Arrow W140 Wheels/Rims & Tires Fitment

Since there are a lot of questions regarding wheel and tire fitment, lets start a thread. Please put in your own experience of have at least seen it done through someone you know. Do not post speculative info. Please only put info you are sure will fit

Please post:
1. Wheel Specs - size, width, offset
2. Tire Specs - (e.g. 245/40R19 front, 275/35R19 rear)
3. other pertinent info (e.g. car was dropped, spacers were used, lugboltsmodified LCAs, etc)

and more importantly
4. Pics - doesnt have to your car, could be someone else's


Please keep personal discussions to a minimum. This will help other people get to the info they need faster. We can make this a sticky later on. But for now its in the knowledge base (see 1st post)

slight rubbing in the front left under the same conditions as above

For those of us who may have aftermarket wheels, ahem, and require shorter lugs in order not tear out the parking brake or stick out of the wheels, would you provide sources/vendors, where shorter shank lugs may be purchased.

14mmX1.5 and _____ MM length.

My wheels have less flange thickness due to design and offset so.... thanks!

Also Tires sizes for 18x8 and 18x9.
