Has anyone rolled their fenders to run an aggressive wheel?

    I'm looking to run a set of 18x9.5 et24 with a 235 tire, maybe a 245.

    That’s going to need more than a roll with those specs.

    9.5 rim with a 235 tire? 235 fits an 8. Why waste rim weight if you're only running that tire width?

    235 rsrr, runs like a 245. Also, they're just my older tires that I'm going to use up before I go with a 255. Just snagged a deal some ballsy ce28rts.

    fenders on these new civics seem paper thin, seems like if your not careful you could end up with bacon fenders

    haha small world I contacted him also, said he hasn’t done any of the new civics yet. I ameunning a 235/40 on a 9.5 +38 and looks like I will be fine. Waiting to install D2 springs, if I cant clear or rub will look into coilovers with camber plates. For the rear if you dont feel like rolling you could do the spc rear arm for added neg. camber

    You will definitely be fine with that offset for sure. On facebook, ososik media has a 18x9.5 et22 that he rolled and pulled with success and he's about 2" dropped. I'm currently on 18x9.5 et40 and I can tell theres a fuckload of clearance left, granted I'm near 3 camber but yeah.

    Your not gonna rub on that specs... I have bigger set up than that and it works fine. Im running 19x9.5 +38 on 245/35 michellin a/s 3+ With 1” low on HKS coilover. If ul have 18 +24 lower by 1” then u should be fine.

    Correct me if I'm wrong but, you do have a bigger wheel in terms of height, yes. But don't you have a shorter tire which makes up for it.

    Like I said, your going to need fender work done with that low of offset. I’m running 18x9.5 +38 with 245/40/18 all around. Rears rub a little bit with natural camber at certain turns. And my fronts I have cambered in all the way with my bcracing coils. Your best bet is to go 235/40 roll and pull. And run as much camber as possible to get them to fit. Traction going to be shit tho.
