My tire/rim feedback (18x8.5)

I know when i was looking to buy my rims i was having trouble finding any really good confirmed help when i searched.

SO here are my results:

2003 Accord Coupe

Tein S-tech springs, no camber correction.

18x8.5 rims +45 offset

245/40/18


The verdict:

the rims fit beautifully, and fill out the wheel wells very nicely....they could be tucked with a 225 tire.

With my 245 the shoulder of the tire is just too wide, so there is no way i could ever tuck. the tire is just about dead flush to the fender, on a slammed suspension you'd rub ALOT. the set up is perfect for those on moderate drops who want to fill out the wells.

pics to come.
