Wheel fitment question...

So I want to get some 18x8.5 +47. I found a bunch of people running things close to that, but nothing that went in toward the car 11mm like these would. Is there a limitation on inside clearance? BTW, my car is a 2006 Speed6 and will have BC coilovers next week.

Thanks...

Oh yeah, and the tire would likely be a 225/40-18 due to cost savings over the 235/40-18

rolling your rear fenders is all you will need to do.

Turns out all the wheels I have been wanting are not available in the sizes they advertise. I gave up and went for 18x7.5+45 bronze TSW Nurburgrings. Most likely no roll there.

No roll depending on tire size

going to be close, probably would recommend rolling just to be safe. specially if you are slammed.

my rims are the same specs as those and yeah you should roll your rears if you're dropped.

07 6i tungsten grey metallic: clear side markers (purple LEDs), magnaflow catback, full Polk audio sound system, OZ superleggeras (gunmetal), 6000k HID's, badgeless grill, stickerbombed wink mirror, rain guards, red calipers
