The car will be on the ground and all the negative camber you can do. Then pull the fenders and grind away everything inside the fenders.

You need almost an inch at the rear fender to make those fit.....

The 30's will be easier. They will need a good roll and a bit of camber but they will fit fairly easily

The 22's you will need more work

You can get the 30's to fit with a roll and some camber easy enough.

The 38's with 245 tires will likely fit without much work at all....265 or 275's will likely need a bit of a roll

I'm stuck on going with 18s or 19s. I figure if I go 19s I have to go for a higher offset, I'm not sure though, can I do 19s et 30??

If your offset gets smaller it gets more difficult to get them to fit. Going to a 19 makes them harder to fit as well...so a bit higher offset will fit easier....so closer to 40 in a 9.5

So im trying to achieve the flushed look on my 8 and i was wondering if yall can give me some insight on how to achieve that or if even possible with my current wheels. Im giessing ill need spacers but anyway my wheel specs are 18x8.75 +36 rear and 18x8.75 +22 front. My current tires are sized 235/40/18 front and back, theyre about to get replaced so if theres any suggestions as to going with another size please do so. I have coilovers on the way fyi. Thanks for any input

Why the different offsets?

The rears should fit no problem, the fronts should as well with that sized tires...but the rears will be inset more than the front.....basically by about 1/2 inch.

Likely a big roll and a 1/2 inch spacer on the rear should fit and make the front and back the same

Back when i had zero knowledge of fitment i let a shop take care of it and they ordered my wheels with those specs and i regretted it ever since. I had 8mm spacers in the rear and they were flushed nicely but i removed them because the lug nuts were barely grabbing onto the thread, will i have this issue with a 1/2 inch spacer?

Yea. That shop didn't know wtf it was doing if you're right. Lower offset in the front? You sure you don't have it backwards?

Since 1/2 " is amlost 13mm you will have more issues than 8 😎

Like J said. ..try them on the other way. ..they likely will look ok even without spacers

Hey guys, so I'm aware that people have been able to run an 18x9.5 wheel with a 265/35 tire all around, such as J8635621. I have been searching and just saw that he said some work needed to be done. Just curious if this means fender roll, fender pull or some other magic to get them to fit. Any info helps

I am lowered about an inch btw.

Work Emotion CR Kiwami (deep Concave Face) 18x9.5 +30 or +38? 265/35/18 all around. Will roll all fenders and have BC racing coilovers.

What are some possible issues?

Thanks

Honestly offset would be whatever works best, not going for style points so I guess like +38-50? Tires would be Potenza RE-11's.

So I don't know anything about fitment so here I am...
Looking at two different setups
18x8.5 +45 offset front and rear
or 18x9.5 +38 offset front and rear
Car is lowered on pss9 coils and fenders are already rolled somewhat. Any help would be much appreciated.

You shouldn't have any problems with either of these. The 9.5 +38 will fill the arches better.

I'm testing to see if I understood correctly, so here is my idea;

255/40R18 pilot super sports on 18x9 wheels. Stock suspension; mildly open to the idea of adjustable coilovers for drop during summer and up for winter. Goal offset would be to be as 'flush' as reasonably possible without the fender rolling at let's say an assumed maximum of a 2" drop.

My guess would lead me to believe somewhere between +36-45mm offset.

Thanks ahead of time for any corrections and guidance
