Thanks Frank, Yeah I knew about the offset difference. I was just trying to point out, that you don't need to run 245s for 18s.

I got 235 BA rims on my EL using adapters and it doesn't scrub, so it shuld be good with 245 the adapters don't take up space they actually create more space. :lol:

Stock set up, :P

if your runnin superlows 235s up front otherwise ull take yoru guards out

even if your running superlows and intend on going 235s i suggest rolling your guards anyhow.

245/255/265 on rear is fine

i have 18 x 8.5 on my ef, with adapters, but 235 40's not 245's. mine rub on front when turning AND going up a driveway or similar (only if i'm going a bit fast). if you keep the plastic protecters on, you wont do too much damage. will post photo's when i work out how the heck to reduce file size

Just open up the pic in paint and go to tools and stretch/skew this reduces the pics size herefore size or you can go to "save as" and save it as a jpeg file. :D
