so i recently picked up some wicked cheap wheels off my mate. so i got em all set to put on the car, btw they are 18x8 and 18x9 im not too sure on the offset i think it was 30 form my knowledge. so i put all four on and the car doesn't move. seems the rear are scraping the callipers.

My tyre setup is basic no stretching just normal. the fronts go on easy 235-40-18 and rears are 245-40-18.

So i was wondering if anyone has pulled this off. I know ive got to get a pair of spacers, was considering these:

Also i need to flare out my guards,but before i invest and potentially get more disappointed i just wanted to clear this doubt.

Will this work?

Input would be great guys. cheers.

should sfind out the offset. but you will most def, need spacers in the rears.
im running 17x8 +45(235/45) and 17x9 +45(255/40)
so issues at all, hadd the rears rolled when i lowered the car for peace of mind.
it would be safer to run a 225 at the front though. I will be changing my fronts when i have the funds.

Im running 18x8/9 at +35, no clearance issues here, nothing rolled.

Its more to do with the design of the wheel rather than the offset. Concave wheels will give more brake clearance than dish type.

I've got 17 x 8's with a + 40 offset and I've got no problems whatsoever.
Caliper clearance is better than my standard wheels, I don't have spacers, my guards aren't rolled and there's no rubbing on anything.
I have 215's stretched on, but that will only effect rubbing.

dish or not doesn't really matter. find out the offset figures (should be a sticker on the back of the wheel or will be a ETXX. e.g. ET22 = +22 offset). Tyre wise personally I wouldn't run anything that wide as depending on offset of the wheel it can hinder guard/suspension clearance issues. Also having a wider tyre doesn't necessarily mean more grip it can also make your steering a lot heavier.

hey thanks for the reply. i did check em and they are +45 all around. So im thinking with 15mm spacer i should be able to clear the callipers?

What tyre setup would you personally go with ??

Coincidentally I just removed a pair of 15mm bolt on's from my car as I changed wheels - $80 posted if you need them!

Tyre setup depends on use of the car.. a 215/40 front, 225/40 or 235/40 rear would be my personal choice.
