Hello guys, I really need help, one of my rims bent and I need new ones ASAP because its leaking air, and now I guess its time to get new wheels, instead of just replacing one.

I'm looking into Rota grids 18x9.5 with 215/35/18 tires. I am dropped on tein s techs with tokico blue's with rolled fenders. Will the poke scratch the fender? Or will I rub the tires? Thanks you guys! Please try to reply as soon as possible, if it will fit then I need to order them today, as shipping will take a while

I'd get 17x9 Grids.18x9.5 is f***ing huge! Plus tires are gonna be expensive. You shouldn't have an issues with 17x9.

Where would it rub? Front or back? And the plastic wheel well of the car or the lip of the wheel?

The problem is I'm already running 18x8, and just bought some brand new tires..

is the offset of the rota grids 38mm? You will most likely hit actual suspension parts.... front struts and the rear struts and most likely the rear axle beam, the offset is to high...you should look into something that is 18x9 or with a offset at least under 33mm, im on stechs too im gonna be running 18x9 30 offset maybe with a 225 40 or a 215 40

look around for shops that do wheel repairs... this might be cheaper in the long run and save u money...

Thanks for all your help guys, I would have made a huge mistake with those 18x9.5 with 38 offset. Really helped me out!

Those are so nice.. but I was hoping to keep it under $800. I have yet to decide some affordable nice wheels! I was looking into some replica bbs rs 18x8 +35 .. do you think those will fit well? He also has 18x9 +35 but those may be too big right?
