19" wheels on the EOS
I have fitted 19" wheels to the rear of my EOS. Now don't shoot me down but I love the larger rear wheel look (Yes, I know on a FWD). Anyhow, I got some Moda wheels from Tirerack.com, a very useful & helpful site. 18 x 8 x 45 for the front and 19 x 8.5 x 45 for the rear. I would have liked a larger offset for the rear, but couldn't find any. The fronts were a doddle (OE size & offset), but I also wanted wider tyres on the rear, and the EOS rear suspension puts the OE wheels right out at the limit. And I also wanted to lower the car and try to get the "Bum up in the air" look out of it. Lowering turns the rear camber to junk. The OE rear camber is -1.6 deg. This goes to in excess of 3 degrees neg when you try to lower it. being a bloke who loves a challenge, several suspension components and lots of cash later, I have managed to get 255/35/19s under the rear with suitable camber and lowered 40 mm (rear). With the front lowered 25 mm it looks great (well I think so anyway). And it rides well.
If anyone wants more details on the rear susp mods, please let me know.
