I can't trust anything I say. I first wanted a square size set of wheels, and I still have staggered. I never wanted to install spacers and now look at me. I bought the Work wheels from rlclaw that doesn't clear my front bbk.

I have a question for anyone that has installed 9.5" or wider wheels in the front: my new set is 9" wide with +35 offset. I'll need a 15mm spacer to clear so that's now like a 9" wheel with +20 offset. The tires are 235/35. Do you think I'll need to roll my front fenders? I'm lowered on tein comfort sport. The dimensions seem right at the border line of having to roll.

Here is a teaser pic of the rear until I buy hub rings and tpms sensors and mount the spacers.

It'll really come down to ride height and tire brand.

I'm running a 9" +24 wheel with a 10mm spacer which pushes it +14 & at my height the tire 225/35/19 has massaged the fender slighty, no roll.

Too bad your new rims doesn't clear the front BBK. Looking forward to seeing them installed in the future. Loved your last set of Vossens though.

Thank you. I plan on owning this car for many more years so I keep it in the best shape possible. The window visors are another discontinued Mugen part. I don't have a clear bra on the grill. Up close in person you can see all the imperfections.

Question: What make are your window rain guards? They look so sleek and are not as pronounced as others I have seen for the RL. Your car is RL perfection btw.

The rain guards are made by Mugen. I havenít seen another set for sale for awhile now.

Hey there! car coming along nicely... Your fitment in orange, mine in green.... I am sure you have figured it out that the front will rub if super lowered by now. But!, you have the M1 flares such as I have and that you CAN bow these considerably and still achieve approx 8mm more flare under the fender extensions but you will need to trim the bumper mounting tabs and inner fenders to keep most contacting parts happy.... Also, try considering a 40 aspect ratio. Your car must be short shifting 2nd gear because the vehicle is geared lower with the 35 aspect tire... In my opinion a 40 is ideal as it retains the identical shift points for the AT computer that calculates vehicle rolling load and also provides a better ride. Photo below.. BBS RS-GT 19x9.5 +25, 235/40-19R Potenza RE050A
My 2 cents.

Thank you for the wealth of information! Now that I think about it, I have always ran a 35 tire up front with no issues. My goal was always to have under a 1% rotating mass from the front to rear tires. If I keep these wheels after the tires wear out, I will looking into a size 40.

The same size you currently have if you're talking about keeping the same tires
