has quite some poke for his fronts--a lot more poke than i would expect from a +38 with 5mm spacer.
misunderstanding? You’re misinformed and had no experience with this wheel. And then you play guessing game cause someone said something on Instagram?

I posted on the dude’s Instagram and he responded with a 10 mm barely clearing. And Rays suggest 3 mm in addition for spoke flex. So now you’re at effective +25. This is why Rays designs this wheel for proper caliper clearance at +22 to clear for the CT9A.
I rather you admit “I don’t know” then to carry a vague argument trying to justify what dude was running on his car.

I dont claim to know everything but if I don’t know I just won’t comment. This thread is about giving members researching set ups accurate information, not speculations on what someone said on the internet.

Hey does anyone know if Ray Gramlights 57CR in 17x9 in either +22 or +38 will clear rotors and require guard work? If not which one will offer the 'best' fitment?

Not sure about the caliper clearance. Very unlikely the +38 would clear the front Brembos. Possibly the +22 would?

You can certainly fit-up the +22's, but you will need a rear fender roll & a slight rear fender pull & the bumper bolt relocation, running a 255 or 265/40 tire

The +38 is our stock offset so no work needed rear or front

Looks like I'm SOL on getting a set of Volk ce28SL in 17x9.5+28 they are out of stock. So now looking at Volk ce28n in 18x9.5+28, and wanted to check with you guys to see if you guys know if that rim size will have the deep dish long rim look?

Heres an example of the 18x9.5 +28 (Takata Green) as it was noted. One of my favorite RS pics of all time

Great wheel but the standard rear fender work is needed. If you know what tire size I can do the layout for you

good question as the lip size on CE28SL are somewhat different depending on offset. When you look at Rays size chart for this wheel (see link below), you want a rim that has the L (Long) Rim. The SS rim is the short version and will have a skimpy lip. In the past Rays did not actually display this on their site. They started doing it with the RE30. The odd thing is that some sizes are missing which were previously available on the CE28N. For example under the 18x9.5 sizes, there are +22 and +35 (Both of these are SS (Short) Rim and have the smaller lips but do have the concave spokes...) but gone are the +28 and +34 which tells me the molds of the SL are different than the CE28N since the spokes change and its not just backspacing.

IF YOU WANT CE28N in 18x9.5... From personally owning or knowing friends running them the following all have the same lip. +34, +28, +24, +22, +15. As for the spokes... all +24 and below have the most concave for this size. The spokes dive in toward the center. The +28 and +34 have more flat spokes but are still somewhat different among themselves. So to make this all less confusing... look for CE28Ns in 18x9.5 +28 like MinusPrevious posted and are still being produced. The +34, +24 (CE28RT only) and +22 are no longer being produced for the CE28N. Like I said earlier, the CE28SL DO NOT COME IN +28 in 18" size per their size chart. If you go with the 17x9.5 +28 SLs, the chart does not show them as clearing the calipers. So keep that in mind. And I have never seen this size and offset on a CT9A. My bet is to stick with the 18x9.5 +28. Tried and true spec and will look nice. Search it here on the forum... plenty have ran it in the past. Good luck and hope this helps you.

I plan to run 255/35/18 tires with the 18x9.5+28 ce28n. So need to roll the rear fenders. Will a rear fender pull and rear bumper bolt relocate be needed running gtworx springs and stock bilstein shocks, also will rally armor mudguards clear with this setup?

Heres your setup vs mine. You will need a tight rear fender roll to avoid the pull. The bumper bolt is going to be close but you may need to move it rearward. If you were going to run a wider tire (265 or 275) for sure, the rear fender pull will be needed

I measured your proposal vs mine as I needed all the rear fender work tricks to get my setup to work w/out rub

I agree with MinusPrevious 100%. GT Worx are a very mild drop on the Evo 8/9. 20 mm front and 15 mm rear so this will give you added buffer and shouldn't cause rubbing. Especially with 255s. GTWorx designed the spring from a functional standpoint and not a crazy drop. Even the Swifts lower the car more than the GTs.

Looking for offset to fit 315’s on 11” rim. Have modded lower control arms. Which offset tucks rims more under car?

Lets find out what the RS Motors guys ran (Andy S). He's running the WiseFab set up. It may be a +30 but will have to check around

10.5's are the highest Ive seen on a stock body. 11's is certainly over-fender territory!

Edit: Here is the thread where Andy notes the specs:

wheels used are an 18x10.5 +30 offset. no spacer in rear but fronts did use a 15 or 20mm spacer.

The rear was the hardest to make fit. with wisefab, you can actually adjust the rear track width. We had to move everything inwards as far as possible. The rear trailing arms are made for additional clearance vs the stock trailing arms. Also had to do some slight fender pulling but not much, but enough that you'll probably crack a little bit of paint.
