if you have 18x7.5's at least a +45 offset would be recommended. sedans have different wheel wells than coupes, so if you have a sedan, try to get a higher offset if possible.

i know voxx, konig, 5zigen, racing hart, they all sell high offset wheels in these sizes. (voxx does a +50 offset with an 18x8)

for a 7.5 wheel, a 225 tire works, and looks cooler, but businesses will recommend a 215 width tire...either one will work...225 width is just alot more common

I am thinking of 18 by 7.5 in front with the normal 51 offset and the 18 by 8 in the back with a 45 offset.

That set up is going to be a pain when you have to rotate your tires...

Cool



These are the rims i am having, The rubbing on the wheels are very intense on the rears, not so much on the front. What other options is available to stop the rubbing? Also i do not plan on dropping the car at all, just getting new eibach springs, and koni shocks. all around.

HEre are the mods of the rims currently on the g2

Axis Spider 18's!


Let me know if anyon can help me tuck in the front wheels there popping out likes it hot.

Run negative camber and agressivly rotate your tires or replace them every year. that should make them tuck.

I think he means to rotate the fronts to the rear and the rears to the front. This way you increase the life span of the tires. I recommends doing this at the 15k to 16k mark which equates to a year for most.

I DONT GET IT, WHAT EXACTLY IS OFFSET?? WHATS A HUB BORE?? ARE YOU TALKING ABOUT DISTANCE UP AND DOWN OR LEFT AND RIGHT?? ALSO, YOU SAID IF YOU HAVE 18 X 7.5 WHEELS HAVE AN ATLEAST 42 OFFSET , AND THAT A HIGHER OFFSET IS BETTER RIGHT? SO WHY WOULD YOU GET 18 X 7.5 WHEELS WITH A 45 OFFSET IN THE FRONT AND 18 X 8 WITH A 42 OFFSET IN THE BACK?? THE WIDER THE TIRES, THEN SHOULDNT THEY HAVE A HIGHER OFFSET??? FOR EXAMPLE THE 18 X 8'S SHOULD HAVA HIGHER OFFSET THAN THE 18X7.5'S? I HAVE A 95 COUPE AND I WANTD TO HAVE EITHER 18'S OR 19'S.

My Oct1993 RHD (Thailand) sedan used to roll on 18x8 ET+38 wheel, with 225/40ZR18 tires. However, rear fenders are folded up to avoid the shape edges inside.
I notice the offset just a bit too much for the car even with just +38mm offset. the wheel track had been modified and widen, which I wonder if you guys ever experience handling difficulty or high gas mileage on your 18"?

I'm now running with the original tire fitment is 205/60R15 with modest spec stock rims (15x6.5). They are better for rainy season coming in a month. But the improved mileage and handling make it hard for me to go back to 18", but looking for lighter wheel, could inch-down to 17".


Offset +38 with lip


Stock suspension with 18"

Re: from Montreal canada

I had the same question as him, but living in a cold country with snow and all, i was wondering...

2 questions:

1. are air pneumatic set (shocks, springs whatever it changes) good in cold weather?

2. which are the best sets non air, so regular as mention above by your guys best in cold weather.
We do get thoses minus 30 celcius and wind and rust and salt and snow and all the bad.

thx for your time and answer
