    Will they fit on the back of a 7th Generation accord? Its got adjustable coilovers on, and camber arms, but don't want to run silly camber or stretched tyres! Help!
    Fronts are 18x8.5 +35 but these should be ok??

    Running low on time, as agreed a price. :Smile:

    You're going to get quite a bit of poke tbh, it'll look worse on the front than the back. If you have lower and upper adjustable camber arms you can pull the entire wheel in a bit to compensate on the back might need a touch of negative camber, but the front will need the arches rolled slightly to look right in my opinion.

    They are 8.5 fronts. Just the backs I'm not sure on. I don't want any stretched tyres or silly camber.

    If I wouldn't recommend running that wide on the rear unless you go for a slight stretch on 245/40, the back of the car will struggle more to follow the front with really wide tyres. A lot of people run a reversed staggered set-up in FWD race applications with wide rims/tyres up front and narrower at the back for that very reason. I'd consider running about 18x7.5 ET40 at the rear on 225/40 to be honest, if for my rims I had more of a size choice I'd have done this myself.

    If they're also to go on the front I think you might get some scrubbing on the inside arch on the front because the tyre will be about 12mm further back, obviously that's not a concern on the rear.

    It's actually got 235/45/17 tyres on all four corners. So not sure how that effects things.

    I have bought these wheels, but got them dirt cheap, so if they don't fit right I can easily resell.

    Just interested to see how and if they fit.
