    Advice fitting 18's on my Astra G (Pics)

    Im looking at buying a set of 18inch TSW Reflex Alloys 2nd hand
    They are ET38 offset and 7.5J wide.
    The tyres on em are 215/35/18 Fronts and 225/35/18 Rears.

    I know with 18's at 7.5'' wide ET 42-49 is prefered and that a 3-door Hatchback has the least arch room,
    with the 5-Door, Saloon and Estate having a fraction more room due to the design of the car.

    TSW Wheels:



    My Car on FK Coilovers:




    So those of you that have 18's fitted, will I need to do any arch work for these wheels, or will I get away with it?
    My car will be at the same ride height as it is in the picture above ^ ^ ^

    Opinions / Comments please???

    Oh and my Turbo Wheels wont be For Sale either, sorry guys.

    ET38 on 7.5J is perfectly ok

    Even lowered about 60-70mm u wont have any problems

    preferrably have 215 all round but if u want the slightly fatter rubber at the back then thats up to u - personally it could be a little excessive but all depends how low the arse sits
