    Wheel Experts - Offset Question

    Alright, I'm looking at some 18x9 with a +45mm offset for front and rear. Would there be any problems with fitment? I don't want the tire/wheel to stick out any. How would they compare to stock in terms of how far they stick out/tuck in?

    Thanks

    EDIT: According to some information I found, the stock 16x8's had a +55mm offset. Backspacing would be 6.6" stock vs. 6.8" aftermarket. So, if I'm correct, the aftermarket wheels should stick out 0.8" more than the stockers. Am I on the right track?

    Factory 16x8's are 55mm offset and the factory 17x9's are 50mm offset.
    The 18x9 on a +45 are prteey much the perfect setup, you should have no issues with them.
