    Will 18 X 10's work on all 4 corners?

    I found a set of rims I like- FINALLY- but they are only available in 18x10's or 18x8.5's.

    Since most guys here seem to like 18x9.5 in front, 18x10.5 out back, I was wondering if 18x10 all the way around would work?

    If so, what would I need as far as tire size, and what offset would I need in the back to keep the wheel out flush against the lip?

    Also, the car is lowered at all corners 1.5 inches.

    Sounds like I have a similar set up. First of all are the 18x10 wheels you want available with custom backspacing? My car is lowered 1.5" all around, I have 18x10's all around mounted on 265/35/18 fronts and 295/35/18 in the back. I have never had any rubbing of anykind, never had to use the BFH technique, just a lot of careful measuring. I am at work but will try to get you the backspacing I ordered these with and PM you when I get home.

    Thanks a million!

    And yes, rims are customizable with backspacing.

    you can fit 12" wide wheels in the front fairly easily.
    10" aren't a problem.

    Man, I guess my wheel wells are abnormally tight up front. I've got 9.5" 18s running 255/35/18s and on hard turns the fronts definitely rub. A little bang here and there and I'm okay, but still, every now and then I'll hear 'em.

    what offset are you running, and what's your alignment like ?
    I have 315s in the front and have no rubbing, even with r-compounds and racing the car.

    How the hell do you run 315s in the front? What size rims and what offset are they?

    with stock brakes and Wilwoods braking system, i was using a 7/32" spacer on the 17x11 +50mm offset.
    With the big Porsche red's brakes, i don't need any spacers and use the 17x11 +50m

    more or less.
    racing that involves cornering... not just straight line, like most people (i like drag, but more for the social, once in awhile, have an idea what it does, kind of thing)

    fwiw, there are a few ppl w/ 18x10.5 vette wheels on all corners. a user that comes to mind is acarnut... not sure if he joined the board after the crash, but he is in other boards too... might be a good thing to search... he had plenty pix.
