    My tires eat up the rear tip of the bumper so i'm going just let it eat it up then switch to 225/35. Its fender rolled and rim still pokes with oem arms.
    Some will like it, some will hate it. To each of our own stylin.

    I guess I should of got xxr/sportmaxx with +35 :bash:

    Yeah, it "fits." But if it's chipping off bumpers, fenders, quarter panels or other **** .. then you should consider getting wheels with a smaller width.

    But it's your car. Do you.

    width is really high, but the offset is not low enough to achieve the huge lip look. Unless your goal to only to have the stretched tire look.

    Think about going 18x9, or 18.9.5 with +25 offset to have a huge lip/concave and still have a decent fitment without too much poke

    My car just needs more negative camber . The lip doesn't look too deep because of the style of the wheels. Im running project kics R40 lug nuts and it just sinks them in. We decided not to roll it anymore now. We're thinking of cutting and extend the fenders, trying to run more positive camber. Maybe I should make a thread on my car for opinions, comments, criticisim, etc etc

    anymore negative camber, and the wheels would be rubbing the rear struts!
