Default Wheel Fitment

Im pretty sure that these fit, but want to double check.

There ADR-78 STERLING 18x8.50 5x114.3

http://www.avnmotorsports.com/category-s/82.htm

Offsets offered are 15,20,32,35,38. Im on stock suspension right now, but plan to lower. Suggestions on offset? Will all these fit?

There is also 18 x 9.5.

Thanks

18x9.5 +35 Will fit perfect

As for tires... 245/45/18 should be fine I think. Thats the stock tire size.

width of wheels doesn't mean a thinner tire... let me explain the tire #s you see. The first number is width. With a 9.5 inch wide wheel I would use a 275 , but a 265 or 255 is good too.245 is a little small imo might stretch a little. Sidewall is the second #. 45 is stock size.40 will work if you want to keep it beefy for family. Imo 35 would be best if your dropped.
The last number is easy. Size of wheel, 18.

With that said I would say 265/40/18 seems to fit your needs imo.


Hope I didn't lose you. It's hard to type on a phone lol.

For a car that will be dropped soon, I dont know if 255/40 would fit up front which is why I said 245 BUT 255 is def a good size to go with. 245 will be stretched on a 18x9.5 for sure

Good point. I would put as wide of a tire that fits.

Guys, thanks for the input..
It sounds like a 255/40 MAY not fit up front on springs. Would it be better to keep stock suspension and run 265/40 all the way around?

Ive also heard a wider tire is worse in snow
