Apologies, its 4am here and I've been at work since 6pm so my concentration isn't up to much. Haha
haha no problem, thanks a lot for the information!

alright thanks i appreciate the info!

You will have 2mm inner clearance at your front shocks with 18x9.5 et35. If you ever going to change to coilovers, then spacers is needed, because those are thicker.

You can use 235/40/18 tyre at front and even add 5mm spacer. It still won't rub.

I know that, because i have that exact setup. 18x9.5 et35+5mm spacer with 235/40/18 hankook ventus and HR sport springs.

This is the same setup without 5mm spacers.

Front will work also with 225/40/18.

Your rear would stick out 8mm more compared to my rear setup. Its close call it might rub slightly, if you don't get your rear fenders rolled.

My rear setup is 18x9.5 et22 with 235/40/18. I did try it with 10mm spacer (final Et12) and it only rubbed, when hitting bigger bumps etc. Fender roll would solve that. 9.5 et12 will extend 2mm more than 10.5 et27.

I really suggest that you buy that setup, it will look pretty good and 100 times better, than the basic 8.5/9.5 et35. Fender roll isn't a big deal.

I wanted more aggressive wheel setup ,so i ordered new wheels. These will be installed next week.

18x9.5 et22 with 225/40/18 front
18x10.5 et15 with 255/35/18 rear

Also will be changing to coilovers at the same time.
thanks a lot! this really gives me a good idea about it. i'm glad to know that the front definitely fits and it looks great on your car btw! Is it better/safer to have the 5mm spacer up front or is it just whatever i prefer?
Again, i really appreciate the info!
