Hello Guys,

found these nice alloys i was told they are off a EVO 6 and are priced really well.

the specs are the following:


Rim Width: 8.5J
Rim Diameter: 18
Offset: 38
Tyre Width: 245
Aspect Ratio: 40
Number of Studs: 5
Stud Diameter: 114.3

I currently have 19" Rage alloys on at the moment.

Will these alloys fit, or will the rub? just need to know before i go ahead and buy them.

If your car is lowered further than stock, the slightly wide profile tyre may rub ever so slightly on very hard cornering. Offset 40 is a good match for nearly flush to the fender and they're not massively wide
Thank you. Yes mine are on stock not lowered. Just thinking if they would suit it haha its hard to photoshop this

Hmm choices, i have attempted at photoshopping alloys on the car.

These are Ultra Lite Alloys.




and These are the EVO 10 alloys without the red strip.

225 on 8j et40 rubs. 245/40 on 8.5j will rub way more and stick out of fenders. You might get away with 225/40 tyres and alot of camber.

I've got 225 on 8j and et35 and I get no rubbing at all. Granted I do not corner hard

Then your car is just not low enough! :)
I have -15mm eibachs and 3 sets of wheels.

225/40r18 8j et40 - rubs on hard cornering and big holes
235/35r19 8j et40 rubs on moderate cornering/holes
225/40r18 8j et30 - this one rubs just about all the time. And my wheel arch flares pop out after every drive.
