:wtf: Am i just weird or what? When i look at the 530s as being 7 U shapes i enjoy it.... but if i look at it as 7 V shapes i think its ugly. Does that make any sense or am i trippin?

530... What offset will you be running to fir the width of a 9 inch wheel on our car?.. You are probably going to need camber/rolling to fit anything in the +30s offest and +40s might rub on the strut..

I'd say try to go safer with an 18x8 with a +40ish offset so you run no chances for having to do any more work..
Well i dont mind rolling fenders but my friends are into the stance scene so i plan on slamming my car for shows lol but raise it up for daily driving

Okay then go with 18x9 with an aggressive offset if that's what you like.

Be prepared to spend a good amount of time resetting ride height and dealing with an ever-changing alignment if you plan on doing that.

I'd go with 527; It has less number of spokes to wash. :yes:

I had this dilemma before I bought rims and ended up going with 527's over 530's. I have the 18x8.75 +35 offset, 215/40/18 tires and had to do a rear fender roll to get them to fit with no rubbing at all, and I'm also lowered to where all my rings touch with my BC Coils. I think that's like 2.5-3inches I'm not really sure.
