For your first question: No, if you went with 18x7.5 all around you won't need spacers. But, the rear wheels will have a "sunken" look compared to the front without them, and to be quite honest, I don't think you'd be happy with the look.

Next: You don't have to run spacers or camber on the front wheels. Wheel diameter, offset and how low you are will determine if that's a necessity. Since we're talking Sportmax here, there's not a whole lot you need to do to get 'em to fit! Keep your sizes reasonable, and you'll be golden! (I'd stick with what you have in mind.)

thanks Dtrain :). I think I'm going to stick with 18x7.5s all the way around for rotation purposes/costs.

also, like you said I most likely will get spacers for the back, I can visualize that "sunken" in look and I know itll be grooosssss.

what mm spacers do you (or anyone else for that matter) recommend for these 18x7.5 witha +42 offset recommend.

you think the fron will be find with the 7.5's and no spacers?

What make and size are the rubbers and approx. price. thanks



Sportmax wheel model 006 (18x8.5 ET35 & 18x9.5 ET35) are here!

Sorry, should have been more specific. I bought an 08, want to go with a staggered configeration. 18X8.5 in the front and 18X9.5 in the rear. If I do this what tires would be my best bet? I was also curious about the boxes on the first page and what tires they used. Thanks

Matty (TCM): 215/35/18 Falken FK452(front), 225/40/18 Yokohama Prada Spec 2 (rear).

Steve (BOP): I'm assuming the same size, not sure though. But, Steve is still running the 006's.

For the 18x8.5 and 18x9.5 set-ups I have for the 006s and 502s, I'm running 215/35-18 up front on the 8.5s, and 225/35-18 on the 9.5s. There is some stretch, and and I like the way everything tucks.
