What's a good wheel / tyre size for an evo 10.

Looking at getting some new wheels. What's a good size/offset for a 10. Car is standard at the minute.

Not after anything stupidly big and wide. 9.5 or 9.75 width in either 18" or 19"

Check out my thread. Pictures of 9.5 and 9.75 rims. Also google "Evo X wheel thread" - There's plenty of threads to view (mainly USA). My recent wheel thread

In my view a 9.5"x18" with a 265/35/18 is about as good as it gets on a X. And I think an offset of +20-25, but would need to check that out to be sure.

I have 19" ◊ 9.5" et 21 with 265 30 rubber. Just clears all possible rubbing points, but had to remove front mudflaps.

Would a set of 18x8.75 ET20 work on an X? Also what tyre size is best? The ones I'm considering have a set of 255/35/18 fitted. My car is lowered on coilovers.

They wouldn't be flush. Probably tucked in the arches a good cm. Not sure about calliper clearance either.

I have this size and they fit perfectly with oem rubber size will depend on wheel design and calibers though
