I'm planning to buy a set of Varrstoen ES221 18x8.5 45 offset wheels and i wanted to see how would they look in that width and offset, so any one with those specs feel free to share, i'm lowered on eibach prokit and kyb gr2 struts

I highly doubt they'll fit without spacers. Can you get them in a lower offset like 30?

That's better. A 8" wide wheel with 35mm offset is already getting close to not fitting on our cars.

I had a set of Drag wheels 17x8 48 offset too and didn't have any issues, i just used spacers in the rear to stick them out to match the front ones, i preffer to use spacers than having a wheel that stick out too much

Either its and illusion or there is almost no space between you caliper an rim. You better hope you never bend your rim or your wheel bearing goes bad.




On the inside my car looks like a fighter jet.

There's almost 10mm space between caliper and rim spoke

Nice fit, especially with the flares, but I'm not a fan of the stretch. I would have gone with a 245/35 on those rims.

Why the stretch if you're not low low?
What size tires?

For sure, Needs to be lower to pull off stretch, looks good though

I'm surprised 225s have that much stretch on a 8.5.
Looks good for sure!
