How flat are your rears rolled?? I got mine done today and he gave me a good probably 1/2"+ in space but he was hesistant to do it completely flat and crack the paint... curious how far you went??

thanks bro! heh, i actually rolled the front and rears FLAT to a pinch, with a slight pull in the front.

did the guy do them with a heatgun? paint cracking shouldn't be too big of an issue if done right with a heatgun.

what wheels/specs are you planning on picking up?

I should have the latest version of TXS newest CBE exhaust sometime in April.

I was told that the tips are going to be bigger, less noise while cruising, a quieter idle, and about the same decibels at WOT. No more banging after two years of suffering.

ohhhh... alrite ya the fitment should be roughly the same as the 18x9 +30. you shouldn't have too much of an issue unless you're pretty low. also the 35 sidewall (w/ 245 stretched) on the tires should help with clearance.

if you dont plan on tucking tire, you should be fine. but on the safe side, i'd go back and try and get the rears rolled pretty flat so you can go pretty low

Nothing nearly as special as some of the other wheels in this thread, but it's my first set of after markets. 18x8.5 +48 going to be wrapped in 235/40R18 star specs as soon as my valve stems get in (freaking next Thursday).

Default Fitment Question

Hey guys I have done some searching but seems to get me more confused. I am totally lost when it comes to wheels and tires. I have read about offset making sure I get the correct ratio to not affect suspension parts.

I am looking to get some 18" Grids, but i was wondering how wide? I was hoping to get 8.5 or 9.5 but dont know if i will have rubbing issues or if they will clear struts. Also i cant find the proper offset for a wheel that wide, what is the acceptable range for those widths?

I am running stock struts, and stock suspension. Hoping to get coilovers soon so wanting to know these questions and understand if I will be able to fit them, and if when i get coilovers and go a little lower will i run into problems.


Thanks for any help, sorry for the noob-ness.

^ typically... if you want a 'safer' setup meaning not worry about rubbing issues or suspension clearance, go with the 18x8.5 +44...

but the wheels will kinda look flat, less concaved and meh

18x8.5 +44


but since you have plans for coilovers, might as well go big or go home. you won't be disappointed in the future when you want to run a wider setup and had already made the mistake of already buying a narrow, 'safer' setup. just take the necessary steps in making sure they'll fit without issues (aka rolling you fenders). but then again if you really don't care about looks and are more concerned about running a safer setup, stick to widths 7.5" - 8.5" with atleast a +40 offset.

but dont they look that much better

18x9.5 +38

Thanks alot for the info, I think i may go with the 9.5" and just get the fenders rolled.
Think i will have to do any pulling? And no camber correct?

Depending on the tire size you plan to run, your going to need camber and flat rolling (if not more) to run the 9.5 +38 grids on a narrow body, with an 'appropriate' size tire for that width (255 or wider). You could always stretch some 225's on them and make it take alot less work. There are plenty of guys that have run those exact wheels on the narrow body sedan. Maybe search for them and ask them directly about them.
Did you ever run that setup .clipse?

Me personally, I'd get the 8.5 +44 grids with either 235/40R18 tires or 245/40R18.
The 235's shouldn't need any work to fit, and the 245's would possibly need some. But that's just my own personal tastes

^ i ran 18x9.5 +30 with 235/40 and i'm currently on 18x9 +30 with 225/40. on my BC coils, the fronts are almost maxed (struts almost on CV boot) and the rears are just as low. i rubbed slightly on 18x9.5 +30 with 235/40's, but i've had zero rub with the 18x9 with the 225/40's.

it all depends on how you want to go really. my fenders are rolled flat but only my front fenders are slightly pulled (helps with full lock turning ). as far as camber correction, i don't have a camber kit, LCA's or what have you. just your basic natural camber. have a good reputable alignment shop dial in your alignment numbers.

@Breezio @.clipse

I want to thank you guys for all the info! I am gonna go with the "safer set up"
I am gonna go with 18 x 8.5 +44 and wrap them in Hankook Ventus Evo k1100 235/40/18.

I will also be getting BC coilovers over summer so hopefully new look coming soon.

I thought I remembered you having a pretty 'extreme' setup..
I'm sure you are darn happy with it.

if i could turn back the hands of time, i would've gotten the 'extreme low' BC coils. but then again, my bumper wouldn't be too happy with me, seeing as i already scrape with regular BC BR's going up my driveway
