Wouldn't it have been cheaper to be equally less agressive, minus the flares for the same effect?

I don't have that mant horsepowers to need, so I'm unaware. 315/30 maybe?

Run a 18x11 with an offset around +10. Then run a 295/30r18. That's what I would do.

Byers,

Welcome to the forum. Try reading and researching this thread
http://forums.nasioc.com/forums/show....php?t=2448193 and you will find all your answers in there.

The new wheels you're looking at look good.

Majority of Karlton flared members will tell you that 18x10.5 +20ish is going to be the minimum width and offset, ideally you want +15 - +0. These flares can accomodate 18x10-18x12.

not bothered by cost, why did you buy the cheapest wheels possible?

you'll need a lower offset.

"stance" and flares doesn't really go together. at least the commonly accepted definition of stance.

Xxr are just very cheap quality. It's a lot of money to spend to go cheap on the wheeels is what he is saying.

Yeah America is the wild west of car culture. HIDs in reflector housing or driving a monster truck on the street... We will be damned if anyone is gonna tell us what to do haha. That's most peoples attitudes anyway. I miss living in Germany the TüV kept most of the riff raff from modding cars.
