      19x10 +4x with a 265/30 fk452. PO wasn't sure of the offsets so I'm guessing a little bit. I plan on test fitting another set of wheels I have this weekend so I'll measure the back spacing and get back to you guys.

      The tires are 265/30. I posted a picture of it a few pages back. I could have been misinformed about the wheels sizes but I have no reason to suspect the PO was lying.

      Didn't scam me. They came on the car and the only reason they're still on is because I'm waiting for the bolts to put my LMs back together.

      ah i see the pic. check the actual wheel spec please, i seriously hope i'm completely wrong about it being an 18" (even though i see the tire is 19) ... and please tell me the fronts are the same diameter as the rears

      Who looks at their wheels when they are at stock height lol. I mainly really want to resolve this cause I keep rubbing paint off the passenger side and only now noticed the uneven poke.

      So your saying my rear beam shifted? I would have to get it centered and then in turn center the subframe? The weird thing is I remember the alignment guy telling me there was something off about the right side but he got the wheels to line up.

      I unno. I would notice at stock if one side was poking more than the other. Guess I'm just OCD..
