      Picking up a set of wheels pretty soon and curious to see if they will fit...

      18x8 et35 audi pattern. Going to run 5x100-5x112 15mm adapters.. Which should give me a final of et20 all the way around.. Is that going to look like total ass or? I really want to run these wheels but them starting with et35 offset its not giving me much of an option.. Thanks Guys

      yes, you will have about 12mm less poke than that picture up front. i posted that photo as a reference for how your rear wheels would sit

      that will work, you could even go with a 20mm adapter up front if you wanted to. this would be exactly what your fronts would look like with a 20mm:


      and your rears with a 20mm would poke 5mm less than this photo:


      so you'll be fine running 15-20mm adapters with those audi wheels. for tires i'd do 205/40/18 if you havent made up your mind on that already (that's the size in those pictures)

      fronts will sit near flush, just a tiny bit of poke. rears will poke a bit more but it's definitely manageable. may want to consider going down to a 215/40 for the 18x9's

      THIS is what your rears will look like:

      for fronts to be flush with the 17x8, look into something around a final offset of 29. give or take a few mm won't make a huge difference, so a nice round number of 30 would be good.

      for the rears with the 17x9.5, i'd go somewhere around the same final offset of 30 +/-. this will give you a little bit of poke identical to the rear wheels in this photo: (you can go with a higher or lower offset if you'd like depending on how you want them to sit)

      since you said you were getting CCW's and didnt provide me with offsets, i assumed you were going to get them made to the offset you wanted. if you know the offsets of the wheels, post those numbers up and i can let you know what size spacers to get. or if you want to school yourself a bit, take the offset of the wheel and subtract your desired final offset of 30 from it. the result is how big of a spacer you'll want. (ex. wheel offset is 45. so, 45 - 30 = 15mm spacer)

      for tires, 205/45 on the 17x8 and 215/45 on the 17x9.5

      if the 225's are in good, or new, condition you could try to sell them for cash to pickup a pair of 215's instead, but it's really not that crucial. you'll be able to run the 225's if you need to.

      Thanks for the quickness on the reply Clean PG. I think it will be on the money once I get there.. They wheels come with like a 225/40/18 whatever the factory size was but they Pilot Sport PS2's so I may go with "Meaty fitment" for the time being and ride those out.. We will see. Thanks again man

      nothing wrong with that, may as well use up the rubber that's already on there. if you're rubbin pretty bad then you know you can either go with smaller tires or do some minor fender work

      your current wheels and tires should clear the coilovers just fine, wont need to get spacers

      Im thinking a roll for sure and maybe a slight pull. I hope to go on air before the end of the year so I dont want to do anything that will be so extreme that it looks goofy air'd out..

      Thanks again man

      Looking at doing wheels 9" all around

      Lemme know if this will work, or if not what spacers will I need?

      Wheel specs are:
      18x9 et 35 all around,

      I have 10mm and 15mm spacers right now and would prefer to use them if possible. Will the fronts clear 18x9 final et 25? I am on streetline coils about 24 ish ftg prob will go lower once i get the wheels. Looking at doing 215/40s all around too.

      Thanks in advance!
