I'm running the same 18s off a G35 (I've tried posting pics but that's not working for me) but your could run 225,235, or 245s all the way around and have so problems with the steering, tho because you'll have the same tires all around make sure shop don't rotate the tires. My rims have front and rear stamped on the inside spoke as I'm sure yours does aswell. I was thinking of running the same size also but I like the staggered look better 225/40 Fronts an 245/40 rears

I have 18x10 wheels with 40mm offsets all the way around. Would I need spacers in the rear and what size?

Depending on what you are going for. You will for sure need spacers if you want to be flush. My front set up is 18x10 +19 and I'm sitting flush with that and same will go for the rears but I think you will be able to go a little lower in offset in the rears to be flush. Of course if that is what you are going for.

Yes, I definitely want it as flush as possible. Im in college so funds are tight. Cant really afford new wheels. What are my options with spacers?

Default Front 18x9.5 +15 rear 18x11 +25

Found some wheels I really like, but the fitment seems to be really weird. How could I make these fit without beating up my car too much with fender rolling and pulling? Or should I go 9.5 all around for less issues please halp! Forgive my ignorance I have no experience when it come to this stuff!

I think on the fronts you can get away with a roll only. The rears might need a slight pull depending on the tires u use

I feel like a 20mm spacer will be able to get you flush but I am not 100% hopefully someone else will be able to get you better info if needed.

If the offset is a +40 then u will need a 15mm spacer for it to sit flush. You can use a 20mm but u will need to make sure that you either roll the fenders completely flat or shave them

Thanks guys. Really appreciate the help. I'll probably go with the 15mm spacers. The tires are 255/35/18 if that sheds a little light and helps out any.

255/35 on a 10 is a good amount of tire. A 15mm might do the trick

That should be perfect. Just remember you will still need to roll your fenders. I run the same exact tire in the rear. Here is what mine looks like with a 255/35 on a 10" wide wheel. +25 offset
