    Wheels and tires!

    Looking to put a set of 18-8 w a 42mm offset and 265's on the rear should this work fine without rolling the fenders or rubbing issues

    Just 18x8? I don't think you'll have any issues. You should roll the fenders just to be safe.

    Factory specs for 17s:

    Number of Bolts: 5
    Bolt Diameter: 120 mm
    Offset: 48 mm
    Stock Rim & Tire: 17x8 inches (245/45ZR17)
    Alternative Rim & Tire: 18x8 inches (245/40ZR18) with no change to speedometer

    18x8 in the rear with a 42mm offset seems a bit off to me. Are you going staggered(wider) in the rear?

    I run Stern ST1 staggered. 18x8.5 front, 18x9.5 rear. I believe the front offset is 35 front, 39 rear. Could be wrong. Been a while since giving my wheel specs.
