Anyone know if it will fit without rubbing with 18x8 ET45 wheels??
Anyone have experience with the Nitto Motivo?
It is only the fronts that will be close. I have 225/40/ 18 all around with a similat offset and they easily clear the suspension and just clear the wheel well. As it would be only an increase of 5mm each side, it would probably work.
