Fitment help!!

Hey guys,

I am a noob when it comes to wheels and its fitments, so any input would be appreciated greatly.

My friend offered to give me his wheels, which are rota grids.
The specs are 18x9.5 +20 offset all around.
Is it possible to fit them on 07 AV6? If so, what is needed to get the wheels on? The car is currently dropped on Tein Basics and the top of the tire tucks about 3/4 of an inch.

My brother thanks all in advance to everyone helping!

-Dave

Do some fender work and it shouldn't be an issue. What tire size were you going to run?

I have 19x9.5 with +20 offset, u will have to roll and pull your fenders to get it to fit, and ur gonna need to stretch the tires, either a 225.35.18, or 215.35.18, or 215.40.18.

I just adjusted it, I think it's at 3.2 if I remember correctly, it already rubs with a load I can't push it out any further

^ What he said. Also Roll front and rear fenders BUT also pull your front fenders only the rear is not necessary.
Good luck

ok. rolled fenders are a must no matter what for any kind of wheels with more aggressive offset than stock.

as for fender works, what's the ballpark of $$ I should be looking to spend?
I don't want to pay a fortune for something that's not. This is part of research. haha thanks!

Where ate you located?
The people that roll them around here do it for about 30-45 a fender, but I used a heat gun from harbor freight 13.99 and a hammer (less than 10.00) and mine came out great, also used a phone book and a bunch of pizza boxes (have a buddie at dominoes) and pulled all of my fenders.

i'm located in north jersey...
it's harder to fit aggressive wheels on sedans than coupes, if i am not mistaken. it definitely can be done with camber but jersey roads suck and i drive a lot so tires are gonna be a b*tch to replace every so often

do it i ran 18x10 0offset all around... you will need a slight pull upfront and roll and camber in the rear.. you will also need some 215/40/18 tires
