Ride: Ford BF Falcon XR6 Ute

Location: Sisters Beach
TAS, Australia

Hey all, new to the forum, recently purchased a 2005 BF XR6 Ute. It's all standard apart from 2.5" cat back exhaust and FPV 18's.
Not a huge fan of the rims and my previous car was an import so i dig the Japanese style wheels.
The set I'm looking at are a ROTA P45R2, in 18x9.5, available with a +12 and +20 offset.
I believe my current wheels are 18x8 with a +35 offset.
Does anyone know if these new wheels will fit without modifications to my guards?
Thanks

If you get 9 1/2" you'll need the +12 on the front for suspension clearance. But that width may be too wide and be defectable if it sticks out of the guards too much.
The rears are pretty flexible on utes, dunno which offset would make it look tucked though. You'll have to do some measurements to see where the rim would sit relative to the guard.
