    How was the fitment with the 325s? Was thinking about going this route but was concerned about clearance on a 19x11 with +50 offset with the 325/30s

    I'm using the same offset. They are all 19x10.5 and 45 offset with 20mm spacer in front.

    so with the spacers, you are really running 25mm offset in the front and 45mm offset in the back. You chose to use spacers but you could have done it without as well.

    thanks for the details.

    10.5 et45 does NOT work on the front. et35 does, barely with traditional (not Magneride) strut and depends on tire whether it rubs. The safest value is et30 or less.

    The reason is for a true square setup. I can rotate the wheels.

    I think he meant the front offset can be 25 instead of using spacers.

    My PP2 finally has a full winter setup. I went with a set of Blizzak LM-32 in size 275/35R19 and 19" VMR V710 Gunmetal wheels. I wanted to keep the offset and outer wheel diameter as close to OEM PP2 as possible. I ordered the wheels in :

    Fr: 19 x 9.5 ET22
    Rr: 19 x 9.5 ET45

    Should I want to, can can still put a winter tire as small as 245/40, or 255/40 on these wheels. The lug pockets on these wheels are 32mm and the OEM lug nuts are 30mm. I did use the OEM lug nuts but the tire shop had a hell of a time making sure they did not mark up the pockets. I think I will purchase a set of CJ Pony Parts small diameter lug nuts or a set of splined nuts if I can find a set that are shorter than 2" and made by a reputable company.

    I think the fitment and drive-ability so far are great. Since a picture is worth a thousand words, here you go.

    Nice looking winter setup. I am assuming your using your OEM set for track use? I thought about that but went with All seasons and the OEM wheel...Thanks for your post on the mismatched wheels as well.

    Finally got my daily set on. Currently on OZ Leggera HLT 19x9.5 ET52 with 25mm spacers and 285/35 Pirelli PZero All Seasons. Wanted to be able to rotate my tires with a square setup.20200122_105447.jpg 20200122_104349.jpg

    OEMs still have the Cup 2 yet to be put on. Not sure what I plan on doing with the Summer setup. No matter what it will get a summer only tire. May go 4S and sell the Cup2 (1200miles) if I can get a buyer.

    Wow, love the green!!! first time I have seen photos of a Green PP2. Looks nice. I get the idea of using spacers to rotate tires.

    Did you need to get longer studs or are you using the spacers that have their own studs and only use the factory studs to mount the spacers? Do you have at least 14mm of thread showing?


    If yes, do the OEM lug nuts still fit or did you need to get 2" ones to go down the longer studs?

    You *always* go with longer studs and slip-on spacers. The OE studs (modulo spacer thickness) have 30mm of stud proud. (eg. 1" longer studs but only 20mm spacer would yield 35mm of stud showing) Most people who do extended studs run open-end nuts. But the closed end variety can work depending on combo of stud and spacer length.

    Thank you! Wasn't a big fan of the need for green but the more I saw it in person I ended up falling in love with it.

    I'm using spacers that use their own studs. And the length of the studs for the spacers is the same length of the factory ones. If you're planning on using spacers make sure to torque them to factory specs. I was still able to use the OEM lug nuts as well.
