    Hey everyone I am planning on picking up some new wheels for my car so i can finally get away from that stock look.
    Just wondering if anyone can share some knowledge on what the perfect offset would be for the wheels to sit right at the fender. Thanks!

    Ideal offset for these cars is +35, +30 for flush Fitment depends on wheel width also.

    I’m running Avid1 AV27 18x8.5 +35
    Tires: 255/35r18 Firestone Indy 500
    Fitment is pretty flush, I think +30 would put you dead center on the fender but you would need some fender rolling as you’ll be scrapping the fender (depending on tires)

    Depending on what is it you after, for look or for performance?

    As for those who like "look", to avoid conflicts, I leave it at that.

    I am more for reasonable performance for this economy DD, my Rays is 18x8.5 +37 and tire is Michelin PS4S in OEM size. The combination saves me 9 lbs. per corner, Combining with SI springs and SI RSB, OEM sized side wall on PS4S gives me direct feed back in transitional as well as obviously quicker acceleration. To further improve braking without unnecessary add on weight, I keep OEM 10K mile rotor but changed to ECS Yellow Stuff brake pads + stainless brake lines.

    On a different perspective, if I like to drive like bat out of hell, I get in my modded C6.

    Good luck to which ever you decide.

    ^ You nailed it.

    For some folks, it's all about the look. The wider the better. The more poke the happier they are and don't forget about the stretched tires. No worries for them about the extra weight of a 9.5" wheel and big tires.

    Others like me are more conservative. If I was buying a new wheel/tire combo and wanted a noticeably more aggressive than stock look, 18x8.5 +35 and 235/40-18 would be about right. But it's all about what YOU want from YOUR car.
