So, for those of you who've received your 2019 GT350's, have any of you had a look at the OEM wheel offsets?

The reason I'm wondering is that Ford has changed the track-use camber recommendations in the Owner's Supplement for 2019, and the new GT350 recommendations are for a lot more camber than in the 2016-18 Supplements. Now, for the front, the new optional camber plates allow more camber so it's no surprise that Ford upped the recommended setting. But for the rear, the limitation on camber with OEM rims is actually the risk that the inner sidewall of the tire will move in far enough to rub on the upper shock mount.

On my 2016 with stock rims, I don't think there's actually enough room behind the tire to run the new recommended camber of 2.2 degrees, up from 1.0 degrees. So that's what got me wondering if the newly restyled GT350 rims have less offset than the original GT350 rims with ET62.

Does anyone know for sure?

my '19 rears are stamped with a 62 offset. my car has -2.5 camber rear with no rubbing anything. No clue what else may be different from previous years....

also running R spec 6gr wheels with no issues...

Thanks! I've been running 325's back there on 11" ET62 OEM rims and it took a 7 mm spacer (ET55) to stop the tires rubbing, and that's with the stock -1.1 degrees of rear camber. I was worried that if I went back to 305's on the same rims and cranked the camber up to -2.4 degrees, I'd end up with rubbing unless I kept the spacer.

Sounds like it's not a problem!
