Will this BS work 18x8 and 18x9.5
#1
So I think I'm finally down to the wheels I like and US mags and American racing make them. So I don't see and problem with the fronts. They would be 18x8 with either a 1mm offset or zero offset depending on which company I go with and both would have a 4.5 inch backspaceing. The 18x8 would be wearing nitto 555 G2'2 245/45. The rears are the question mark? The come in 18x9.5 and have the same 1mm or zero offset and both have a 5.25 inch backspacing. The rears would wear some nitto 555RII's in 285/40. Will this backspacing work and look good? I like a dip dish look and I have the red wilwoods so it should come together nicely. Just not sure how the backspacing works out. Here are the wheels are a car my color I found. [Image: Screenshot-20200517-075416-You-Tube.jpg][Image: Screenshot-20200517-075313-You-Tube.jpg][Image: Screenshot-20200517-075347-You-Tube.jpg]

  • This is what I have, 18x8 front, 245/45/18 Nittos, 18x9 rear, 285/40/18 Nittos, 5.25 backspacing, US Bandit Wheels. No problems with clearance, could easily go with a 18x10 with more backspacing Hope this helps. Ryan.

That's exactly what I was looking for. I agree that I'd still like a little more lip in the rear

I think that will be close to perfect based upon my 17's so long as your tire size isn't as insane as mine

"I love my Hookers!" and "Get some Strange" probably have a different connotation to non automotive enthusiasts!

Rears would be 285/40. I think you're running 315's or something?
