on your car, don't go much more than 18x8.5", with no less than a 42 offset. It will rub a bit, but it's as big and wide as you'll want to go.

19" will fit, but the cost of tires is high.

Ditto to above, I find an 18x8 or 17x8 with a 45 offset is pretty good...a nice 245 tire will fill it out very nicely.

this wasn't me who posted in this... my boss is a dick... thanks for the snip for whatever he said...

and i think if you want to run 245+ tires you gotta roll the fenders...

17x8 with a 42-45mm offset and a nice tire looks badass.

Stock height right now and every thing clears fine, the Falkens are a 235 but are about as wide as some other brands in 245...
