Question on 18x8.5 rims

Hi guys.

How will 18x8.5 rims fit? Will it give it that stretched look? I am not really looking for that stretched look. I rather a flushed look.

The car isn't lowered yet. anything I need to do/know for that side to fit fairly flushed?

What offset were you planning to use?





You can use those pictures for reference. Those are 17x8 with a +25 offset. I purposely went for a wider stance for the track and had flares + corner balanced after the picture was taken. Stock wheels have an offset of +50.

You can try out this website for calculations:

A fun read in regards to offset:

Cocoa,

That's the issue I'm having. I don't know what offset to get to get it to be flush or almost flush. I understand that 8.5 might not be the norm width for our cars.
