Hello all,

Will these fit, or will i need a spacer??

18"x8.5" fronts, and 18"x9.5" rears
ET=25/front, 23/rear(mm)offset

Tires are:
245/40/ZR18 fronts, and 275/35/ZR18 rears

Now I know it should be 235/40/18 front and 265/35/18 rear, but will this work? Also, is that the right height for an 18" wheel? (40 & 35)

Thanks,
Joe

Depends what you mean by "fit".

Bolt them on, and they stick out a bit, and rub. But...

Bolt them on, and they stick out a bit, and rub. But to some people that is "fitting".

Properly, they do not fit. No spacer will help because the wheel is already sticking out too far. Spacers just make it worse. A spacer makes up for a high offset wheel (e.g. ET48) to a low offset application (e.g. ET25), not for a low offset wheel to a high offset application.
