I am looking to buy a used pair of

Motegie MR116 18x8 +45mm
Paired with tires
Falken Ziex ZE912 225/45ZR18 91W M+s

Using wheel offset calculator basing my stock rims at 60mm offset 7.5 width, it says i will gain 9mm clearence inner (by the strut)
and poke out 21mm towards the fender, 21 mm is a nickle or .826 of an inch

So the question is
Will i need a roll or should i be fine?

yes you do need to roll.

just wondering, which year is your 6, i dont remember a x7.5 on a factory wheel
the stock 17 is 17x7.0 +60

but yes you do have to roll :)

rx8 18s are 18x8 +50, and those need rolling with 225s

mine is an 04, 7.5 was a typo.....was working on rims for my MS6 and my 8G too many numbers in my head....

How much rolling needed...midget head to inner fender rolling, heat gun and rolling pin rolling or hub attachment rental rolling?......

got the wheels , he let them go for 400.00. put them on....two studs were stripped on front driver so i had fun replacing those at 1 am... good thing i keep spares around. had to roll rear fenders, unfortunatly my midget was sick and wife took away my rolling pin so i used a rubber mallet instead. im sure my neighbors loved me working on the car till 3 am banging away. ill put up some pics later.

You have any picture of nice clean roll and what we should expect if we pay someone??? Hint I was quoted 16 to $1,800 today, to cut, weld, refinish! OMG - H$ll NO!

Bought a used 6, with 18 X 8, +45 sporting 225/40/18 and as you pointed out, they rub on the rear. Front seem fine tho.

Thanks in advance. . .

Thread popped up again and I have since had the rear fenders rolled for $100.
A full tank of gas + people all is well.
