Wheel offset

Since this is primarily XI section wanted to ask here

I bought set of 18x9 et40 wheels with 235/40/18 all around (slight stretch) for my 08 XI sedan

I put a 20mm spacer in rear to make more flush so essentially now et20

In front I'm gonna need a 3/5mm spacer to clear strut. I have 15mm on now from previous buy - sticks too far out)

Guess just want to see if anyone running this kind of setup? Like it? Etc etc

I'm trying to make it work. Def should've done a 8.5 et35 then ran spacers but all well

I have pics if interested

Thanks

I bet it a nice aggressive look. I run 18x8.5 35 et all around with 15 mm spacers out back, probably could of ran a 20 mm since my wheels are only 8.5 inch wide. Looking to throw either 10 or 15mm spacers out front to get that flush look. Would a 10 mm work out front for you or still stick to far out. A 5 mm difference is just under a 1/4 of an inch.

Here are some pics

Since I'm hitting the strut I think a 5mm will work fine and still allow some lip left on hub

I'm measuring again this week. So a 5mm would be 35mm offset in front and 20 in rear

Looks good man! Quick question I just put 18s on mine with a staggered setup! The camber on my wheels looks tilted in? Does yours?

Putting 18s on shouldn't effect camber. Post pic with your specs on wheel forum. Someone their should be able to answer your questions

I noticed your car has been lowered, thats why the wheels tilt in /camber.

From the looks of your pics , I assuming the front wheel in the picture is with the 15 mm spacer on ? I agree the 5 mm spacer would work nicely but also think a 10 may look real nice too. By looking at the picture if that is the 15 mm spacer , its not sticking out to far past the fender. So even with a 10 mm it would stick back in almost a 1/4 inch back , but a 5 mm is probably perfect. Keep in mind that if down the road you lower the car the camber will also dip the top of the tire in a little.

Yes. 15mm up front. Going 3/4/5 mm so I still have enough lip on hub for a good fit

Since 20mm in rear I think a 10mm would stick out too far.

Ill post pics once I get appropriate spacers on
