    Im contemplating on changing wheels and doing the white on white look and going with white saleens. My question is im going to be running 10" rear with 295, but wanted to run a 18x10 +22mm offset at the front as well. I dont have coil overs and im on eibach sportlines. Im gonna run a 255/40 on the 10".. i know im gonna have a slight stretch. So would it fit without major rubbing issues, or stick out past the fender? I dont want to have camber it alot and eat my tires.. BTW the reason i wanna do 18x10 up front is because im getting a wicked deal on 4 18x10's

    Whip out the tape measure and compare your current wheels.

    On my car: no

    You're going to be 3/8" further to the inside than my OEM 03/04 Cobra 17x9 +26mm wheels. And I rubbed on my sway bar at full lock, ended up using steering rack locks. I initially had 275's on the wheels, went to 255's. Tires never rubbed, just the lip of the rim.

    I tried my roush 18x10s up front but the offset was for a s197 lol.

    I say get them and sort it out ..... mostly because when you google the question there is no answer iRoush is the only person who repeatedly pops up irrc

    It'd be about 20mm extra I think. Half the extra width (25.4mm) + the 8mm less offset.

    You gotta split the extra 1" in half. 12.7mm + 8mm. 20.7mm=0.81"

    Well did some more calulations and the wheels going to be 11mm less clearance on the inside and 15mm sticking more outside. Now to see if i have that 11mm of clearance on this inside, the 15mm sticking out should be flush..

    If you think this is a challenge, I'm gonna try to fit 295/35's on 18x10 wheels up front on my 95. I'm gonna roll and pull the fenders, probably have to install some rack limiters and hope for the best.

    10" width +22mm vs. 9" width +30mm
    I just did the math in excel, I got +4.7mm wider to the inside and +20.7mm wider to the outside. Adds up to 25.4mm (1" wider).

    I think my 03 cobra wheels sit pretty flush, front/back. 17x9" +26mm front wheels
    The 10" +22mm will be +8.7mm wider on the inside and +16.7mm on the outside. Its going to stick out of the fender, or be right underneath it

    The wheels may be +28mm.. Even so, only 6mm difference.

    6mm doesn't sound like much but I think all of us here would like an extra 6mm added to our dick length

    Put a Griggs SLA on there and you can run 10" up front
