Hey guys,

I'm contemplating getting some new wheels and feel a little overwhelmed looking at the different offsets/lug patterns and trying to figure out which wheels will and won't work - Anyone able to confirm these would work on my car? I currently have 17s with 315s out back and love the staggered look; assuming it's still possible to do that with 18s? Those of you who have already switched to 18s what tires size are you guys running? I'd like to have a meaty tire out back; am I far off thinking a 305 out back and some smaller, maybe 275s, up front? I know this will throw off the speedometer and I may have to roll the fenders but is there anything else I should be aware of going this route? Thank you in advance - appreciate any and all feedback I'd be lost trying to figure everything out without everyone on here!

Those sizes will fit for sure. If you're wanting to put a 305 on the back, you will likely need to roll the fenders. The speedometer will be accurate as long as you get the correct diameter tire. Here's a helpful link for that: https://tiresize.com/height-chart/ Just go to 18" and find something close to 25.7" overall height.

I have 18x11s & 315/30-18's [roughly 25.4" tall] on the back of my car and the only time they rub is at full suspension compression while turning fast. That’s only on the passenger side because I still need to center the rear with the panhard bar.

As @Maximum95 mentioned, you'll likely have to roll the fenders and probably remove the quad shocks. My car is fairly low and I really need to roll my quarters.

Yup they definitely fit. I have the same wheels with a different finish. I thought they were discontinued.

Here's a few pics from different angles.

Thanks for all the info and pictures! Has anyone heard of that website and know if they're legitimate? It's the only place I'm able to find them with them being discontinued.

Those prices are way higher than I paid. If you were a member of SVTP I could give you the info of a dealer on there. I paid $1050 shipped for 18x9 and 18x10, but that was 2 years ago.
The original price was $1300 and he got me a deal. I'd be real leery with those prices considering they have been discontinued.
With the prices on that site, Welds aren't all that far off
