a friend has a set of 18x7.5 fronts and 18x8.5 rear rims off of his s2000

he says its a +55 offset... i know some of you guys are in to fitmant and stance and stuff just curious if any one knows how these will fit... dont want to drive 250 miles for them to stick out like a cholo low rider or have rub issues...

if anyone knows please share

im just wanting something other than stock... he has these on a lighter blue s2000 and they look amazing

there is the link to the rims

and at the price i really cant turn down...

as far as the look i want the front to fit like stock, and to have a little more aggressive look coming from the rear. i also have a set of TEIN s-techs waiting to go on

basically just a little lower and a somewhat agressive stance but i still have to drive 60 miles a day in the tsx...

I'm new to this, so no expert on fitment... but from what I'm finding out - by reading only - think you're going the wrong way if your looking for something 'other' than stock. Believe +48 is a standard offset for 18x8 on 2nd Gen TSX.
I'm looking for new rims and called Ron Jon Wheels. Believe he said +48 is standard, and they have +32 listed as 'widetrack'.
Asking about 'widetrack' he said this offset will put the rears flush, but the front a little beyond flush.
He said some will buy +38 for front and +32 on back, which puts them pretty flush, if you don't lower it.

I decided to stick with stock rims...

The ron johns are good!

I have +50 offset now with 1 inch spacers in the rear...
When i get to baller status ill actually buy rims with a low offset

Correction: Spent over an hour reading all the past threads about wheels and sizes... so, I guess the +55 is stock offset? But Ron Jon most conservative is +48...

What price was 'hard to turn down'?

ron jons aren't agressive enough for my taste lol.
Thanks... kick an old man in his sagging... anyway...
Not only have I decided to go with the non-aggressive Ron Jon Legacy 7s... I'm probably listening to my head, not my balls, and going with 18s... (well, actually, considering I looking for a smoother ride...)
19s look great, I've seen so many great pics of 2nd Gens with 19s, that was my intent... but commuting over the past month, I have noticed the rough concrete freeway, rrtracks, potholes, and generally rough roads, and considering I'm noticing this on stock 17 Michelins... I'm not going to risk going to 19s.
Yea, clearly I'm a wimp in this regard, not like the majority of the team here...
And... I won't be lowering... this is my daily, I've already scrapped the lower air damn flaps once or twice on neighborhood dips...
Wow, now I've said it... feel so ashamed... :(

Check my build thread im on 18's as well...

I drive so much that i have to be conservative in my choices as well..

I did go a littler lower with the tein springs but kept the stock 225/45r18 tires from the tech pack option...
