Default 18x8.5 +38 on Gen 1 MS3

Hey guys, I've searched countless times on google and on the forum, I've come accross a couple but they were different off sets i.e. +35 or +30, and the +35 was for a Mazda 6.

So i'd like to know is it possible for me to run these wheels? i plan to run 235/40/18 and atm stock height but plan to lower it about an inch all around and I do plan on rolling the rear guards professionally. Though has anyone done this or similar and can comment on what they needed to do? thanks.

I ran 18x8.5 +38 with 245/40-18 at stock height with rolled fenders and I rubbed like a motherfucker in the rear.

Freshly powder coated EVO X wheels

my friend has evo X wheels too. he runs 235s with the rear fenders rolled and he has no rubbing. so if you wanna roll the rear fenders, go for it.

I rubbed when riding alone.

Like RayRay said, some run 235 just fine.

225 is too narrow for a 8.5" wheel.

Thats NSX and S2k fitment. I'd try reselling to those markets. I know the NSX crowd loves the SE37 wheels. Regardless, they're some of the lightest wheels made for a stellar price.
