Will this fit on a sedan?

I want to run 8.5x18 et29 in front and 9.5x18 et23 in the rear. I have no problem rolling my fenders, but I'm worried the rears will still rub. Thoughts? I would like to avoid having to stretch the tires or having negative camber.

I would not recommend that fitment, the rear and fronts are rather aggressive and you will need fender work. The rears may rub depending on your tire sizing.

That's going to need some work to fit without rubbing.

I agree with the others, offsets on that setup look pretty low to me.

I have a sedan with 18x8 ET 29 in front, it's aggressive, almost more than I like. You're going to poke about 1cm in the front with 8.5" and that rear is going to cause you problems too.
