^ I've never seen that either. I imagine it would probably rub the struts, not to mention it just wouldn't look very good.

I have read a lot through out the forum but I am still unclear what tires I should run or if it will fit. I also would like to lower the car 1.5in, in the future. Any help would be great!
If you want more grip drop down to a 17x8 45mm offset and run a 245/40/17. With 18x8.5 you will still have to run a stock tire size so you wouldn't get anymore grip.

Would a 17x8.5 be even better? Sorry if it's a silly question. I'm still learning.
