Is it the same as the sedan? The guide is comprehensive, just want to be sure that I'm not missing anything...

I think we have a little more clearance in the rears but it's minimal. What specs are you looking into?

Probably 18x8 and 18x9, +38 front and rear. Unsure of tire size. It should clear, the back might need a roll, I think.

I'm with sway, I think our fronts are dead on. The rears we prolly have a couple more mm based on the same set of wheels from sedan to SportX and vice-versa. Around 5mm I would say.

i was wondering if what is the widest tire the stock rear wheels can handle. I read on a site that 255/40 can fit our 7.5 rear wheels. what is the widest anyone has put on their stock wheels.

Check on the tire MFG website, it will tell you the rim width range for each tire size. I don't think it looks good personally to put a too big tire on a wheel, looks "bulgy" to me.

I'm planning on going with 18x9.5 Offset 30 / Varrstoen ES1 with 5mm spacers where needed.

I will let you know if I needed to do any modifications to get them to fit right.t

I am running 18x8.5 +30 18x10 +40 with 10mm spacers front and rear. I need to roll and pull front and back. I am running a 215/35 up front and 225/40 in the rear.
