Can I mount 18-inch rear tires flush with the fender without the risk that the tire will hit the fender during normal driving. By "normal" I mean going slow over speed bumps, driveways and avoiding potholes.

Second question is: What is the widest 18-inch rear tire that can be installed on the car assuming flush to the fender? I would appreciate the response in inches rather than by the size like 285 or 295 because the actual widths are different depending on the brand.

..hey Angelo, I'll check my size and offset for you tomorrow when I get home.I know I'm running 18x9.5 on the rear, but i can't remember if the offset is 20 or 25. The tire size is 275/35/18 & I have a very flush,no rub of any type set-up. I know you can run a 18x10, possibly a 10.5, but then the offset/tire size will become a bigger factor to keep from rubbing. Also if you need new shocks,a wider tire/rim combination will almost always let you know,with a little rub...hope this helps some

I would appreciate any info you can give me. My only concern at this point is the car up-down bounce on bumps and such and the possibility that the rear tire will hit the fender. I am not planning any mods and the tire diameter will always be 18. I just want my next set of tires to be as wide as I can fit and flush to fender outside. My concern is also only about the tires not the wheels.

Does this car have stops to limit the wheel-to-body compression of the rear end?

...sorry I'm a little late getting back to you,but it's been hectic around here. My tire/wheel size (for the rear) is 18 x 9.5, with an offset of 25 & the tires are 275/35/18. I'm also lowered about 2inches all the way around. Since you aren't planning any types of mods, you should be able to get alot of rubber under the fenders, The width of the rims & offset will play a part in how wide of a tire you can use.

HRE 546, 19", offset +25, 255/40/19 fit front and back without rubbing.

Went with an aspect ratio of 40 because 35 was too short, and damaged my wheels on Long Beach potholes.

It's a little fat, but it helps being taller for comfort, and wider for traction.

Philip MST, I was just wondering if a 255/35/19 will fit on an 9.5" front rim and if it will rub at full turn . . . rim is 19 x 9.5 +17. Can you confirm one more time?

Forgestar F14s with Hankook Ventus V12 evo K110
Front: 19x9 +30, 245/35/19
Rear: 19x10 +30, 285/30/19
Dropped about 1" on Megan EZ Coilovers. Not quite flush, but as low as I can go with the sloped driveway.
Only rubbed once while turning during a bump.
