Default how to pick the correct shoes size ?

I really need your help on these

with so many options, I'm a little bit confused, which will be the best rims for da xB

looking at some websites, the specifications are:
Bolt pattern: 5x114.3 (5x4.5).
Offset: 34 to 45 mm
Tires up to 660x235mm
Rims up to 20x8.5".


I want 18 inches rims with 235 45 18....... but........

I really would like to buy staggered rims ( wider on the rear )


but..... when I select 18x9, 18x10 or 18x11... it said will not fit

may be the 18x11 it is too much.... we can just delete it

but what about the 18x9 or 18x10 ??

does anyone have any exprerience or info on this ?

18x8 on the front ... I think it is ok

but I really wourl like to get a wider rim for th rear.... but I'm affraid.. it will not fit

I do not want to got to the store and get more confused by the sales people

so.... I want ask you guys about this....... please help

I have 18s with 245/40 et 45. Anr on racelands, adjusted half way down and no bump stops. Slight wheel well scuff on hard bumps and whipping turns. I have same size on all four. I want the staggered too but you will also not be able to rotate em. Could always ad a spacer, just a thought, for the staggeredness.

Others on this forum have 18" wheels and 15mm spacers for the rears to get the staggered look yet are still able to rotate the tires front to rear.

I would not go staggered; this isn't a sports car and there's no significant performance advantage to doing so. Go with some hub spacers (not wheel spacers) if you want the look; that way you can actually rotate your tires.

the staggered rims will be just for the look, no performance involved

if we use a hub spacer ?? how thick need to be ? I do not want to cut the original studs

at the same time.... I will be a little ( may be a lot ) worried to run at high speeds ( 70 to 90 mph ) with hub spacers..... I will not mind if it is just for cruising slow


hope it make sense

if.... I would like the staggered look on the rear wheels..... I should look for a zero offset rims or negative offset....

right ?
