Thanks!
Did some calculations on 245/35R18 tires on 8,5x18 ET30 (yeah, not a typo, I also look at some ET30 rims), front and rear. Calculator says "Package 2 will stick out 17 mm (0.7'') farther." Compared to factory 225/50R16 on 7x16 ET37 rims.

OK or not OK? I don't want any rubbing, but the 245 tire will look better than a narrower tire on the 8,5" wide rim.. From your info, it should probably be fine..

That will clear.

My 255/35-18x9.5 +12 setup was 2.3" out towards fender. I was on coilovers with a fender roll. IIRC, 1.5* negative camber.

My 275/35-18x9.5 +35 setup was on Tokico/Eibach with a roll

I always roll my fenders on every sports car just to get it out of the way. Wheels are one of the first mods I'll do.

My RCF and 997 TT got fender rolls. RCF has Advan RZ II and I'm in research mode for the 997 TT. It's most likely getting 18 or 19 x 13 with a 355 tire in the rear lol. Much different than the Supra.

Great, thanks! Now, 245/35R18 will be close to exact stock circumference. Any idea if 245/40R18 will clear without rubbing? I find the "look" more matching with it being an older car with a little bit more rubber - so I'd like the 245/40 if possible. Fenders are not modified, car is very moderately lowered, maybe like 20 mm lower than stock.

never ran a 40 profile on that size. It looks like it may be too tall. I'd recommend running 17s if you want to run that profile

Couple of 19" setups.
Gold ones are 19x9 +20 with 235 35s and 19x10.5 +25 with 275 30s.
Black wheels are 19x9.5 +35 with 245 35s and 19x10.5 +43 with 295 30s.
Car is lowered and fenders rolled. No issues.
Looks like I can go lower with the black wheels. 20200426_214745.jpg 20190809_181246.jpg 20200427_002807.jpg IMG_20200427_185227_675.jpg 20200427_184135.jpg IMG_20200427_185227_662.jpg
