I know 16x8 with a 10 offset (Non-SHP Rears) CAN be ran on all 4 corners.... but I have seen very few pictures to reference, and most people who have 16x9-10 square are running skinny tires, really low, and are "tucking" their wheels. I love the look of the deep-set 16x8 but really want a "meaty" square tire setup on my car some day.

Hypothetically, do you think you could run 16x8s square with 245/45s or so on the front and rear? Not sure if it would look good or just poke out way to far. I'm sure someone with a 16x8 on a 245/45 or 245/50 on the rear has stuck one of their rear tires up front for fun - if you have could you post a pic or tell me what the situation is up there? Always wondered.. if it looks cool I may do it to mine after I get it on the road.

I'm running 16x8 -10 wheels on all four corners and I can tell you that with 225/50/16 it fits on all four corners. My car isn't slammed either. A couple notes though, my situation is unique because my car started out as a narrowbody and I'm also running 25mm spacers on all four corners.

But again, I can say that the tire size I am running will fit under a widebody. I've never tried 245 tires.

I am running SHP wheels with 25mm (1in) spacer on all 4 corners.  So effectively, i am running 16x8 w/ -7 offset on the front with 225 tires and 16x9 w/ -25 offset on the rear with 245 tires.  With rolled fenders, I have no fitment issues.

Comparing these specs on willtheyfit.com, you should be able to fit 16x9 w/0 offset on the front with a 245.  19ctubo is running a 16x9 up front on his 1JZ car if i remember correctly.

Sweet pics guys! So it looks like 225s fit without an issue but looks like 245s might be pushing it...

Again would love to see someone with 245s on the front! I may end up with 225s front and 245s rear but both on a 16x8 if that seems to clear everything better. 1" spacer in the rear looks perfect bha280!

I have 16x9s up front and if I had 245s theyd rub like crazy. I run 225/50s on all 4 of my 9s and its barely stretching the tires. Im also lowered on d2s with fenders rolled, those 225/50s rubbed on one side in the front til I got happy with a mallet.

I run stock shp tire sizes, 8"rears up front and 9" in the back with a 1" spacer. i also have D2's with minimal camber set, atleast not enough to camber wear tires but to help in the corners. and no it doesn't rub.
