In Reply to: rear/front tires posted by marc b on April 26, 2000 at 17:56:50:
My first wheels:
Wheels: 18x8 front with +41mm offset and 18x9 rear with 45mm offset. Tires: 225/40/18 and 255/35/18
My second wheels:
Wheels: 18x8 all around with +38mm offset. Tires: 235/40/18
My third wheels:
Wheels: 18x8.5 all around with +44mm offset. Tires: 235/40/18 front and 255/35/18 rear.
However, I do have the rear fenders rolled in order to be able to fit 255/35/18 on 18x9 wheel.
With 18x8.5 in front, I wasn't able to set my camber beyond -2.0 degree. I had to use 5mm spacer.
I would recommend 18x8.5 with +38mm offset all around with 235/40/18 (since you don't have your fenders rolled) with -1.0 degree camber in front and -1.5 degree at the rear. Some shop would roll your fenders for free if you purchase the wheels/tires from them.
Here's an illustration of the 'before' and 'after' rolling your fenders.

I hope this helps. Good luck.
: Without rolling, what are the widest (on 18" rims) tires anyone has run? This is also with the H&R, bilstein lowering (street, not track)...so 1" lower in the back.
: In the front, what is the widest w/o rolling with the above lowering setup and rim size
: how much does it cost to get the fenders rolled?
: what does it look like? (pix)
