Yeah, I liked the chrome on black theme of the Niches but I really wasn't purposely looking for an identical look, it just worked out that way. The 20 inch lexanis were a cheap, chance craigslist score--it just seemed like the thing to do. If I were spending new wheel money, I probably would have went a different route, but this was the right deal at the right time.

No plans to lower the suspension--I don't think there's that much wheel gap--at least not enough to spend the $$ to drop it. My #1 priority was to make the car better to drive. It was harsh on the rubber band tires and would weave back and forth in the ruts in the freeway on my daily commute like my old 74 square body chevy 4x4 used to. Drove me NUTS ;-)

I prefer the spoke design on the 20" set, goes pretty well, and looks nice from the side too!

That'll be a question for me.

245/35/20 and 285/30/20. Tire rack recommends 255/35/20 but you'll have a better matching overall diameter with the 245/35/20 up front with the 285/30/20. Great for the AWD setup as that's the tire size we do for all G/Q AWD.

Sorry bro - Another noob question
I gave you the wrong offsets - His front are 35 and rear are 38 - Does it really matter? or can we do the same size for the tires you listed above.

Hey guys I just scored a square 19x9 set of Redsport wheels. The wheels are stamped 37 on the backside of the spokes.

I have a 12 Sport Sedan and wanted to make sure the fronts are going to fit without any rubbing. I will be dropped mildly on coilovers. No tires on the wheels at the moment so I can only test fit them while up on the lift. I am planning on running 245/40/19 unless I am persuaded otherwise.

I don't think the rears will be much trouble but after test fitting the fronts it appears that it's going to be close. But again tough to tell.

Definitely don't want to be worried about rubbing tires.

I did see another member running these wheels but his appear to be a staggered setup and I am not sure of the width and offset of those specific wheels.

Thanks for the input!

Pretty sure you will be fine. The wheels will tuck in naturally from being dropped on the coilovers. OEM wheels are not very aggressive in terms of offset and width.

If indeed those are +37 offsets you will be golden!

Thanks guys. I ordered the tires and should be able to get them mounted this week. I'll report back once I can get them on the car regarding the fitment.
