I got the 235's instead of the 245's so I'll let y'all know how they fit and post pics. The only reason to roll fenders is if the car is lowered and I don't like the typical lowered ride quality (or lack thereof) or the look of a seriously lowered car. I've seen 225's on an 8.5'' wheel and can't stand that look so I couldn't do it. At most, the car will be lowered about 3/4 of an inch...that's it. I like my sanity and having to think about traversing speed bumps certainly won't help. So when I asked if they'd fit, I was asking with a "close to stock height" in mind. Thanks for the response!!

Re: Wheel Fitment Thread

I could be the new owner of 17x7 +38 set of wheels. I used to have 17s before but didnt pay much attention to the offset. Just as a general question...the lower the offset the further they get to being herraflush?

Yes, most "Joe Schmoe" 17x7 wheels are +40 offset or somewhere along the lines. So a +38 won't make much of a difference at all.

Depends on wheel width. Everything factors in, it involves a lot more than just the offset of the rim.

Re: Wheel Fitment Thread

O.k, so it's official...the XXR502's (18x8.5's +35mm) DON'T fit! My car is at stock height. You can see how they stick out about an inch outside the fender.

That's why you gotta lower your car so it'll tuck right in

Are you a noob or something? It does fit. Wait til you lower it then the wheels will tuck in.

I fit a 17x9 + 29 and it fit real nice.

Also, what size tire are you running? It looks kinda fat
