19x10.5 wheel offsets

I'm looking to get a new squared set of wheel for my car that are lighter than the stock wheels. Something like the TSW Nrings or Forgestar f14's. I know a I have seen a few people run this setup but can't seem to find the correct offsets to prevent any rubbing or interference with the wheel/tire and anything else on the car. Any help in finding this out will be greatly appreciated.

Oh.. I'm also lowered about 1.5" all around as I'm sure that makes a difference and will be getting aftermarket swaybars soon. Thanks again!

Without someone who owns the Romans measuring for you, most people will not give up that info unless they are the ones who are producing them, asked that same question months ago to some vendors, I respect that. You might find the info on the manufacturers website

Thanks. Thats what I was figuring. The vendor that Ive spoken to cant verify if their wheels will fit with this configuration on a 27mm offset. I may have to drop the size down to a 19X10.... wich wouldnt be too bad... but i really want the 10.5 wide.... ill keep looking around....

I have 20x10 with a 35 offset. It works fine with up to 1-1.5 deg of neg camber....275 nitto nt05s. 27 is going to be 8mm further to the outside of the car. I would say that would probably put the edge of the rim lip flush with the fender if you drew an imaginary line at 12 oclock. It would probably look similar to the ZL1 offset which sticks out more than mine. I don't know about the 10.5...but quick math says 25mm offset for 10.5 is needed. If my math is correct you could roll with it and it if rubs the strut use a 5mm spacer. This will limit your tire width though....I'm not sure what to. You need someone else in here.

Maybe talk to LPE, they put 10.5s all the way around on the L28 car. Don't know if they'll give that info out, but it is worth a shot.

The problem with TSW and Forgestar is that they do not make custom offsets. You buy what they got. You should be sending your question to them. If they can't give you a definitive "YES", then go some where else (like Forgeline).

I have 20x10 +40mm offset wheels all the way around with 275 tires on front and 305 on back.

I had a minnor issue inthe front where I had to restrict the camber setting to - 1/2 degrees or risk some tire rubbing on the strut tower until I replaced the lowering springs with Pedders Coil Overs.

The Pedders Coil Overs give you 10mm widder tracking per side. Having this extra clearance I can now get the more agressive camber settings like Grocerygetter talked about in his post (neg 1 1/2 degrees).

So if you are running stock struts with lowering springs look for wheel offsets of +30 to +20 in the front, if you have or will get a coil over suspension (Pedders or Phadt) offsets of +40 to +30 is what you should be looking for...

Hope this helps.

Note: A 10 inch wheel verses a 10.5 wheel with the same offset will not change clearances seen by the same size tire, being the tire when properly sized for wheel is always going to be wider than the wheel and therefore it determines the clearance you have.

I don't know for sure but my fear wouldn't be the front...it would be the rear hitting the fender with a 27. You can adjust height I guess.

I sometimes use carid(.com) to find rims that will fit, unfortunately they aren't ones for precise specs which is a pain but supposedly they will only show you rims with the correct offsets and such to fit your car, hope that helps.

I use this site, which I find very helpful to decide if a wheel/tire combination will work for me:

http://www.rimsntires.com/specs.jsp

What I do is put my front stock wheel/tire characteristics for the first selection and then characteristics of the combination I would like to use on the front for the second selection.

They show impacts of the potential change on the web page and you can dicide if that will work for you or not.

You can then repeat the process for the rear wheel/tires...

Well when you type in 2012 camaro ss it lets you pick 19 10.5 with et 27 front and rear so makes me wonder if it will work. I may give it a shot this spring if I have the money but I will order through discount tire because I heard that if it doesnt fit they will exchenge it until it fits. Oh wait let me figure out this other website here and maybe figure out if these will work or not.

You need to find a good local wheel shop that sells something you like...that's what I did. If you are just going to order custom and don't have a local shop...call tony(nine ball)
