I want to get ADR kasai's in 18x8 with 225/35/18 tires. Will they rub? ((The guy at my local import shop says yes, but my friends say no... So I come to you guys!)) Thanks, all opinions welcome, individual experience appreciated.
Jesse, THANK YOU!!! I feel much better! I'm gunna order the lowering springs first thing tomorrow! Thanks! RedNos told me his car was lowered like over 2 inches, so that might explain why there was rubbing.. I'm only going 1.4, so I guess I'll be okay... ((phew)) what a load off!
One thing to realize, you can't make a direct comparison with what Jesse said. His wheels are +35 offset which is going to stick out toward the fender more giving him more room on the inside of the wheel... while the Kasai is a +42 offset. I have 215/35 and don't rub at all dropped with TRD Springs, but like I've told you before I'm not positive about 225... So will those 7mm make a difference on the inside of the tire rubbing on the plastic, possibly, but I don't know.
i have 18x8 with 225/40 tires, it didn't rub the fender, but it rubs the inner linings when turn my steering all the the way to either side, besides that, it's all fine! make sure you get a least 35 offset though
GC's I believe you. And with +35 offset on my wheels, you would swear it will hit the fender on the outside, but it doesn't. If I stick my hand behind the wheel, I can get the width of my fingers behind it. I'd worry about putting +42 wheels on there. With 18x8 and 225/35 tires, I'd say you would be safe in the 35-40 range.
