Fitament Help

Hey guys, this is my first post. I hate to post about something there is so much information on, but with all the different options im highly confused when I read up on it. Im currently shopping for my wheels and im looking at Rotiform BLQs which are 18x8.5 ET45 in the front and 18x9.5 ET35 in the back. Everything is stock right now as far as wheels, tires, and suspension goes. I do plan on getting coilovers, I just want to know as of right now what do I need to make those fit without rubbing or camber.

It'll fit stock height but look odd with the offset in the rear. Monster truck looking almost.

Will it look odd because of them sticking out? I want to try and get the widest look I can without rubbing. I only plan to lower the car if the wider stance allows it.

Lower the car first, then decide the wheel fitment/setup

I'm fine with not lowering the car if I can get wide wheels and tires to work and then just add fenders, that's why I was going to lower it second if there was any room for it.

It's going to look hideous with 8.5" & 9.5" wheels at stock height

There's a reason why cars running those specs are usually on bags (air ride) and/or super low

What would you recommend to get that wide "Mexiflush" look?

Or ET35 if u want more poke... also depends on what tires u are running AND backspacing. Roti's are pretty common so Im sure some one with that similar set up might B able to post some pics for U..

Good luck man! Hope it turns out in your favour and you get the look you want.

^^^^ this... listen to the experience on this forum. Staggered look is more look over function if you're running wide rears.. will look comical without the right suspension
