I just bought these...18x8 +38 and 18 x 9 +45....went with the standard 225/40/18 and 255/35/18 tire sizes. Just put them on today and they fit like a glove. No rubbing, no modifications needed. I had style 68's on previously and love the new look. Ill sell the 68's and these wheels and tires will have cost me about $600.
