i may not be the best help here but i would say you may wanna roll out your fenders for rims that size. how much of a drop you looking at along with the rims? i dont think you need to roll the front fenders, i think you just need to trim the fender well, but the rear i would say get rolled. thats just me though. maybe other will disagree. hope i helped something.

Eh he said 18x8 is the biggest he thinks...but didnt seem to sure...all he did was plug in my car info into the computer like i can do myself and found what wheels came up...im liking these quick responses. lol anyone got wide wheels that know for sure how far you can go before modifying.
