Yeah, think that pretty much sold me on 245/40R18's when the time comes... Unless of course I can get away with 255/35's with minimal fender work..

I think I'm just going to go for the 245/40/18 instead of the 235/40/18 tires; the 245s look too damn nice. I can deal with some rubbing for a while before I get rolled.

[quote=jayson2k2;36401858]here are some older random pics from the past summer. im running 18x9.5 +38 grids with bc racing coils, all fenders rolled w/ slight pull, and 5mm spacers for the front to clear brembos.

u can see the tires a little better in these pics.

hella clean man... did you do the brembo swap yourself and im thininking of going wingless or doing something like the rexpeed spoiler custom fab'd of course

Probably going to depend on tires and how low you go on those coilovers.

Yea.
I dont really see why not.
People Fit 18x9.5 Linea corse lemans with an 30 offset on their hatches.

I would probably slap on some 235's.
small chance of 225's.

I'm about to pick up the new Enkei Raijins, 18x8 +45 with 235/40R18 rubber and Swift springs all in 1 shot. I'm lining up the purchase with my 30,000 mile maintenance, and if a roll is needed, just get it done at the same shop.

Think I will? I'll put up pictures once it's done. I just can't for the life of me decide on a color. Some days I'm black, other days I'm silver. On a DGM hatch, both have their moments.

Do you have any pictures of an 08-2010 on 18x9.5 +30 LeMans? I'm interested to see what that looks like.

You definitely won't have to get a roll. I have springs that drop me the same amount as the Swifts and I have 18x8.5 +44 wheels with 225/40/18 tires and there's a ton of room; I'm going to switch up to 245/40 soon and I'll probably need a rear roll at that point.

Wow, our rides are very similar. I have 17x8 DR-38's that look very similar to your wheels. I was told they were +47 offset but when I got them they said et40 stamped on the wheel.

My roof rack is in the mail but I am getting OEM bars and a INNO fairing

Nice, that's the exact setup I'll be running; good to know I won't need a roll. Thanks for the pics.

Hey guys, I've got an 08 with stock suspension. I'm not looking to go crazy with a super aggressive fitment. What wheel/tire size would funtion the best without having to roll my fenders and still look good?

^aggressive wheel/tire fitment does not go hand in hand with stock suspension.

might as well post this here as well:

so I'm assuming you have stock suspension? Would I be fine with 18x8? what about 18x8.5. I know I'd have to roll for 18x9 but haven't found anything about narrower wheels.

I do have stock suspension. I can't speak to the 18's. I was basing my post off of your original comments about a relatively conservative fitment.
