I'm thinking about buying some TSW Trackstar 4's with a 45mm offset (15x6.5)

Currently I'm running with Mogeti Racing MR7 35mm offset 15x6.5 and Yokohama S Drives 195/45/15 tires and I have no rubbing after I rolled by rear fender lips. My car is lowered with H&R springs and Koni shocks so it is sitting about 1.3" lower.

My understanding is that these TSW wheels will push my wheel setup 10mm closer to the suspension. From feeling behind my current setup it feels like I have enough room in the front and back. However I will have to trim part of an exhaust hanger as its about 5mm from my back inside portion of the tire.

Anybody run a 45mm offset with a 15x6.5 rim and 195/45/15 tires and have some feedback for me?

I'm running OZ wheels off a Mitsu Rally Lancer.

They are 6" wide with a 46 mm offset. I've got 195/50-15, cut springs and rolled rear fender lips. The only rubbing I get is in front at full lock.

The car had 6.5" rims with a 40 mm offset, same tires and same rubbing at full lock.

The car looked better with the wheels outboard more. Maybe I'll hunt down some 5 mm spacers.

I was looking at those but with the gt rear suspension and those offsets the rear would be real sunken in on my car so i decided against it.

ET45 sounds awfully close on the inside.
