tires? Not sure about offset, but will I be ok? I don't want to deal with spacers.

Will they really? Because of the tire width or rims being 8"? Are we talking rubbing if turning full lock?

I'd appreciate those with pegs to add in...I think the deal breaker might be the 235 tires....anyone run that size?

Hey V50...what exactly is rubbing? and is it ok if they do? Am I hurting anything?

Your car might explode. You should probably just give them to me.

But seriously, worst thing that could happen is it might rub away your fender liner. My S70 was rubbing on the subframe forever and didn't have a problem

OK, I've ran a 235 40 18 Falken 512 on both an 18 x 8 and 18 x 8.5 both 45 mm offset no problems. But 235 40 18 Eagle F1 a/s are wider than the falkens, on the 18 x 8,5s they rubbed on the outer fender lip all 4, when I hit a bump hard... bad? well, bad enough for me to go to 225s insted, but rolling fenders or going back to falkens or continentals (I've heard these also fit in a 235 40 18 w/o problems)

good luck , just stay away from Eagle F1 a/s in this size if you don't want to roll your fenders.
