Hi guys

Just a query to see how I'd go fitting 18x10 +40 in a 255/35/18 tyre to my Foz.

I'm lowered on coilovers and am running only slightly lower than stock height. (No fender to guard fitment here)

Looking for anyone with experience or can find anything on the net.

I'm guessing that I'll be sitting mexi-flush in that the wheels will poke out a little?

Time for some flares :lol:

Seriously though, 10" wide will make your life difficult on a daily (cops)

I'm running 18x10 +38 with 225/40 tyres
I'm sitting pretty low and I don't have any problems without having guards rolled

Got any pics? I've never seen or heard of that wide on an SH. That is some serious stretch though! :lol:

Its not so much the wide rins that are difficult to fit. Its wide tyres (on wide rims). Which explains why someone was able to do 10s. - because 225 stretched. Which is a pretty damn extreme stretch haha.

I had to do spme pretty extensive angle grinding in order to fit 295s on my SG. Not so much becuase 10.5 rims. Although, in my opinion they go hand in hand. Im personallynot a fan of excessive stretch fitments.

I'm not a fan of the overly stretched tyres either but when they come on the wheels pretty much brand new, I'm going to run them till I need new ones

Being from the Wollongong area we have our good roads but also our fair share of bad ones and I don't find the ride to be too bad, although I did go down the snow on the weekend and would have liked the tyres to be a bit meatier :/

I don't currently have many photos of the setup (not very photogenic)
I'll try and get some more detailed ones up tomorrow once I give the car a good wash and I have better lighting
