Im currently looking to buy some 18x8 +34 offset wheels, but I want to keep the oem 215/45/r18 tires and was wondering if they would fit over the wheels. I also wanted to know if that +34 offset would have any issues with clearance on the brake calipers. I have seen someone put the wheels im looking at on the 2019 mazda 3 but his were 18x9 and he had no issues, so im not sure if going to a narrower 8 inch would create any issues. The wheels are the JNC005 18x8 btw, any help would be greatly appreciated, thanks.

The 34 offset should reduce the factory inset slightly. Looks great according to this:

Let us know/see how it goes. Going to lower too?

Hey @Ryan.Rosen did that wheel set up work out ok? I'm looking at 18X8 ET40 Fast FC08's and am curious about the same brake clearance issue.
