    Hello,

    Fitted my new 18x8 rims yesterday and the front looks like they're sticking pretty far out. I'm getting a 40mm Wietec kit fitted very soon and I'm starting to panic about about the fronts rubbing the arches once its lowered.

    Anyone know if I'll have any problems?, the rears look spot on but I'm a bit worried by the fronts. The offset on my new rims is ET35. :sos:

    Thanks

    Tom

    You should be OK. If you have 225 tires I don't see you should get any problems..
