Hello everyone,
Looking to install 18 wheels, However they have a 40mm offset.It looks like they stick out just a bit from the fender.They have enough clearance on the strut side. Does anyone know if this will work?? I already purchase the wheels and Im sort of stuck with them now. Has any body tried this set up before?? Is it safe to do a 40mm offset on our cars ??let me know. Thanks!!

Hi! May I ask what the width of your wheels are? ET40 should be okay, especially if you use 225/40/R18 tires. A number of members here run wide wheels with more aggressive offsets without much problems (some would need to roll the fenders). You should be okay. HTH.

8 or 8.5 width with +40 should be fine. Our cars show you can go down to a +32 and still fit.

The wheels are 8x18 like I said before with a 40mm offset. It looks like it may look funny with the wheel sticking out of the fender a bit.Also I was wondering if that would damage the bearings?? Thanks again for your help.
