Does Anyone Know Or Is Anyone Running Custom Rims With An Inch Or More Of Lip On The Outside Edge Of The Rim? I Would Like To Put 19x10 In The Rear And 19x9 In The Front. With The Staggered Look. Any Help Or Pictures Would Be Appreciated.

I would stick with 8.5 in the front and stock offsets. With a 255 tire your clearance will be next to nothing.

For the rear with the stock trailing arms you can go 1" to the inside and 1/2 to the outside. But going the 1" to the inside does bring you close to suspension components. I have a 9.5 on the rear where 1/2 in and 1/2 out and it looks great. I have 285/40/18.

With the 19" that should give you more clearance from the trailing arms so you should be fine.

I just joined the CCW/Toyo group. 19x8.5 fronts and 19x10 rears. Picked them up last night and hopefully will mount them tomorrow morning when I get home. The pictures don't do these wheels justice. I was amazed at how well machined they are. Do you guys use the TPM with your new wheels? I ordered them with the TPM's just as a safety reminder. :D

The CCW rears have about a 1" lip as do the fronts I think. The problem is that with a 10" wheel you are even with the fender so lowering is out. Also, post 2004 cars do not have a rolled inner fender lip. THis causes slicing the baloneys... ask staxxin.

I had to roll my fenders to fit 19x10's on my V that is lowered on Eibachs. I even went with a 275/35. Before rolling, I sliced the piss out of my rubber.

Since then, I've had an unfortunate meeting with a curb, but some good came of the ordeal as now my rear fenders have been pulled out about 2" or so. I should be getting my new wheel in the next month or two, so I'll post some pics up then.

I think my rear lip is about 2.5 or 3" at best. I have about 1" available toward the inside and now with my flares, I may be able to tuck another 1" of rim the other way, too.

The following picture is of a CTS i put 20" wheels on that have a minimum of a 2" lip.
