18x8.5 rim +35 offset, 225/40-18 tires -1.75" drop B5.5 OK??

Will it fit OK and everything? Any possible issues?
Is it true that +35 offset is different on 18's than with 17's?

Gnosis is looking at Flik Artics!! I recognize those wheels specs.

I ordered mine (anthracite, polished lip) 2 weeks ago from EdgeRacing.com. They showed up in about 3 days. ONE of the rims was 5x100 instead of 5x112 and I'm STILL :mad: :mad: :mad: :thumbdow: waiting for them to ship the damned replacement.

I'm more than a little pissed. I'd post photos of the wheels on the car, but they're sitting on the floor in the garage, waiting for the 4th to arrive.

From what I understood in the article in euro tuner the offset may different in 17's and 18's. The difference is based on the width of the tire(i.e. 17x8 vs. 18x8.5)

Yes.. the diameter of the wheel is completely independant of the offset and width of the wheel.

A 17x8 et35 wheel will have the same clearance as a 20x8 et35 wheel. The diameter doesn't matter.

The most important numbers are the wheel width and offset.
