Im going to try on my rx7's wheels this weekend, they are 18x8.5 +38. I'll let you know how they fit
Thanks

I don't think I have any choice about the +45 I simply cannot find a +55 rim other than at the dealership for $650 CDN each... which is just a rip off

Not much chance of finding a wrecked N already :)

I don't know if it is available from Canada, but TireRack has some options. Here's the ones that I'm using.

Another possible option...

I'm considering selling my original equipment rims/tires if you are looking for a set of those. I had my winter wheels/tires drop shipped to the dealer before I even picked up the car so they haven't been used. They are just sitting in my basement. I'll be in Buffalo on Sunday for the SCCA autox event at Bills stadium. I autox in Syracuse and Rochester also. Message me if interested.

Those are 18's Wanted to stay with the 19's

I bought the rims and tyres from Tyre rack - pick them up in Ogdensburg NY -- only a 20 minute drive from my house.

Dealer assured me ( for what that is worth ) that the 10mm difference will not matter..

Oops - reading fail on my part, missed the desire to stay on 19s. For what it's worth, I agree that the 10mm delta isn't a big deal. The biggest impact is the change to your scrub radius. My guess is that it is not enough to really feel any difference.

Have you considered using wheel spacers.
This could dramatically open up your options.
Just make sure to go with hubcentric spacers. 67.1mm.
I ran them on my Genesis Coupe summer and winter with no problems.

I’m running 8.5x18 with a 45 mm offset. I think I’m getting a little rubbing with the suspension in normal mode. I went with a 245 tire. With a 235 tire and +45 offset you’d probably be fine.

The N is 55mm offset. Anything more than a 5mm difference +or- will have an impact on handling characteristics due to change in geometry. I personally would stay within the 50-55 range. Wheel width will also be an issue. You can go less offset an fit a wider wheel. But again you mess with the geometry. I may drop to 18x8.5 with a 50mm offset. However the steering feel in this car is godly and rather not lose the rigidity of the larger diameter amd smaller side wall.

Does anyone know the weight of the stock wheel? I'm all for replacing them with an aftermarket wheel but not to save a pound or two.

19's are about 32 lbs and the 18's about 27 lbs.
wow 32lbs for the 19's??? That's significant and upgraded wheels are a must. It will be somewhat problematic to find a 19x8 5x114 with a 50-55mm offset but it can be done.
I believe the OEM wheels are 29lbs. I found a few online but needed to be special order. Alas, I am just going to weight for the Hyundai O.Z. Hypergt wheel which weigh 20lbs 19x8 ET55

Thank you I completely forgot about this! I'll do the same I spent all day trying to find some suitable lightweight replacements and everything was 50mm or lower offset. I wonder if we will be able to order them instead of the OEM wheels or have to purchase separately. Hopefully it'll be a 2020 MY option!
