Can you post up more pics? 8.5+44 non staggard? Would like to see fitment.
I'm thinking about putting on 18x9.5+42 :think: You think there's 1/2 an inch of space available?
Also, I wanna run 245/40 tires so it stretches a little.

18X9.5 +42 w/245/40 oh I don't know if you'll have 1/2 inch space to play with! But +42 offset is OK and if you are running 18's make sure you check what 18 inch wheels fits in you car.

google "wheel and tire fitment calculator" and enter the specific measurements to give more lf an idea.

I have 18x8 +35 enkie rpf1 w/toyo proxes r888 235/40 for the drag strip. The front one doesn't clear the calipers in circumference. I had to shave shave or grind my calipers down to fit it. And also its hanging outside more than its supposed too. As far as the rear, I scrape the fenders when I have a passenger in the back, I am lowered on H&R springs.

I'm thinking about the Work M.C.O. in red 18x9.5+42 because it has a more concave face than 8.5+50, looking to slap on 245/40 PSS. I want to lower on H&R springs as well, I dont want to rub.

You think that'll work? 8+35 is 12mm less extended compared to 9.5+42, how come that rubs but 9.5 doesnt?

Can you post a few extra pics? I want to see how the spec I want would look on the car. :)

THANKS!!
