Hey guys,

So I am looking into getting some aftermarket wheels for the first time, Kansei KNPs in silver.
I was looking to run a fitment of 18x9.5 with an offset of 35.
I'm currently on OEM suspension and dont plan on changing it due to daily driving the car. And we all know what UK roads are like.
I have seen other users running this fitment without any issues on OEM and just wondered if anyone else could confirm this
here are some links below for reference :)
Many thanks!

It will fit with no issues but those wheels are an aggressive fitment, with a big arch gap and no camber from lowering it will sit like a monster truck. It's not going to look good.

I've done a fair bit of research into this, as I'm after some new wheels. On stock power and suspension, consensus appears to be 17X8/18x8 ET35-38.

As above, 18x9.5 is ET35 is an aggressive fitment, and don't believe it would look right on a stock car.

Daily driving on UK roads would be one reason I'd be dubious about that wheel choice. If pairing with 245/35/18 tyres you are looking at an 11mm loss of sidewall height (nominal) and I reckon an additional 2kg+ wheel/tyre mass both of which are going the wrong way for ride quality on uneven roads.
