    I've been offered some wheels that are 18x9 et52, will these fit okay?

    Also, i'm concerned about they tyres on them. They are 215/35/18, will there be much stretch and what will the ride comfort be like on the 35 profiles?

    The car will be a daily driver, about 70 miles a day so I want some comfort lol

    Cheers

    They will fit with those tyres. With a 9j, that's some serious stretch on 215/35. Gonna be a bumpy ride!!

    I need some practicality aswell as looks though, especially considering the size of the speed bumps at my work :banghead:
