      Thank you for responding. I am not sure about these rims. My current rims are 18x9 but these are listed as 18x8. He says the 245/40/18 fit it... which is what I have now.

      Will tires from 9” rims fit 8” rims?!??

      I am trying to just get rims and swap.

      Do you know, since you were kind enough to answer...

      Or anyone?

      I want to jump on these rims if my current tires will fit. HELP!

      Yes, they will fit it will have a beefier look though, in another post you mention going from ET52 to ET48 no issues there either.

      Thank you for responding. I am slowly figuring out what the offset will do.

      The seller of the wheels above got weird. He wanted to meet at a subway and then walk a block to his house where I would pay him and get 5 rims and have to walk back to car with them. Not the best part of town either.

      So I ordered some rims online. If they don’t work out, then I will return them.

      Brake light is being checked Thursday. Its not a broken wire in hatch hinge area or a fuse so we assume the wire broke or cane off at the light.

      The heated seats do work altho they both only get like warm. I am not as concerned about it since it’s super hot now. I just want to drive it
