New Shoes!!

Yesterday I had the TSW Bathurst wheels put on, Stayed with the 19" wheels so I could keep my factory tires.

Took a few pictures after the install.

The gap was always there, just less noticeable when the wheels/tires are no longer tucked up under the fender.

What is the backspacing or offset for the wheels you have? Are they the same specs as below? If so, the rears are nearly 1-inch further out, which is significant. This is why you see so many people wanting to lower their vehicle after they install wider wheels with more aggressive offsets.

TSW Bathurst
Front: 19x8.5 +35 (0.51 out) 21.4 lbs
Rear: 19x9.5 +39 (0.96 out) 22.5 lbs

I believe those are the new specs, so that would explain it, In my head I thought same tires meant same fit lol.

Love them. So what's the deal here, do these need spacers or are they good to go as stock?

I've been eyeing these for some time.

You will need 3mm spacers, without question. They put the on to test fit without and they were up against the caliper. With the 3mm spacer up front gives it just enough to clear. The rear needs no spacers at all.

Thank you so much!! I am really stressing the gap on the rear now, I really do not want to lower the car and I am afraid now it looks horrible.

Have you driven car since the change to settle the suspension mag ride if equipped might need to cycle thru settings while driving.

Drove it 2 miles from the tire shop to the house and 3 miles to work this morning, But I did not adjust the MAG ride, I always keep it on performance mode, but I will go to touring and back when I leave work today and see if that does anything. I just hope the gap doesnt make the car look bad now.
