Default Quick wheel figment thread

Quick wheel and tire question...I'm about to jump on a killer deal for some saleen wheels and tires. The specs are as follows. For an uncool person like me who plans to keep the car at stock ride height will I need to roll the rear fenders ar all?

front: rim size 18x9; offset +24; tire size 255/35/18
rear: rim size 18x10; offset +22; tire size 265/35/18

You should post your inquiry here

Judging by the specs you've listed, if you're going to run that fitment at stock height, they're more than likely going to poke out from the fenderwells. Meaning that you might get that 4x4 look. I can't say for sure as I'm not a SC300/400 fitment guru. Which is why I recommend posting in the thread above.

Actually the mongholkhan(sp) pic in the first post of the same sized wheels showed we it'll work. It's just that everyone in that thread is lowered, or planning on it.

I'm not saying it won't work but at stock height they'll be poking out a bit. MongolKhan's car is dropped which allows for the wheels to camber in at the top which is why the wheels don't poke out and gives his wheels a 'flush' with the fender look. When you're at stock height the wheels don't camber like a dropped suspension set-up does. Which is why I said, they might poke out a bit.
