You didn't even tell us what "wide body" you are looking at, how do you expect us to give you an answer.

What tire?

What suspension mods?

What "widebody?"

I would stick to making this in Forza and not destroy a car for it.

Karltons will make them sink in a little bit but a spacer will help

This is a buddy's 10 +18 with a 15mm on the rear and a 285/30 hankook

Karlton flares mean the car is widebody now?

And you should post the full tire specs you plan on running, because you didn't tell us your sidewall size.

You'll be cutting much more than normal. The tallest tire you can run without issues is 25.7".

285/30/18 works at 24.8"

295/30/18 is a really good size for the Karlton Flares, although it's a pinch on a 10" wheel.
