Wheel Size/Offset
ront-18x8 plus 30mm
rear-18x8.5 plus 33mm

Tire Size
front-225/45R18
rear 245/45R18

I was thinking about samething too

back will rub if your fender is not rolled but it won't rub if you roll the fender

and wait until those haters start calling you a ricer b/c you are getting staggered setup

why is it rice? its a nice set of wheels. thats all I care for. making the car look nice. Im not on this holier than thou car trip. I bought this tib as a daily driver and even though its " sacriligious" I dont care. Itll look cool. even it it is a FWD fake sports car with staggered wheels.

Well, I tried putting the stock 18" touring wheels on the Tib, and as I jacked the car back down they touched the fender before the car was even all the way down.

So...no they wont fit properly unless you do some fender rollin.

if its rubbing just sitting there you wont get it to run like that w/o seriously damaging the tire and/or fender. Those offsets are just too low. Our fenders are just too narrow.
