Thinking of going with the Titan 7 wheels for my autocross track tires and wheels. The wheel sizes are 19x9 ET48 and 19x10 ET35

My only concern is the front wheel fitment and how much camber you have to run to prevent rubbing and what size tires would work. Seems the fitment is pretty aggressive. The goal would be to run a min of 245 but prefer 255.

I will be installing Ohlin Road and Track suspension and want to run an alignment that is a good compromise between street and and Autocross/open track. Figuring -1.5 to -2 degrees camber. I dont mind a bit extra wear, but I dont want the car to have poor manners on the street.

Thoughts?

Negative 2 degrees all around works well. You should be able to get close without upgrading the LCAs.

We have the Titan7s in 18" or 19":

19x9 with a 48 offset with a 245 will fit no problem, 255 may need a little more camber. The 19x10 et35 will fit with a 275.

I run 255/285 on my 987 track car with -3 all around. It can be a little darty on rutted streets but a little less camber help iron that out.

For Ohlins we have off the shelf kits and custom kits for track use:

Let me know if you have any questions about the wheels or suspension.

Josh, thank you very much for the info, greatly appreciated. When you state with 255's you may need a little more camber, was that a little more than 2 degrees or up to 2 degrees?

Im trying to avoid the requirement of having to do lower control arms or upper mounts to run the tires and wheels initially as I want to do this in stages.

I see they have 19s in 11" wide for the 911. The offset seems to be within a few mm of what people report works with 20x11 on the 718. I've seen the pics and the suspension is close to the inner lip, but cant tell if it would be an issue. Has anyone tried that combo?

You'll need more like -2.5 for the 255s.

10" wheel is plenty wide for a 275 on the rear. We haven't run an 11" on the 718 so I can't really comment on how well it will work..

keep in mind LCAs move the strut out from the bottom.
They don't help much with clearance at the top of the wheel arch.
