    You would need to change the hood too or you're going to have gaps.

    also 18x8, +35 Offset, 225/40/18 Front Tires, 235/40/18 Rear Tires. is this too wide? i heard that our best offset would be between 40-50?

    I'm gonna say probably not. The 3G TL seats are wider, plus you're going to have no way to hook up the side airbags, electric lumbar, seat heaters or electric seat adjusters.

    Absolutely. You'll just need to trim the rear bumper tab roll the rear fender if you're really slammed. You'll need to keep some camber most likely. Up front you'll be fine.

    just get the same width tires. You're not doing anything but making it harder on yourself by getting 225's and 235's. Get 225/40/18 all arund and call it a day. And 18x8 +35 is less far out than the 17x9 +45 you were talkin about so you'd definitely be good.





    Here, use this:

    Yes but you need the 01 coupe hood also to eliminate the gap left by the coupe bumper.
