Default 18x8 +40 Fit?

Just as the title says will it fit and not rub on a stock suspension? Slight rolling neccessary? I want to run a 235/40/18 tire.

Depends on the tire. You can bolt any wheel with a 5x114.3 bolt circle onto our cars. The problems arise when you want to have tires mounted as well.

Its all math and measurement. Go to Custom wheels, chrome wheels, alloy rims - BIGCUSTOMWHEELS and clock on sizes guide. Plug in your current setup, then plug in what you wanna do. It will tell you all the differences and where they are. Then load the suspension on your car and take some measurements. You will know whether you need to roll or not.

Of course you could also do it the old fashioned way and just bolt your new setup on. If it rubs, roll the fender.
