    18" pentas

    Sorry if this question has been asked before but I can't find the answer, I just won a set of 18" pentas on ebay, like a plank I didn't check if they'd fit first, I have an astra van but it's a sportive so already has 5 studs, its the 8J that im confused about any help on if they will rub or not?

    8J is the width of the rim, so 8" wide basically.

    Dont think you will have any issues rubbing.

    I thought they needed to run on 35 profile tyres? May be different on a van though

    Got them on now, I'll try and get some pictures on as soon as possible. I will need to take them off again soon as they need a refurb desperately but just wanted to see if theyd suit the van. Cant complain at £360 with nearly new tyres though.

    Needs lowering too, might find a cat sleeping under the arch if I'm not careful

    hope so as I'm going to order coilovers as soon as I know which ones I need and don't really want the trouble of rolling the arches as people with 8" wide wheels seem to have more trouble, thanks for the comment though
