Hey guys my mate has some 18's on his ED Fitted with superlows and i think he needed to have the guards rolled or something !

My question is will 18's fit my EB Series II fine without rolling the guards? I also would like to fit super lows in it but if that will cause issues i will just go with lows ! Also how much will it cost to have my guards rolled?

Different 18" wheels will have different offsets by a few mm, which means that some will hit and some won't. Camber also has an impact. Tire width as well.

Until you fit them up it will be hard to tell.

I would look at getting the guards rolled anyway, just to make sure.

Not sure on price however.

My left hand 17 with 235/45/17s hits my guard, but only when turning right and the wheel compresses.

I put 18 inch advanti's on my ed for a period of no less than a month. I had to use wheel spacers for the front but that was it. I got away without using rear spacers. However with 3sl's rear and 2sl's front it did scrub on some roads. does anybody have any ideas on how to fix the front wheel camber? my falcon with its 2sl's wears tyres within a few months it cambers that bad any onne have any solutions please let me know
thankss...

They would have been out.
235/40/18 is the same as stock.
235/45/18 will read slow, as will 245/45/18s (even more so).
