Always had a sweet spot for those 19" Rays, and you're spot-on, can't beat the weight, strength, and quality for the price. And that style still holds up well over time, saw some bronze painted Rays on an older 35 and they looked awesome!

Is ChinkyChoy still around? Does anyone know if I will have to roll my fenders to run 19x9.5 +25 up front on a sedan, lowered to about ~26.25"?

Finally got them on.

ESR SR07, 19x9.5 +35 - 10 from a spacer/+35... these do NOT clear the BBK up front; as is I have like 2-3mm of clearance. Tires are 255/40 Continental DWS06s.

Wheels look nice there Future^^too bad you needed that spacing but looks pretty good in front. Glad you were able to make it work!

Yea, it was a real adventure. I like the tire size, and I think the wheel size is OK, but a +35 or even +40 offset would have been perfect. +25 is too much. It does seem like my front fenders clear, which is the main thing. I'm gonna check clearance more thoroughly with some masking tape inside the fender.... if there's contact the tire will chew it up.

That looks amazing to me! I looked at those wheels in Matte bronze. You may make me go ahead and get them. Nice and meaty and aggressive.

I would not go 9.5 all around if you have Akebonos up front. It's very borderline. Looking back at it, I probably should have went 8.5 all around. 255s would still work.

But thanks

I will need new front tires soon. I am so tempted to get a pair of rear duck feet and move the original rears to the front. I am looking at other options as well. I found some new Michelin MXM4s in 245/45/18 that I probably can get the guy down to 400 for the set. It can't be any worse than the Hankook Ventus Nobile's which are horrible in the rain. Ideally I want Summer tires.

That setup will be around 700 installed. I have been told that the rears would fit on the front. I am also looking at some other wheels. One I have found is 18x8.5 with +35. They are 21.4 lbs each, so not too shabby. I don't necessarily want to go 19s, but I might. I would love to have the duck feet painted black, not a bad look. I am still looking since I have other priorities, sometimes patience is your friend.

Those Vardovens are a Kiwami knockoff, IIRC they have a 18x9.5 +35 that would work w/ a slight stretch on the 245s, didn't know they had them in an 8.5" though.

Yeah, unfortunately. I did find some 19x8 G35 Rays, they need to probably been completely repainted. They might look nice in a dark grey or black.

There's a nice staggered 19" Rays set in the classifieds (if they're still available).

Those are nice, the ones I am looking at are about 60 miles away. They claim that they are a 19x8 setup, perhaps two pair of front wheels. I would prefer 18x8.5, the temptation is that they will fit w/o centering rings. I had a car where supposedly centering rings were available and had a vibration some of the time. I know that if I get aftermarket wheels, they will need to have centering rings. I wonder what will look good on my NAK painted car. I think perhaps gray seconded by Black. I found some Motegi Racing with tires, but the offset is 45mm and I don't think that would work with the front wheels.
