ok so i just got Continental ExtremeContact DWS on my car (225/40zr/18) and man i can not explain to you how awesome they are! HOWEVER, I GOT 18X8 with an offset of 35 mm and when i have going on bumps it is rubbing.... not sure why that is i think its hitting the fender which i am thinking about bending in so it wont rub. do any of you know if the 35mm is bad for my tc which has a normal offset of 45mm?

SO here's another email i got from PTuning after I asked some more questions: Sorry, if there was some confusion in the original email.

PARTS:
$745 = 4 x Enkei EV5 Matte Bronze 18's at 38 offset
$525 = 4 x Continental ExtremeContact DWS 225/40/18 tires
TOTAL PARTS = $1270
LABOR:
$120 = 4 wheels mounting and balancing
TOTAL LABOR = $120 – 10% = $108
*$80 = To dismount and remove TPMS sensor from old wheels to swap to new wheels.
Again, we can only offer those prices if the mounting and balancing is done by us.
Please contact me if you have any further questions or if you wish to order these wheels and tires."
Now I stand at $865 (parents pay for tires) damn, with all that money i could get so much more for the car. but as the saying goes you gotta pay to play.... ughh

Don't feel too bad, JUST the tires mounted and balanced on my existing rims was only a few bucks under that last time I did it :angry: (which is why I'm back on stock rims for the time being).

i think they look odd in 18's...when i was lookin around and deciding what size to get i saw one girl that had them in 18's and they looked huge imo. 2 have minor rash on them which i am going to get fixed as soon as i can, but i would let them go for around 300
