    Wheel help on coupe turbo!

    Ive found 2 sets of wheels I like on eBay and was wondering how easy they would be to fit.
    The 1st set are 8.5 by 18 and the Tyres are 225/40/18 et42 and the 2nd set are 8.5 by 19 and the Tyres are 235/35/19 et40. The wheels are going on a coupe turbo and I have coilovers as well if that helps. I don't really wanna do any arch work if possible!
    Would these wheels fit without any problems or would I have to get the arches rolled? Any help on this would be cool. Thankyou.

    Neither will fit.

    You need no wider than 215
    The truth is always the truth even if you haven't realised it yet...

    i have 18's on my coupe turbo with an offset of ET35 you must use 215/35/18 tyres or it simply wont work and it'll rub, i know because i learnt the expensive way.

    I also had my rear arches rolled for a safety measure as the clearence was a few mm. with ET42 you'll get away without rolling for sure!
