Fitment question

I am thinking of going with the following aftermarket setup:

Wheels:

Front: 19" diameter, 8.5" width, 33mm offset
Back: 19" diameter, 9.5" width, 35mm offset


Tires:

Front: 245/35R19
Back: 265/35R19

Will there be any fitment issues? Any rubbing or need for spacers, etc.?

Appreciate any input!

Those wheels are 1/2" narrower than stock

The front wheels will stick out 10 mm LESS than stock and the rear plane / backspacing is basically the same

The rear wheels will stick out the same as stock and logically the backspacing will be 1/2" less than stock

The tires are the same as stock

they will of course not rub because the diameter is the same and the new wheels fit inside the space of the stock wheels

You don't need spacers but adding 20mm front and 10mm rear would make the wheels flush with fenders.

You might want to double check brake clearance.

Getting the Rohana RFX5 wheels:

They should fit without any issues according to Fitment Industries. Will post pictures once I get them mounted!

Do spacers affect driving dynamics at all?

Yes, your mileage may vary.

Not significantly if you just add the same thickness front and rear to OEM wheels but in your case we are trying to bring non OEM wheels closer to stock fitment.

I keep reading many downsides of using spacers. Guess I will only use them if the fitment doesn't look too good.

Can you just get wheels with a "shallower" offset so they stick out more than (or at least the same as) stock? The current wheels you are talking about will be deeper set in front than stock

I see they have the same front wheel with +20 offset - that at least puts the outer face of the wheel the same as stock (ok technically 2mm farther out).

I really like the design of these wheels lol but yeah you're right they will be deeper in than stock. I could just add 10mm spacers at the front and not the back.
