You won't need them, but the rear wheels will look sunken/shallow with a +45 offset.

I'm gonna guess: Are they Motegi wheels?

Nice! I just sold my Konig Incidents, great wheels. Mine were 17x7/ +40 offset. Because the xB's rear track is narrower than the front, I used the OTG 10mm spacer shims to even it out.

You should be golden with your set-up, a friend of mine is running Motegi RT5's, same size and offset as yours with absolutely no rubbing.

sickin?

they will not rub the suspension. Can you tell us what size tire or what kind of drop. I do suggest getting some for the rear or you will be about 3/4" inward from being flush. Not looking good in my own opinion. That is the way mine are now and I am working on some shims for the rear.

Ohh welcome

This was my old set-up: 17x7, 215/40, 10mm shims, 2" drop.


This is the current set-up: 18x8, 215/35, 10mm shims, 2"drop.




Basically I now have a +22 offset on the rear, no rubbing!

Looks good Dion, I didn't know you got new wheels!

25mm spacers in the rear will put you almost flush with no rubbing.

Here are my old 18x7.5 40 offset with the 25mm spacers

You might clear at full drop with the 25mm's not positive. But since you won't be rolling, it won't really matter.
