Hey guys and girls im hoping you will be able to help me. There are some nice rims for sale that i want to buy but i want to make sure that they will fit OK. The wheels are 18x9 +20 and 18x10.5 +10. Will these rims fit without modification or will i have to lip or flare the guards and by how much?

Even so would they clear with massively stretched tyres and increasing the height of the coilovers. Pulling the guards out a bit wont be a problem but i dont what to go to far adn crack the paint. So would they require a minor or major pull out of the guards?

Depends on the rubber mate. Got a mate running 255's (stretched to buggery) on a 10.5" rim and only needed a mild rolling. I have 275's on a 9.5" rim and needed the same amount. But pulling the gaurds out, as opposed to simply rolling the inner lip is quite a task, you WILL lose paint wich won't really matter as a panel beater would need to do it to make it look any good.

My rear guards were already stretched to the max without paint damage to fit 18x9.5 +40 with 285's. Then I bought these wheels 18x9.5 +15 front and rears with 245 & 285 and they clearly stick out, so +10 on a 10.5" wide rim add 30mm to that in my picture and there you have it.
I have had no panel roll done and have 17x9 on the front and 17x11.5 on rear. No idea on offsets. My rims are a 3 peice job from an AMG Merc. They were on the car when I bought them so I would assume - with the price I paid for the car - that the stud pattern and offset are same as standard.
