I'm getting a hold of some 32 offset 18x10s, and will be testing them. I will get pics of my awesome rubbage. They are not my 1st choice of wheels, but they will help me find the right fitment. Also ordered in some 18x9.5s in a +37. Not for me, customer, but gonna see how they fit as well.

we are talking about 18x10's ... on a MS6.... not 18x8 on a ms3....

-- the reason your rubbing is your front offset... should have been something smaller... like a 45-38mm... not the tire size...

+ your suspension is too soft.. go w/ a stiffer rate spring.. i ran a 18x9/18x8 set up on my 3 all day long... dropped on Eibach's.. w/ some mazdaspeed sways had no issues... ... & i live in the NorthEast where the roads Suck...

**
always do measurements 1st ... do your research... if it dont fit its on u....

So far no luck, but still waiting on some other wheels. I had an epic fail on our "new" corgi A2024, so I got a new machine coming. Boo. 255s will fit 8.5's...but it needs 9.5-10 to look good. They fit all the way around, but stick out with my offset more than the wheel lip does...so no go. I will get the higher offset/wider wheels soon enough and get some new pics. sorry for the delay. But I did have 255/35/18s on the 6 last night...but just on my 8.5s.

hmm.... 255/35/18 on 8.5 wheels.... sounds tasty
what offset were those wheels? +35?
camber settings F/R?
how much are the sportlines lowered? 1.5?

I really appreciate the effort you're putting in on this to reach your goal - and it sounds like you have the means to try different setups much more easily than the rest of us! Hopefully we can find the maximums!

Yes, 18x8.5 with +35offset. the 255s were TIGHT. I am running -1.6 front and -2.8 rear.
I am going to try 10inch with a 38offset and hope that gives enough room in the rear, but what I am fearing is that I am going to have to run a staggered offset front and back to achieve the look I want. So....10 in the front with 255 with a +35/37 and rear I have no clue yet....

Yes, 18x8.5 with +35offset. the 255s were TIGHT. I am running -1.6 front and -2.8 rear.
I am going to try 10inch with a 38offset and hope that gives enough room in the rear, but what I am fearing is that I am going to have to run a staggered offset front and back to achieve the look I want. So....10 in the front with 255 with a +35/37 and rear I have no clue yet....

please tell me u arent thinking of running a 18x10 in a reverse staggered set up... as in widest up front...

u should be able to fit the 18x10 all thaa way around.. but yoru deff going to have to run 2 diff offsets... thats just the way it has to be done...

No no no.....18x10 front and back. slightly diff offset on the rear, not width. Duh.
Also...got my promo from Bridgestone last friday. They are allowing me 4 sets of tire per year at 25% LESS than my COST from wholesale. Werd..... RE-01R.

Still nothing guys, sorry...I kept the 8.5's and am changing tires today, but no 10s yet. Still looking for a the right offset. 245s on 8.5 is giving me a nice tight shoulder, no more stretched look for the 6....till I get the 10's. I was gonna say F it, and order the 9.5s, but I don't want to hate them and have to sell another set of wheels and tires. I will just wait. I will get the pics up of the 245/40s on the 8.5s (35 offset).

so today i swapped my OEM wheels back on... took off my winter rollers-- & i decided to try on the stagg set up i had onthe 3 .. & also tried putting both 18x9" wheels on one side.. just to get a feel for the look....

.. take into consideration.. that the tire size was perfect for the 3.. but way way to small for the 6.. obviously... & yes i know my car needs a drop...


this is all 18x9 (f/r)







==
18x8/18x9 set up


====

so now im thinking maybe a 19x9 or 19x10 wheel... the 10" wide will deff fit in the rear...

I want to go with 19x9.5 (maybe even a bit wider) on my MS6. Is there any way to make it work??? Gusto, Monstar, what offset do you think would be needed? I'd need them to work for daily driving most importantly. But I also want to have that set up and slam the car at shows with the coilovers.

P.S. - did anyone ever find out the offset to MPSGARAGE's 19x9's?

9.5 will deff fit in the rear... its goin to be hard to shove them in the front...

u live in FL.. so it should be easy for the 19s...

its been a while since ive done the measurements on the wheels.. but im thinkin u should be able to stick a 50-55mm in the rear w/ a 9.5-10 wide rim...

there is a series of calculations u can do .. to know exactly.. if u really want to know. i can post them for u.. then u will know the largest u can really go w/

although im going to boston for the weekend.. so ull have to give me alil bit to psot them...
============================

i should really try that staggered set up on my car.. now that i dropped it.. on mazdaspeed springs...

its hard to find NICE 18x10 that arent a fortune... esp.. if i want to get a motorcycle too.. heh

Tru, yeah those measurements would be cool. No rush man, it's gonna be a while before the wheels are actually purchased. How far would 9.5's or 10's stick out tho? I really don't wanna go past flush. After I saw inside the wheel well, idk if flush can be accomplished with 19x9.5's.
