Advice on wheel offsets.

Hi all,
I have just fitted some alloys with the following spec-
Rear- 9.5j r18 ET45 with 285/35 tyres.
Front- 8.5j r18 ET35 with 245/40 tyres.
Wheel spacers 25mm all round.
Suspension -std rear but sitting 15mm lower due to weight of lpg tank and front Z shocks/springs.

But I'm concerned I have the offsets wrong and will rub the arches.

What do you think?

Thanks.

If they are already fitted haven't you tried them to see if they rub? yours equate to +10 front and +20 rear so should be fine on 18".
I ran 8.5"x19"front and 10" x19"rear with +22 offset with 15mm spacers so that equates to an offset of +7, which just clear the arches with a small amount of trimming of the inner rear arch.

So you ran 10" rears with +7 offset and just touched arches and I have 9.5 with +10 offset the face of wheel should be approximately 15mm further in.
Thanks.
