Nope. Not even close.xPhax said:I'm plan on buying 18" wheels within the next month. The offset is +42 and the tire size is going to be 215/40/18. Will I have any rubbing issues lowering 1.5" with Tein S tech springs? I prefer springs over coilovers so please don't say, "Get coilovers."
48 offset for 18's is great. It's the standard for dropped 18's as far as I'm concerned.... 48 or higher.97 Lude VTec said:Hi HP5R, im here to debate this issue again with you ::Waves::
anyways, i have 18x7.5 with a 48+ offset, and im lowered on coilovers (listen to hp5r, he knows his sh..poop) I am lowered on 215/40's.. not quite 1.5, i dont think, but i dont rub at all... granted i drive like a granny.
yeah, his offset seems to low to be good for a drop.Hprelude5R said:48 offset for 18's is great. It's the standard for dropped 18's as far as I'm concerned.... 48 or higher.
his offset though? They'd smash the fenders to pieces.
OH yea, and driving like a granny? You gotta treat that thing like a mule! Anyone with a dropped 5th gen should make the tires scream in pain through twisties everyday!
45's are good on 17's, but I'd still definately pass for a set of 18's.xPhax said:How about +45mm offset? It's a little closer to +48mm. I'm really liking the Konig Hurrys in black with polished lip and that's the highest offset available.
so u got WIDER tires and you want to lower it MORE?!xPhax said:I finally found 18's in +48 offset. They're 5zigen Hyper 5zr wheels in hyper black. I'm going to buy 225/35/18 tires instead of 215/40/18. I was wondering if I can lower it a bit more with Neuspeed sport springs (1.75"front, 1.5"rear") instead of Tein S Tech (1.5"front, 1.3"rear) without rubbing?
