As a baseline, you can use the following:

Front: 18x9" ET30 with 245/40-18 tires
Rear: 18x10" ET33 with 275/35-18 tires
- Available in EC-7 and SM-10 designs only.
- This is a direct fit with no spacers or modifications required.

We have many other options listed on our M2 fitment guide here: https://support.apexraceparts.com/hc...-Fitment-Guide

Take a look and let me know if you have any questions!

ARC 8 19"

9.5 WIDTH 33 OFFSET
9 WIDTH 28 OFFSET

Do both of these setup require spacers for the front? I have 2018 LCI.
Is there any ARC 8 setup that requires no front spacers?

Thank you

Thanks for the post! The ARC-8 being one of our older designs was not optimized for the massive OEM brakes that exist today, and therefore requires spacers to clear the M2 brakes.

19x9" ET28 requires 3mm spacers to clear the brake caliper.
19x9.5" ET33 requires 5mm spacers to clear the suspension and brake caliper (applicable to stock suspension and lowering springs, certain aftermarket coilovers may require larger spacers).

The 19x8.5" ET35 hasn't been tested, and may offer better brake clearance due to the non-concave face, but would be a compromise in width (narrower than stock) and not really recommended for anything other than a winter setup.

Hope this helps!

Just ordered EC-7s 18x9.5 ET35 for a square setup w 265mm tires. Will 10mm (or even 12mm) spacers work on all four corner w H&R lowering springs without rubbing?

Pre-LCI M2, so fenders are not rolled.
Not running camber plates.

Thanks in advance!
