    18x8.5 ET 35 wheels can fit?

    Looking at getting some new wheels to match the new paint job...found a great looking set of wheels - Squared SC-1, but 18x8.5 ET 35" on Adam's S3.

    Are the offset too aggressive? Was hoping to get them in these offset to clear big 365mm brakes...

    if you use the correct tyres which is 225/40/18 on standard height it will definately rub the rear arch.
    if you are not ready to butcher parts on your car, run negative camber plus losing accurate speedo,
    PLEASE, for heaven sake, dont do it.
    if you are prepared to used 215/40 or 215/35 profile tyres its might work but you wil lose ride comfort and you speedo will be out
    and your tyres wil wear ot quickly.
    IMHO, get an alloys with and offset of ET42 up to ET50.
    if you want an 8.5 stretch, go for offset of ET45-ET50

    18x8.5 ET35 is flush with the arch, still tucks on air.

    Thanks guys! Well, have ordered them and pending shipment!

    will try removing the rear arch screws, and run more negative camber. Crossing my fingers on them clearing the brakes, and checking out Osir widened front fender mods, since I have the SuperPro Supaloy Control Arm, which pushed the current wheels out.

    I ran 215/35's on my Rotiform NUE's which were 8.5" wide. Never had any rubbing until i put 5mm spacers on the rear.
