18 inch rims with Eibach Springs?

Hey, just recently bought a 2013 focus s sedan and was wondering if this wheel/tire/lowering springs combination would fit without rubbing or any problems. If it does let me know if I could do anything to correct the problem. much appreciated!


18x8 Offset: 45mm Backspacing: 6.25" Sparco Wheels


235/40R18 Fuzion ZRi tires


Eibach Sportline performance springs lowers it around 1.7-2.3

Ive got 18" rims with eibach pro kit which lowered my car to an inch. I wanted the sportline but then when you have ppl in ur car itll probably rub. Mostly because of my front lip spoiler. Im quite happy with mine.

So maybe switch to the pro-kit instead? I'm digging the headlights on your focus? What are they? Also do u think you could post a pic of your whip so I could see what the 18s look like with the eibach springs?

Don't let the wheel offset dictate how low you can go.There are other wheel manufactors out there. Lower your car 1st to where you want it.

Then add your lowering kit & then you can figure out what wheels you like later. Get it coming.

yea I might end up doing that. I appreciate the help! Does anyone know from experience that this exact combination will work? After doing more research I'm starting to think that it will definitely work.
