DPE fit

OKay, so i have narrowed it down to the DPE rims, now im considering the fitment issues. with a xi, there is no real point for a huge fancy lip in the back, so im thinking of going with the 18 x 8.5s but with those specs would i need to do any kind of adjustments to the wheel-wells? if so what’s the maximum width that i could fit without adjustment?

Thanks for all the help from everyone who has responded to my threads about iforged and DPE.

I believe the max you can go without an adjustment would be 245 since these are custom rims.

Does it snow in WA? If it isn't like southern CA, getting all season is really pointless. Most all season tires sucks also.
If you want something affordable, get some Toyo T1S. They are relatively cheaper than other high performance tires and then use your stock wheels and put some snow tires on for the winter therefore if those get screwed up during the winter season, its okay as they are stockies.
