    Question 18 x 10 and lowered?

    I was wondering if I got American Racing 18 X 10 rims with a 41mm offset and I already have the Pro-Kit but just ave not installed it yet. Should there be any problems?

    I know when it comes to lowering, you may want to in vent in an adjustable Panhard Rod. The axle moves somewhat when the car is lowerd. With larger rims (not sure how wide yuor going) oyu could have rubbing issues. The off-set sounds right but id have to do some digging. I myself was looking at some 20" rims and they were 225/35-20" (20x8.5) with a 35" offset. But 20's are pushing it. If you stay with the same tire diameter and fill it with a bigger rim, there should be no real problems.

    I have the prokit with 19x11 and the only problem I had is when I had people in the back (first and only time) and was accelerating around a turn. Other than that no problems...But I also upgraded my suspension.


    good luck

    doing some calculations, it'll fit perfectly.
    I have 17x11 on all corners w/ +50mm and clears fine... you'll clear even more... and no need to massage the inner fender.

    Had to roll the rear fenders in just a bit, and then wahlahh!!
    After about a year or so, when the suspension started settle, I had to lift the rear suspension a tad to keep the tires from rubbing the inner fender. The 2nd pic shows where the rubbing started.

    Yes the Eibach Pro-kit lowers a little to much imo.

    That is why you get the rubbing with a wider tire.

    Yeah, that was my concern. But I wanted as much rubber back there as possible, while still maintaining the car's low profile. By raising the suspension a bit (the smallest spacer I could get), I was able to avoid having to hammer-out the inside of the wheel well, like others have done.
