8.5 +30 would be semi flush, depending on the type of tire you were running, if you wanted to run a 235 in the rear it'd probably be flush-er. I'd run a 215 up front if you don't want to run into rubbing issues, but you may need to do a roll if you run a wider tire then a 225 in the rear.

will i need to roll my fenders? im currently dropped on Tein Super Streets
Yeah, run a 215 up front with a slight roll and you should be good, the 18x10, you will need to roll you fenders flat and even pull/flare them a good bit along with running stretched tire.

18x8.5 +40 you'll be good with a 225 all around and shouldn't rub and if you do it will be minor, a roll would take care of all that.

I can't provide much info on the 19's but you will probably need to do a roll with them.

if you want to be on the super safe side you can roll all your fenders but this probably is not needed on stock ride height,

i'd probably run the recommended size of a 225/40 or you can do a minor stretch (if any) with a 215/40 do be REALLY safe.

on a 225/40 yes, that would be your best bet.

considering getting CCW Classics and I am having a helluva time understanding what is the most useful offset/tire size assuming 18x8(.5)x 18x9.5(10) and assuming I have Vertex/Chargespeed front fenders (+20mm somewhat debatable but whatever). DAILY DRIVEN mind you please.

I read and read about hella(insert clever whatever) and as dope as I think it is, it's just not my goal right now, need usable/traction with relatively even wear (currently on 3deg in front and 2deg in back and tired of chewing up tires).

would be much appreciative of any suggestions, I am finally painting the car again and got a fresh Visa with some wheels/tires written all over it.....

paypal the person that helps the most enough for a Fat Tire or a Terrapin of their choice....seriously

THANKS!!!

What size tires do you want to run?

You could probably do a 18x9 +35 with a 255/35/18 especially with Vertex Fenders.

You could do a 18x10.5 +45 with a 275/35/18 I think. TecKIs300 was running a similar setup actually.

Well, I searched for his thread

Brushed CCW's finally mounted! Pics on Page 4

He is on stock fenders so you'll have a little room up front. But be careful with the Vertex fenders since they are fiberglass.

18x9" +38 Fronts with 255/35/18
18x10.5" +48 Rears with 265/35/18. Still have room for a 285/30/18

Teaser pic
I would pretty much copy that setup It looks great.


And get some Figs Mega Arms so you can dial in your alignment. Possibly the Toe links too. And maybe some upper A arms. Figs has some he is working on, or Cusco's IF you can find a set since they are discontinued.

10-4, I has Cusco front upper A arms sir .
snowcones chance in hell I could run at least a 40? Bit of a stretch is ok, and don't mind at all raising up just a bit...would have to when I put kit on anyway...more interested in making them fit and get best traction/life.
