Default 18x8 Konigs 40mm Offset on Eibach Car ?

I'm looking at these Konig Wheels and was curious if I would have any problems on a car with Eibach suspension. The wheels are 18x8 and have a 40mm Offset. Is a 235/40-18 the best tire to use on these? Will I clear everything in the front OK ? Anyone have pics of a car with 18x8s all the way around with a 40mm Offset and Eibach ?

TJ, I am currently running 225x40x18 michelin ps2s on an ASA 18x7.5" wheel. I have suspension techniques 1.3" lowering springs Front & Rear. the offset on the wheels is 42. I have no problems with suspension rub at all. I have a slightly smaller tire and wheels that are 1/2" narrower than you are asking about and I am not as low as thew eibach kit will go. I know that is not what you asked, but its what I can offer....

those wont rub on the fenders. Ive got 18s w/ a 2.5" drop
you will be close to the rear trailing arm but will have clearance. By the looks of the wheel you should have no brake clearance problems so I say go for it, those are sweet wheels.

225/40/18 definitely fits, easy to find for great price.
235/40/18 probably fits, but will cost a little more
