You can run 18x9s. Depends on how your car is set up though. I put 18x9 +35mm all around on and it was pretty flush but it poked just a tad.I currently have the 17x8 acura tl wheels on w/ 225/40's, my fenders in the rear have been rolled and I like the look and stance, just wanted to go with a larger diameter and wider rim not really looking to do the hella flush look, I can deal with it sticking out a little but not to far as long as it doesn't interfere with turning radius, I can deal with the occasional rubbing, this is my DD and the roads out in West TX aren't the greatest. Are 18x9's to wide of a rim for this setup or should i look for and 18x8.5 size? I have seen some members rides on the coupe section that are running some 18x9's but can't really tell if they had fender work to accommodate that rim size.
Oh and Thanks Doctor X for the timely response!
I just mounted my brand new Hankook Ventus V2 Concepts 215/45/17 and they ride amazing stretched on my 17x9's. I dont do any racing, but they're super quiet which is why i bought them.just got new wheels.
