you can do lower offsets if you choose to go with skinnier tires

Is there any way to put F=18x11 with -1m, and R=18x13 with -15 on a sc300 with out buying a widebody kit? Anyway to make them really close to flush with a pulled fender?

lets all keep in mind that that car has a widebody kit and that there is no way in hell those would fit on a stock bodied SC without a lift kit or fender removal...

There isn't room underneath the car for that wide of a wheel If there was just by chance, you would have to run a much higher offset...

Here's an example - my wheels are +35mm offset, 9.5" wide - they sit very close to flush with the rear fender... they sit 92mm out from the hub, so, reasonable to say, a wheel with 90-100mm front side depth (not a technical term, but meaning from the hub of the vehicle to the face of the wheel) is flush with the rear fenders... the face of those 18x13's would sit 193mm from the hub, a whopping 4 inches out farther than mine - the positive side is that that wheel would work in terms of inner suspension clearance just fine...

What offsets?

Rolled Fenders (or plan to)?

We would need that stuff first...

No, those widths will be fine, the heights won't though - both of those tires are about an inch too tall... I run 275/30-19 on 19x9.5 +35mm offset, and no rubbing with rolled fenders...

Lowered or not has almost nothing to do with wheel fitment / clearance - if a wheel doesn't rub at normal ride height, but rubs when lowered, then all that means is that at normal ride height if you hit a bump, it will rub - lowering just uses up part of your available suspension travel...

you will need vertex ridge or other true widebody kit.

pull will not be enough

I'm no wheel expert but I can tell you from what I'm experiencing currently with my car is scrubbing at full lock at the height it sits at now (dropped 2" up front, 1.25" rear... scrubs either way, though usually when negating a right hand turn and will scrub the left side guard lining) but it'd never scrub at normal height. That's on 235/40/18's and only going by my experiences on a +40ish mm offset. My old Soarer (18x8.5"/+38mm, 235/40/18 fronts, dropped about 2.5") never scrubbed the front guards whatsoever, and the way the car was aligned to cater for the drop virtually prohibited any outer guard lining scrubbing. Remember, I'm only referring to the car when it's wheels are locked, not driving straight (usually it's fine driving straight unless I crash throught an ungodly behemoth pothole).

So could I get away with some 18x9.5 +18 18x10.5 +18 with just a roll, and pulled?

the difference is that when you hit a moderate bump with it lowered, it gets into that "rubs the inside" area, whereas with it at stock height you would have to hit a much more aggressive bump to get it to rub...

whats weird about your car, is I have 255/35-18's on a +40 mm offset, and the only time mine rubs is at full lock and going through the dip turning onto my street faster than 25 mph - no other time, ever have I gotten the front to rub...

yes, very common setup around here, you will need narrowish tires, however - somethere in the 225/235 range front, and 255 or less in the rear...
