    Hey guys

    Have tried searching but cant find anything. Wanting to know if 18 x 9.5 wheels will fit on front and with what tyre. Basically i have some wheels which i really want and only come in 18 x 9.5 for front and rear. Offset options are +38 +35 or +20. Which one of these would be ideal?

    Thank You

    I'm running a 18 x 8.5 +25 on the front, car is not slammed but is somewhat low. 235/40/18 but it's a semi slick so closer in size to a 245/40/18 radial. Scrubs on the liner and caught the guard one day and bent it out. If you want to run a 9.5 I'd say 38 would be the safe option.

    I run 19 x 9.5 +30 front & rear, previously had 18 X 9.5 +38 on the rears too.

    Fairly low, fronts rub the inner liner at full lock but otherwise no issues. I'd say the +35 would be fine with a 245, +38 would be ok too.

    Rears I currently have 275/30/19, guards are rolled but that's it, no silly camber, etc.
    Previously with the 9.5 +38 had a 265, fit easy, sat just inside the guard.

    Think you'd be ok with +35 front & rear if going 9.5" on both.

    Rear I'm running 9.5 + 30 with a roll and 265/35/18 tyres. Minimal camber around only -1. All fits fine.

    18x275x35 rear 18x245x40 front, - camber on the front was set by the shop that fitted the tyres, not sure what it is but I can see it.. nothing on the rear. Car is lowered about 25mm all round, doesn't have a problem with clearance.

    Hmm interesting. The wheel shop was adamant 9.5 does not fit on the front. Thank guys so what i can see the best options would be either the 35 or 38 all round. Car will be lowered around 20-25mm

    And that would be because the wheel shop is possibly right, 225x40x18 on the front :oops:

    Oh ok cool yeah i think the grey area is the 9.5 width on the front. From memory you cant have smaller then 245 tyre on the 9.5?

    If this is the case i guess my question is if i go with below combo will the sh!t fit

    9.5 rim Front tyre 245 offeset +38
    9.5 rim Rear tyre 265-275 offeset +38

    Looking at that link you just posted the 9.5" +38 size is only available in a 5x100 pcd, we need the 5x114.3 so that would rule out that option anyway.

    Go the 9.5" +35, the +20 will poke & you'll need stretch & camber.

    As said above, I've got 9.5" +30 with a 245 tyre on the front of my zed right now, have had for 4+ years. It will fit.
    Even the 245 has a little bit of stretch on it, I might even go to a 255 when the time comes to replace tyres.
