    18s on 5dr Hatch (G)

    Hi all,,, I wanna know if any of u 5dr owners have 18's on ur motor and if so what offset and tyre sizes are u running? and any problems with rubbing?

    Im desperately after some decent hoopage but dont wanna settle for 17s. Im not really interested in gettin brand new as there seems to be some decent 2nd hands ones flying about.
    Unfortunately most of the rims Ive seen have been in ET38 which I believe is too low...

    Im led to believe I should be looking for the following offsets:

    7.0 x 18" 38-49ET
    7.5 x 18" 42-49ET

    The only ones Ive came across so far are 7.5wide and 35-38ET which surely would cause some scrubbing.

    Any help would be appreciated. Any1 got any 18s for sale??

    7.5 x 18" ET40 running 225/35/18 tyres no problems with a 30mm drop except once when i was carrying a boot full of bathroom tiles and the rears rubbed slightly then.

    Before his alloys I had 7.5 x 18-ET42-215/35/18
    Oh and its lowered with 40mm PI set up Dunsy not unless its been changed
    I've had it fully loaded with no rubbing or problems at all, with no mods needing done
