You'll be fine on that setup, but personally I would get those wheels in the 18x9.5", 38mm fitment. The faces are more aggressive looking, you'd end up happier!
Thank you! Stuck between deciding on those or the Enkei Dracos in 18x8+45 but not too sure. Already have tires so i can’t do the 9.5

You can mount 235/40's on a 9.5" wheel with no issues. In fact, that's a better setup. It will give you more fender lip clearance on the rear.

with 18x9.5", 35mm with the stock Continentals (235/40's).
The Continentals run skinnier (section width) than the Firestones also.

Hi guys,

can anyone tell me if i got this right, i want to go with 19x9.5 +38, and i'm lowered on Eibach pro kit.
The setup i'm seeing here and like mostly is 18x9.5 +38, so the question is if i go inch up (19), will the spacing from the fenders be same as it's on the pictures with 18x9.5?

thanks!

Using a 235/35-19 tire on the 19x9.5, 38mm will put you at 25.5" outside diameter, which is .2" shorter than a setup I used successfully with 18x9.5 "wheels, 38mm &(245/40-18). Stock STH/ST & Si's came with 235/40-18's which are 25.3" outside diameter. I always try to stay close to that, and going over a bit is better than under, due to mileage acrual.
My STH is lowered on Eibach Sportlines, and required about -2° of rear camber to make the setup work w/o rubbing.
Hope that helps you out.

Damn, this set of wheels has me wishing I had sprung for the R and thinking about ordering up a Spoon widebody kit! (I know ;-() And I'm old enough to remember when I put 15x6 Enkie gold mesh wheels with Yoko 205x50's on a Jetta and they were huge! KUDOS TO THE OWNER OF THE PIC, found it around page 212. Trying to convince my wife that my 14 year old needs a 2020 Si and I need Type R right now!
