Those are nice, but I would need a wide body kit to be able to fit them.
Although that is a good idea Axis has with those Maxis lip wheels.

Iforged
Custom offsets
Custom widths

There go your lips.
Here is an example on an audi

I know normally FWD/AWD...but if I remember right, this is FWD



I know I saw some wheels on a FWD Audi somewhere else that were staggered yet the same width front and rear (18x8)......don't remember if it was Axis or someone else

Iforged are sweet but those wheels would be worth more than the Legend
I might wait and see if Axis comes out with any better designs that feature the Maxis lip.
The other thing I was thinking about was:
Since I am gonna get some rust work done on the fenders, I could possibly cut the original fenders and weld new ones that are more flared in the back, giving me say another inch to work with.

Good idea..just mock it up first so you can make sure it looks right....someone should try to photoshop that.

Wait, wait.

I've got 18x8 225/40 wheels and tires and my wheels are flush in front and in about an inch in the rear and they never rub.

I know 225 won't rub, but I plan on going 245 or greater.

for all that POWA under your hood?

all you're doing is adding weight, and increasing grip (when a high quality 225 width will do the same amount of good with less weight)

What's the offset of your wheels for 18x8 that are flushed with the fenders.
