EAS made a thread about the V713's saying they are in 1series offsets, 19x8.5 ET45 and 19x9.5 ET45. I asked in there as well. My wheel vendor asked VMR if the 19's would fit and they said "they should", but that has me concerned.

I know when I was trying to get 18's from them, I had ET50's for the rear.

I emailed a vmr salesperson and they said told me this would work with no mods...

18x8.5F et+45 225x40x18
18x9.5R et+45 245x35x18

255 in rear would be nice but he wasn't positive it wouldn't rub but the 245 is fine...

im prob getting my vmr 710 in matte black, or 713... cant decide but gotta check n see who has what in stock

Hey, im also getting the matt black and they told me the exact samething about the rear should be 245 et+45 and it woudnt be a problem becaus they told me the 255 might rub they were not sure

what tires are you getting? i was thinking of getting the yokohma sport

cuz they run a 245/45/18

rather get ET50 rear with a 255, unless you like a stretched look with a 245.

or look at this:

what this guy said. Anything wider than 245, be prepared to roll those fenders.

I'm running 225/35/19 and 245/35/19 both ET45.

No problems thus far.

I do see a red flag going up with a 255 setup along with ET45 though. I feel that is a little too wide and may cause rubbing.

9.5 +45's can work with 1-Series at stock height with a 245 tire. 9.5 +50's can work with a 255 tire.

Depending on how aggressive you would like the stance to be, +45-50 can be your options.

This is what ET +45 and 245 rears on a 9.5" rim look like, the stretching isn't THAT bad though it is a tad noticeable. Doesn't look too bad but is a little more prone to rashing them up.

you can kinda see from this photo.

Hankooks seem to be great bang for the buck and fit nicely but you won't run 255 on +45 without a fender roll. I've tried.

Get +50 on the rear. A 245 stretched on a 9.5 looks

8.5 +45 on front with 225
9.5 +50 on rear with 255

People that get the +45 on rear usually end up complaining.

.

Even on a 18 inch rim i would still have a problem with et 45? VMR do not have et+50 for another 4 months.. i cant wait..... that long


i mean how bad can it be whats the worse case get my fender roll, i guess

or just go ith the VMR701 insted of the 710 but i want the 710 style.. oh boy this is drving me crazy

I personally like the 701's better but thats my taste. Think about it this way, do it the right way or don't do it at all. You want the ET45s, then get 245 tires. U want to wait for the ET50's, then wait the 4 months. Or you can get something else.

Honestly, the 45's with 245s on them aren't that bad. If you have stock suspension and want to roll the fenders then get the ET45's with 255 but you need both for it to work.
