Looking at buying some new wheels, they are 18x8.5 with 38 offset. Will these fit 3g? 225/40/18 tires. Thanks!
Keep in mind though, with such a wide tire, you're not going to be able to stick with a 40 series aspect ratio...:ugh2:i've seen worse tire stretches than 225 on 8.5.
i personally wouldn't do it. the absolute minimum for me is either 245 or 255.
He seems to be running the same tire size and same size wheel I am wanting. hmmm.-18" ADR sterling black with 2.5" chrome lip(deep dish)

Keep in mind, the 35 series tire in 255mm width will have a sidewall that is only 0.05" shorter than a 40 series tire in 225mm width...so, the impact from the roads shouldn't be any different...and that way you will have a tire that won't throw off your speedometer and look/function like the lowrider guys used to do back in the early 90's, running a really thin tire on a wide wheel so your sidewall looks like this.../*****\ instead of this...|*****|...handling and traction will be much better too!I think the wheels are gorgeous, absolutely LOVE the lip on them. I will talk to the guy selling the wheels, see if I can beef up the tire size. I need 40 sidewall because my roads are shitty and I do NOT want to risk a bent wheel.

I also did a search on here and have seen quite a few people running 225/40 on 8.5" wide wheels. Hmmm...225/40-18 ; Rim Width Range = 7.5" - 9.0"
