What is the offset? I have 18X7.5 w/48mm offset and my 225/40/18 tires don't rub at all even with a load. I'm also at about a 1 1/2" drop in the front, a little less in the rear(prodrives springs). Almost forgot , I have a sedan -James

I have a sedan too, I'm not sure of the offset, I know they have two different offsets, it is probably the offset that Volk recommened to the shop I bought them from.
