16x10 wheel offset (fc)

Preparing to order wheels, looking for offset info. Planning to run 16x10, what offset is needed?

I assume you have aftermarket fenders?

from my experience less than +30 in the back and less than ~+10 in the front is as far in as you can probably go

but that won't fit under stock front fenders and the rear will be close depending on what tires you're running.

No aftermarket fenders, wheel fitment will determine how much flare i'll need to build. Trying to get the wheel as close to the strut as possible.

what front struts are you running?

I ran a 275/40/17 A6 on a 17x10 +35 on the back and had issues with the tire rubbing both the muffler and the control arm, I spaced it out 5mm (now +30) and it rubs against the rolled fender.

I'm currenty switching from a 17x8 to a 17x9 up front, so I don't have hoosier specs yet (they're much wider), but I have a 255/40 all season on a 17x9 +25 on the front with custom struts... (and -3.5* of camber) that barely fits under generously rolled fenders.

running 16s on the front is going to push the wheel out more since the strut is angled.

I'd just get some stock 16s or something and measure the distance between the strut and wheel and use that.worst case you can add a small spacer if it rubs on something.

Will be running a standard 2.5" coilover setup.
