    Default 18" wheels

    So I have found some 18 inch wheels that I want to put on the 12 Xb...just wondering if 235-55-18 tires will rub or not ? I have stock suspension...thanks !

    Depends on offset. But with a stock suspension i doubt it
    Wanna give it mouth to mouth? Might be able to resurrect the so-called "boner killer."

    I have an 08 xB2 and I use a 225 40 18 with a 40 offset. It doesn't rub and with the tire sidewall of a 40, it maintains factory overall tire height.

    that tire is way to tall factory tire is 205 55r16 with an overall diameter of 24.88 and the tire you refer to 235/55r18 the overall diameter on that tire is 28.18 thats way to big.

    Sweet! I'm running D2 Racing coilovers and have the Box sitting level about 1.5" above the tires. Did knock the camber in a half step so I can drop the front another inch and the rear a half inch.
