While they may be a direct fit with no additional modifications, we'd suggest at least being prepared to run spacers (and potentially roll the fenders as a result) if attempting to fit 17s over these brakes.

Sick! Looking to do this same fitment more or less on Dinan springs so not as low, do you think this will work with 225/40 and 255/35 tires?

Hi, I have 2 questions:

1. Is the 19x9 +38 a flat face? What's the best tire size to run for mix street/track duties?

2. Is 18x9 +30 flush or poked on a non-lowered car? What's the best tire size to run for mix street/track duties?


Asking for F30 M Sport fitment.

Thank you

The smaller tires will make things easier, but we haven't tested it ourselves to confirm if there will be any rubbing. I recommend at least being prepared to dial in some negative camber if you do experience any rubbing.

We know the 17" ARC-8 will clear the non-M sport OEM brakes, as well as many aftermarket kits up to 355mm. Which particular setup are you referring to?

We don't produce a 19x9" ET38, are you referring to the 19x9" ET28? That wheel does indeed use a Profile 3 concave face. We recommend 255/30-19 tires on that size, which will require some front negative camber, and possibly rolled rear fenders and/or negative camber as well depending on ride height and tire brand.

The 18x9" ET30 is pretty aggressive on a stock suspension, and may poke unless negative camber is dialed in. If you go with this size, I recommend 255/35-18 with the appropriate negative camber dialed in, which will help with both performance and tire wear.

Hi Apex, I got several confirmations (from people who have installed the f30 oem 340mm bakes on 17" ARC-8s) that the wheels will clear the brakes. As soon as I get them mounted I will post fitment pictures. These are the brakes I was referring to:

Dang, wanted to order the ARC-8 19x9.5 +33 / 19x9 +28 in Hyper Silver this week but it looks like the 19x9 +28 won't be available for a couple months.

Would it be possible for me to do the 19x8.5" +20 up front? Wouldn't that be about the same fit as 19x9" +28 up front?

Thanks for the post! The 19x8.5" ET20 would only be 1.6mm more aggressive than the 19x9" ET28, so it will look essentially the same on the outside. The only real difference is you'd be running a narrower tire. Keep in mind this fitment (as well as the 19x9" ET28) may also require slight negative camber up front to prevent rubbing.

Thanks for the post! For no rubbing with no modifications, the widest ARC-8 fitment we recommend is:

Front & Rear: 18x9" ET42 with 245/40-18 tires
- Front spacers may be required with certain aftermarket suspensions.

You can also check out our fitment guide here for other setups that will work: https://support.apexraceparts.com/hc...-Fitment-Guide

Hope this helps!
