Basically, indeed the dish will be less with the 5mm offset increase, but it will still be more agressive looking than the front rim, since 5mm < 1 inch. They make the rear offset 45mm since a 9.5 width rim will rub with a 40mm offset.
Specs:
Size: 18x8.5 front, 18x9.5 rear
Bolt Pattern: 5x120
Offset: +40mm
Center Bore: 72.60

if they did infact change the rears to a 45 this would make sense the the rim is closer on the inside towards the suspension because that extra 5mm will be on that side now, vs. towards your 1/4 panel....i read in another post somewhere that the guy lighty tapped it in with a hammer for clearance...you may have to do this (as might i )

Yeah, with the extra 5mm there would definelty be enough room for a tire. I'm going to call velocity motoring first thing tomorrow and see what the deal is. I'll post the results immediately.

Offset is +45mm for the rear 9.5 on 19"s, but 40 for the 18"s

ooooooooooooo... I thought you were worried because you had +40mm in the rear. You will 100% perfectly fine with 18x9.5 and +45mm... With +40 you would rub on your 1/4 panel, with 45 you'll be oki doki

Oh, and with the +45mm rear offset, you'll still have the dish look, going back to what I previously posted, 5mm < 1 inch. You're wheels are perfectly fit bro, go slap them on and post some pics!

You won't rub on the inside. I know people with 10" wide rear wheels running 265/30/19 and a HIGHER offset than you with SEDANS that are clearing okay. Quick example: bluecougar

That's also a 20" rim, this is an 18 and because of that size it looks like it might hit. Its hard to explain, im going to try and get a picture tomorrow.

lol I understand what you're saying man. But before she got 20's, she had DPE 19's, 8.5 front, 10" rear. Also, the hamman PG2 rims are 45mm offset in the rear and they are 9.5 width as well.

there are quite a few people on here with the csl reps, and they are all listed as being +40 front and rear, and most run a 255/35/18 out back with no issues. if you have a little bit higher offset, (have you actually looked at the rim stampings, maybe the post on the box is missprinted) you should still be ok. remember the coupes have slightly larger wheel well openings than due the sedans (i found this out when i received the wrong mtech sideskirts) just get them mounted up and drive to pittsburgh immediatley so i can see them!!

^ good point. I'm going to go take a picture of what i'm talking about so I can get everyone's input. I did check the inside of the wheel and on one of the spokes it says "45" dont know if this is the offset or not. The back tires just got delivery to my house about 30 minutes ago, im getting so excited to finally get these wheels on.

Well after another test fit and further inspection i think im going to be fine. I was just alittle worried because it seems i'm the only person around that has the 45mm offset in the back on csl wheels. Even mike@modbargains was unsure about it. So yeah, this is me:

If it really is the 45offset you are better off. I would call Velocity

I know my 19's are 45 THANK GOD or I would have never fit the 265s on it
