18 x 8 et40? Or et48, Current 16 x 6.5 et46

Post by Intrimrepair2020 » Tue Jun 30, 2020 1:04 pm

Hi,
I’m looking to get some Momo Massimo wheels for my 2018 Caddy will this size fit ok and flush.

Or should I go et48 and have the option of fitting spacers?

Thanks

ET40 will poke out 25.1 mm more than your existing wheels. You can grab a ruler and roughly check how it going to look.. :)

Will it be flush with et40 or should I go for et48 and have 5mm spacer. Need some help with this it’s driving me mad and the vans in the garage so I can’t get to see it at the minute lol. Currently got the same wheels as yours 16”
