8.5 Wide Rim??

I think I found my the rims I want. Here are the specs.

Rims = 8x8.5J +40 offset all around 5H 114.3

Tires = Dunlop LM701 Tires 235/40-18

Would these rims fit well on a 97 RL?

Should it be 45 offset?

Will they rub?

Should he tires be 45 series? I want them as thick as possible to fill up the gap and to deal with the potholes?

If you have rims on your car let me know if they rub or not. I'm not dropping my car.

check out my sizing...I rolled the rear fenders and also adjusted the rear camber back to at most -1 deg camber. Doesnt rub after rolling the fenders.

The fronts I still need front camber adjustment because I have been rolling around with -3.5 deg camber and my tires took a huge hit.

You will have more issues that I had because your wheels will stick out 9.35mm to the fenders (compared to my setup) but only 3.35mm inward (but that is completely tolerable).

Just remember my car at its lowest was 4 inches or so lower than stock, but I raised it up a little right now. If you car is stock height, I doubt youll have issues.
