They will fit just fine. You'll have plenty of room to spare all around.

What tire are you going to run on those?

Maybe on the strut, yeah... no way you're going to rub the fender unless you try to squeeze a 255 or something onto that rim ;)


It also depends if you're dropped. But assuming you're running a reasonable tire on that rim (like a 225) you should be fine.

Hey I want run the same tyres I had on my MY03, the Bridgestone Potenza's Re050's.
What size would you guys recommend?
Iwas hoping for maybe 225-235?

Quick PS,Will these fit also!?

18x7.5+48 Wheels

Decisions..
I would personally run an 18x7.5 with a 48 offset with a 235 width tire.

I run a 17x7 with a 225 width tire...it has a 52mm offset, so a 7.5 with a 235 should work. although I might go with the 48 offset for slightly wider stance and less likely hood to rub on the strut.

Whats the +48/55 symbolise?
Length in millimeters (mm). 55mm offset like stock, the wheel spokes are closer to the brake disc than say a 48mm offset which puts the inside of the spokes 7mm farther away from the brakes.

After casually looking at the diagram, one might falsely believe that a larger positive offset would make the wheel go farther from the car...kinda confusing, but take my word (and the word of others) for it, a +48mm offset will stick farther out from the car than a +55mm offset.

We really need a sticky/faq on wheel size/width/offset/tire sizing. There's a couple of threads like this a week, lol.

yes with plenty of room
Oh, LOL, I should have been more clear, I wanted to make sure that they wouldn't have too small of an offset.

Now does anybody have any opinion of these wheels (Konig Feather)? Durability? I had some Konig Rated R on my Si, I really liked them, but HATED the chrome lip (because of rock chips, not looks)...

I like the rotas, but I'm afraid of some of the horror stories that I have read about them coming apart...

I'm also considering WedSports. Basically I'm going over the possibility of spending WAY more on wheels than I was going to.

Agreed, you could fit a 17x7.5 at 48 if you wanted to...maybe even 52-53mm
