Default Need Wheel and Tire help!

Ok, so I have a STOCK 2011 OBS. I am looking at getting a set of 18 inch XXR 527's or XXR 530"s.

I have no idea what width rims and what size tire I can run on my stock car. I am looking to go as wide as possible, not a stretched tire, with a decent offset, with out any fitment issues as i will not be doing any fender mods.

Any help on figuring out what all I can run would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks Matt

I have read through the stickies at the top, i could not find anything that directly answers my questions.
Its possible i missed it but i could not find something saying what the widest rim my car can handle stock.

as someone who has replied in those threads more than any other member, I can tell you for a fact that is not possible.

you have such limited options as you state no fender mods, no stretched tires.

stick to stock or as close to it as possible.
