Question Offset for 18x8.5

Hello, everyone. First of all, I really hate posting threads like this because they always yield "Did you try searching?" responses.

I've been looking around at different threads trying to get an idea for what people are running for 18s. I'm just curious what width I could run and with what offset.

I'm looking at Gram Lights 57dr 18x8.5 and it comes with a +38 offset. Currently I am on Tein S-tech springs.


Based on my calculations, it should fit. Will probably want a fender roll though.

I'm confusing myself thinking about all this. Please help! Haha

Sold my 6. Still have some parts available for sale. Check my started threads or the classifieds to find them!

That offset will fit great with a flat roll on the rear fenders (roll ALL the way down the full length of the fenders and get them as flat as possible). Should look nice with a 235/40 with a proper roll and spec-ish camber settings.

BTW gorgeous wheels.

The more offset you have the less roll you'll need. These are 18x8.5, +50 on a 2003 Mazda6.





As you can see from the second pic, the fenders had not been rolled yet.

I knew @Drizzoh would have a proper answer for you. @flipper66 is a wheel guru too.
FWIW my 18x8 +50 required no roll whatsoever on H&R's. 225/40's

Yep that will look great like @Drizzoh said as long as you roll the rears.
