Varrstoen wheels

Morning guys I've did some research and have seen that a couple of members have ran some wide wheels on their non-m sedans and coupes but they all had more of a higher offset. I'm looking to run 18x9.5 and 18x10.5 et 30 all around. I understand ill have to stretch the tires but my concern is whether rolling the fenders will be suffice or if ill have to cut out the inner lip. As of now the car sits on 3sdm .05s which are 18x8.5 and 18x10 et 37 and I have no problem even with the car on the lowest height on the PSS coils. The front currently is running -1.5 camber and the rear is -.75, so what do you guys think?

Thanks

That sizing is pretty aggressive, and it's definitely going to take work to fit.

The fronts stick out 20mm further than what you're running now, and the rears are 13mm further.

Definitely a difficult fit. I did have 18x9.5 et35 in the front and didn't have rubbing either, had some space. I think the back is going to be the most difficult to fit. Thanks for the input VMR

The rear will definitely be a challenge! What tire size were you thinking about running?

Probably 255 -35
And a little more camber, just for the summer show season. What would you recommend

Well it's all going to depend on how you set your car up. Just depends on how much stretch you want on that setup.

Yea for sure, definitely not going to do crazy stretch. But I might have to just go with a square set up. There is a guy on here press22 running 17x9 et12 so how would that compare to a 10 lol
