9" wide and +22 is way way way past the fender. You'll need a lot more than fender rolling. Stock is 7.5" and +53 so you're 50mm further out than stock. Probably a good 20mm past the actual fender.

It's not being 20mm past the fender that's the problem, it's having a fender that goes down smack in the middle of your tire that's a problem. It needs to be completely cut away at that point (widebody kit). Hell, at that offset, you're going to have to modify the front fender well quite a bit just to be able to turn the wheel decently.

You don't have to find the exact wheel you want to know whether the specs will work or not.

I ran 18x9.5 +22 on stock but highly modified fenders for a short time. I ran -3 camber all around. The fenders were rolled and pulled to the maximum that stock can go without folding the fender upwards and causing bodywork.

You can make it work, but you can go with a less aggressive offset (something in the 30's) and less fender work and it will turn out being just as flush. Since you are going with 19's I'm guessing your goal is more for looks. So if you must go +22 you can make it work, but you will have to do all sorts of little extras to get rid of all of the rubbing. I have 9" +30 offset wheels right now, and with all the fender work and camber I did for the 9.5" +22 wheels previously I could fit a much lower offset on the 9"... but my goal is to have driveability, be low, and still kind of flush...

Are you trying to maximize tire width, rim width, or overall track? It's hard to tell you where the limit is without knowing which of those you want to push.

The other option, if you're hooked on these wheels is to have the offset altered by a wheel repair company. I've done this before to fit VW wheels on my old civic. They were a +35, and I had 10mm removed from the hub to effectively create a +45 offset.

Just like spacers add offset, a good machinist, and/or wheel shop could remove some too.

Imho, a 19x9 + 35 would be awesome. If they still cleared the Brembos.

But like you said, it's a pretty big hassle and you will be out of pocket for the modifications.
It would look killer, that is, if it even worked.

im trying to make it look nice and handle decent. ide say 60% aggressive and 40% handling. i know im going the wrong route with 19"s but i want a little more looks than handling.

i currently have 18x8.5 47 offset ssr professors.. dont think they are aggressive enough. i might just go from 245 to 235 to stretch a little and maybe add some spacers.

im not too hooked because these are 2 piece and i really ideally wanted 18" 3 piece 9-9.5" wide.. u are right it would cost a lot to make this possibly work. thanks for your advice on the option of taking it to a wheel shop!
