Hey guys, I am going to order new stuff on Wednesday. Here is what I am thinking

American Racing Razors, 18x9, 275/35/18 all around with rims being 24mm off set, 6" backspacing.

I want the wheels out towards the fenders. Will I need a spacer or will they look ok fine with out?

cool, those should look different.

you'll definately want to space them right out, especially in the back

If anyone wants to reply to this that would be great.

Do you think I will have a problem with 18 x 9 with 275/35/18 when I install the Eibach Pro Kit springs?

What about offset?

I run an 18x10 with 295.35.18 drag radials. They fit great but to go flush with the fenders I put a small spacer..maybe half inch. I run 265 up front...275 may be too big..stick out a little. I have no pics..lol..I can take some this weekend if you like.

I like the second wheel better.

The offset - what offset's are avaliable with those wheels?

lowering wont give you any clearance issues, especially with only 9" wide.

If the offset is the same as the front, you'll need spacers for the back.
If that's the case, mount them, and measure it out - to be sure.

The 18 x 9 has 25mm offset and 6" backspacing. Should I consider a different tire size?
