Yes, 18x8.5 ET30 is fine.


edit: See below. I was thinking to myself 38 would probably fit better.

The front will stick out a lot without a lot of camber to bring the top in.

If you want it to poke a little more, +30. But I'd say +38. Don't go +45. You'll rub inner fender if you plan to lower.

Thanks for pic links @gramicc101, front 30 is aggressive poke. Maybe 38 front rear 30 better fitment.
I don't know anything about camber truly. I like a little poke or that flush look. Just don't want to rub anywhere. I would like drop her down 1.5"max 2" one day.

Camber is important. It's one of the settings that dictates how your car is going to handle. Here's some good info.

I'm getting old. To me, tax return money goes to house upgrades or getting my wife's business running.

@gramicci101 thanks again on info. Cam bolts seems like easy 1st step, added it2 list. Just still undecided on aggressive front et30 or 38.
@paiceyfan you know it,lol
@Stang70Fastback feel like I'm probably heading same direction.

If you're buying 4 of the same wheel, just get them all ET38 so that you can rotate the wheels/tires.

Or all ET30 if you really want it to poke out in front.
