Does anyone make M6 reps in 18's

with a STAGGERED setup, ala stock? I would like to keep my stock tires and just swap out the wheels?
I know 19's come staggered but haven't been ableto find 18's with that setup.

Thanks

--and I already did search but couldn't find sh!t

unfortunately there isn't so far in the U.S. A fellow member who resides in Spain were able to get a set in 18x8 and 18x9.5, i wondered the same thing for 6 months before settling with M6 Rep in 19s; however, compare to stock RFT, it's still an upgrade...

We have 18x8's but no staggered - no plans to make any either

I have been looking for them also, 19 may look better but they don't perform better IMO.

Kind of a different question but along the same lines...

Can you run a 225/40-18 front and 255/35-18 rear on 18x8 M6 replicas? I know the front should be fine just wondering if the rear would present any problems...I know this tire combo is on the optional sport package but the rears are 8.5" wide in the rear...am I going to have any problems with a slightly narrower wheel in the rear? I would love to have a 9 or 9.5" rear but that staggered combo is a bit hard to find and the prices floating around on the 18x8's is def. in my price range!!! btw-I already sprung for those p-zero's the tire rack was blowing out and would really like to put them on some M6 reps...any thoughts (and don't say go with 19's!!!)?

Thanks all...

I know of someone that has the 18" staggered on the way in. They should be arriving within two weeks or so. I can definitely reserve you a set and the wheels will definitely look perfect on your car with the staggered look. Please PM me if you're interested in the staggered fitment. FYI, that's the perfect size of tire that you should be putting on...

Thanks for the offer, I'll pm you later today...back to the original question, can you run a 255/35 on an 8" wide rear rim with no problems?
