2012 aftermarket offset range

Hi guys, Im wanting to purchase some 18's for my 2012, I know offsets deal with the width of the wheel. Im looking at 8" or 8.5" wide wheels but I've seen an offset range from 35-45 and I'd like to know which one would make my wheels flush, or close to stock. Thanks!

If I remember a past posting correctly, the stock offset for 2012's is 50mm for the 16 and 17 inch wheels and 55mm for 18 inch wheels.

you gotta do a search for pics and ask offset, there is a wheel and tire forum in the third gen section.

but I have heard the best for flush is a 18x8 35offset cuz any wider it would rub. But I am sure if you found a wider rim and stretched the tire it might look more fit. It just depends on what you wanna do, lower it or not, and how far.

Maybe some people can post thier wheels here too... :o
