You really think so? Why wouldn't it rub? Would it look good? 18x9 TE-37s... drool


imo
you will love 9" wheels been running them for years

the nismo will fly with them
volks are light too

worth the trouble to fit
imo

talk to volk
they are expert at proper sizing and offset

almost 2" wider track with 9" wheels

Well I'm no B17 expert, but based off the 18x8 et +35 pics looks like there is room for more wheel. 8.5 would fit on that I'm guessing, so if 8.5 fits @et35 than 9 @et45 would. Be fine.

Thisis purely speculation, don't go x9's and ask why they don't fit and look ghey

Be a visionary :D

I'm sure they went x8 @ +35 so it could tuck better. Seems like the stock offset is between +40 and +45 so, adding more width at +45 would fill the well better but might poke a few mm's... but barely.

8.5 would probably be safe too... where's Brooks when you need him? Loving up on some German cars I suppose :D
