Nice wheels! Are those Titan 7's? Stance looks perfect too. Your name sounds familiar - did you have an ep3 before?
Thanks! Yes, they're Titan 7s custom powdercoated. And nope! I came from a Mazdaspeed. A good friend of mine has an insane ep3 though.

That should fit according to my measurements. I'm running 18x8.5 with ET43

Is anybody running 245/45-18 tires? I don't know if they are too tall to fit properly on our cars.

I damaged 3 tires in two weeks due to terrible pothole season here in Mexico City. Ended up replacing my beloved MPSS with cheap Sumitomo HTR ZIII (locally they are 1/3 the price of MPS4s). I am planing on changing to 18" wheels in the future and want to get as much "meat" between the pavement and the wheel as possible.

For wheels, I am considering OZ Superturismo LM 18"x8" ET45 or Enkei TS-V 18"x8.5" ET40.

Sorry to hear about your pothole situation.. sounds like I’m dealing with that in Montreal as well. I don’t think many, if not anyone runs 45 profile tires on 18’s.. mostly the 17inch wheel thread. A 245-40-18 on a 18x8-8.5 would be a sweet setup imho. Some are even putting 245-40-18 on a 18x9 wheel. I personally will be fitting 255-35-18 on a 18x9.

99% settled on a set of Konig Dekagrams 18x8.5 ET43 for $870 shipped from Discount Tire and a set of 245/40-18 though I'm still deciding between MPSS and maybe the Continental Extreme Contact Sports. Or even Toyo Proxes 1

If everything I read here, and the various fitment tools, are an indication I'm good with this combo for no rubbing with stock spring and stock suspension. Yes?

They will fit stock no problem. They would probably be fine with a drop too.

Please post pics if/when you do it. Dekagrams are near the top of my list as well.

Was tired of the stock 19´s with how bad road are here. Will keep them for track duty when I get some new tires for them!

Bought some used OEM Ford Fusion wheels and had them powdercoated semi-gloss, shop said they were perfectly straight when they checked them before coating which was good to know! They clear the Brembos without need for spacers with plenty of clearance to the back of the spokes.

The specs:
OE Ford Fusion wheels
18x8 ET55
245/40/18 Firestone Indy 500

Plan is to use my 12.5mm ST suspension spacers next summer for my daily setup. Will post pics next spring when I install them, already on winters now.

They would also make a great option for those looking for a winter wheel with the OE look if you find some locally for cheap. They almost match the base wheels or winter wheels design too. Ford also made them with a black painted finish but there was none of those for sale locally so I bought the silver ones for a great bargain and had them coated!

Since a lot of members here started driving (and modifying) their RS, it would be useful to share information about aftermarket 18" wheels that fit to RS.
If you successfully fit yours, please share your rim information.
Or, if you want to know the figment of particular rim, put the make/name here.
Let the wheel rolling!
I have Konig Ampliform in bronze 18x8.5 +43 with 235/40r18 tires. I also have Eibach lowering springs and Eibach 20mm spacers on all four corners. Fit is perfect and no rubbing! Enough height to get into driveways, low enough to close the wheel gap!

Any more pictures form the side? Head on? Would love to see more! Also...+43 offset with a 20mm spacer...is that a 23mm offset??
