But if you choose to keep the wheels...you need spacers and extended studs dude.
To do it properly and squared up...you need 18x10.5 or even 18x11 nothing higher then a +25 offset and no spacer is needed then. Tires - 305/30's or 315/30's (extreme but Gangster!!!)

Good luck

Don't get xxr's. Mainly because they are xxr's. I couldn't imagine spending all that cash on fancy paint and putting trash wheels on my car but to each their own I guess

a 15 mil spacers would put those at the same visual offset as a 18x10.5 +15. you'll need extended studs for that much spacer though.

if you like the wheels and don't plan on tracking those little tires, i say go for it.

Hi guys, what are you running in terms of tires? Any recommendations or advice? Looking at grabbing some 295/30/18 Advan AD08 but figured I’d ask and see if anyone had any input first. Car is mostly a weekend warrior. Looking forward to joining you all in super wide wheel and tire land

Great tires! I personally wouldn't daily them due to the price point but definitely track the fug out of them
