I’ve seen that a ton of people have the eibach products and I want the eibach pro plus springs and a sway bars kit and I will get camber and struts too. I’ve seen a lot on the si’s fitment but is that the same as the fitment I would need on the 16 ext and if there’s a thread that answered this post it pls . I don’t know much about suspension but I want 18x9 wheels i think what size tire should I get and I don’t want to rub or roll fenders so do I need a certain wheel off set and I’d like to not use spacers

Eibach pro-kit can run without chamber and you can wrap with 235/40R18. On the offset, since you want to be on the very safe side, any offset +37 & above will be very safe to avoid any tab mod & pothole after lowered. The +37 is taking the consideration of 9” wide you mentioned but if you change your mind looking at 8.5” or 8”, you will want to look at +40 because 8.5” or 8” is toward square setup compared with 9” poke setup.

Just so I’m understanding you, to get flush tire/wheel fitment if I do the pro kit I don’t need camber and I could use 18x8.5 or 8 with an offset of like +35/+40 wrapped in a 235/40R18 and everything should be safe and look right

That’s right. As your is 2016 model, although +35 can give you a flush look on 18x8.5 or 8 but it will rub on the tab due to the square set up. To avoid the tab mod or avoid any rubbing, +40 will be a peace of mind.

I run pro kit with
My wheels have an offset of +44mm. Would even look better if I used 37 or 38mm offset. Springs are Eibach Prokit.
What width wheel? I run 17x9 255/40 +40 on prokit with a little poke. No rub or tab mod. What's prokit-PLUS?

+45 is almost close to oem. I would not as it doesn’t really an ‘upgrade’ to me. Try to explore further. For 8” or 8.5”, +38 is the lowest. Below +37 will start to rub on the tab (on pro-kit) once the lowered spring bottom up. +40 is peace of mind because tyre construction differ from brand/model.

Shopping for wheel takes time and patience. For me, if all possible, try to meet these 3; ‘design’, ‘weight’ and ‘fitment’. Even if you pay more for the weight, it is worth it, you can feel the acceleration is immediately lighter and save gas as well.
