You don't NEED a 245 wide tire if all you are going to do is daily drive. Get the 18x8 with the +37 offset and put on 225/40/18 tires.

ive been lookin at 17x8 and everyones told me i wont have any troubles at all with that kind or wheel... and to go 245's/40 and join the 245 club of course lol. thats the limits of a x8 rim but its been said to be the best options. i think as long as ur offset isnt to radical u should have no problem fittin a x8

you can fit a 17x8 with as low as a +35mm offset with 245's.

With a ~+45 offset it will just fine. I know, I have it.[/b]
I know it does just fine. I know it works. I was just saying what you said, the math says it won't, but it does plain as day.

You can go with an 18" rim, but it'll be mighty tight squeez with an 8" width. You will be fine with 7" or 7.5" wide rim. The tire you'll want to put on there shouldn't exceed more than 235/40 or you'll experience rubbing.

As far as the 17x7/42, that's fine. You won't fit anything wider than a 225 on there though. Or was it 235... Regardless, I remember you saying you want a narrower tire anyway, with the 17x7 you can go pretty much all the way down to 185 or 175 if you wanted.

It all depends on the type of look you're going for. If you want them to be flush with stretched tires or set in the wheel well.
