    Another will they/won't they

    Will a 18x8J 5x112 ET30 fit an S3 using a 20mm hub adaptor?

    Hope so

    They will be ET10 offset with the hub adaptors fitted mate, and you will command with the amount of poke you are running with this set up!


    Basically, they will fit, but they will either be level or poking out a bit from the arches. Aim for ET20-35 to be safe

    To add to what jojo said, at ET10 and 8J you're very likely to get rubbing problems on the back, which obviously isn't great news.

    Thanks Jojo, thats what I thought, a bit tight. They would have been fine if they were 5x100 but they aren't

    When you say rubbing Prawn, do you mean they'll rub the wheel arches or the running gear? Arches i guess?

    Wheel arches bud, the lower the offset, the more the wheel goes outwards.
