a couple of questions

18x7.5 +48 offset all around?
or
18x8 +48 offset all round?

which would be better? I don't want any rubbing issues.

tires will be 225/40/18
dropped on S-Techs W/Bilstein shocks.

also, would the SF Winning clear the front brake calipers ok? or would I have to do some mods?

i have the winnings.
clear stock brakes just fine, need small spacer for LMS BBK.
i run 19x8 (+42) 225 and 19x8.5 (+48) 245.
dumped on JIC FLT-A2s.
the +48 should be fine all around.
i shaved my rear fenders and rolled the fronts.
rub rarely.
let me know if you have more questions.

not Volks but SSR comps and they come in the same exact offset.
i think that is helpful, but he specifically wants to know if the spoke style/ pattern will clear. each wheel is different. good info tho.

Thanks for the info phil!

I want the 19's..but was afraid that +42 offset in the front would be too much and cause rubbing. I don't want to do fender mods.

+rep for both of you! :approve:

depending on you drop, you wont need to roll the fronts.
im slammed and there isnt much to roll in the front.
+42 in the front is totally do-able.
only rub on HARD turning (my car bounces sometimes because i run it on stiffest).

+48 in the rear had some clearance, never rubber before i got them shaved (but i wasnt slammed yet, had a little negative camber). i run negative camber now with shaved rears.
