Now you've just gotta get some suspension under there. 4x4 has gotta go!

Lol for sure! It has been pretty nice for driving though the lakes that have been forming over the roadways here in WA over the last 24 hours. I'm not gonna do anything crazy, maybe 1.5" drop because I do drive dirt and gravel roads on occasion... Hard. lol

You could be the new owner of one of them, castles. LOL Then you wouldn't have to go anywhere.

Just added my tire size to my post. Didn't realize I forgot to add it.

The story goes, the original owner and builder of the castles. When he came back from the war he brought his then girlfriend back with him. He asked to her to marry him, then asked which castle she wanted to live in.

Lookin good!

I am worried I may have bought too big (wide) of a wheel for my hatch. If these are 7.5, I have a bad feeling my 18x8.5 tarmac's are going to be too wide. Anyone with a 2012+ willing to pitch in? As for offset, they dont list on their website, basically says "based on fitment". Does anyone on this site have 8.5's on a 2012+?

Then again, the tarmac's have no lip, and flat-faced so maybe it wont look TOO bad with a little bit sticking out.

Thanks,
Adam

Ideally, you want to be somewhere around a +45 offset. My 18x8s are +45, and sit just shy of flush in the front, a +45 on a 8.5" wheel will stick out 6mm further.

Here's my car with 18x8 +45 wheels.

Nice thanks.

Again, they don't list the offset so that's my main conern. Flying blind basically. But here's an inner picture that's all I have to go off of:
