The rims are 19x8 w/40mm offset.

I haven't ever seen Motegi's on a TSX before.

The tires rubbed a bit so I stiffened the suspension and it got worse so I softenned the suspension and it got better....go fiure? Kinda backwards f you ask me.

I like the way the car looks and sits, but would suggest like a 42-45mm offset to avoid any rubbing. I can deal with it because I am very happy with the look.

did u get a camber kit for the rear.
I have a camber kit for it, but haven't put it on yet. Due to my low (40mm) wheel offset I rubb the fenders a little. If I camber it, it will bring the top of the tire out even more to correct it, thus causing even more rubbing. So untill I get the ride height corrected or roll the fenders a little bit I shouldn't camber the rear. The front doesn't need it, the rear does!

Well I ordered 19's...they say 19....I asked for 235/35/19 from Discount Tire, the receipt says they're 19's and for some silly reason it also says 235/35/19 on the tire ....but hey...who am I? Just the guy that researched wheels for a few weeks before dropping a couple of grand on them.

Yes! I am 100% sure they are 19's. 19x8 40mm offset

No offense taken:)

I have negative camber issues. I just haven't put the camber kit on yet. Does your 40mm offset stickout or is it flush with the fender?

I like the lip on those wheels, Your camber dont seem to be that much off, My camber is really off on my car. I really do need a camber kit badly.

The teins are pretty similar to stock when set softest. I had them set half way between hardest and softest and it was pretty stiff. Now I have it set about 4/5 the way to softest and it's good for me.

The rims were about $780 shipped from an ebay vendor. The Tire ran about $930 after taxes with new lugs, tire protection package, and 2 different sets of wheel locks(2 on each wheel). So figure a good 17-1800......well worth it to me. I love this car!
