Wheel specs are a tad aggressive, but nothing too over the top. Tire sidewall height though is short in my opinion.

That sizing doesn't really seem the most ideal overall.

I would drop it first , let it settle and then measure for proper fitting of tire and wheels.

The tire would definitely look stretched over a 18x8.5 wheel. What wheels did you get?

They could look pretty good if your car was on some springs or coilovers. Maybe go with a 40 sidewall tho?

The car is getting dropped and these wheels in the spring. Ideally I want my car to look close to this... (Don't know who's car this is, but it's perfect)

Style 5's are the same offsets, I think I'll be ok. Found them locally...
