Got a set of 18 X9 +44 and 18X 10.5 +50 rims

Are the above offset will clear the brake calipers?
What tires size will be the best for the above rims
Will 245 /35/ 18 and 295/30/18 fit those rims on a eibach springs and stock shocks without rubbing the fenders ?

You can run a 255/35R18 on the front with no problem. The rear will be very close, but the 295/30R18 should work. The problem is only the Pirelli comes in both these sizes (255/35 P-Zero Rosso & 295/30 P-Zero Asimmetrico). I would try the 265/35R18 front and 295/30R18 rear AVS Sport. If you want to be more conservative, go with a 255/35 front and 285/30 rear.

I don't know if the wheels will clear the caliper.

Your 285's wouldn't rub if the wheel had the correct offset...

FYRARMS is correct. I have 295/30R18's on 18x10.5" with completely stock rear fenders and Eibach springs. I have no rubbing at all. BTW I am running 265/35R18's on 18x9.5" wheels on the front with no rubbing. It's all in the offset.

You will probably want a different offset if your going with 11" instead of the 10.5". You can look at the wheel fitment guide I put in a sticky at the top of the MKIV Tech section.

Installed the wheel already. The rear fits perfectly,with 285/30/18
But the front got problem. It wont clear the brake caliper.I need to add a 4 mm spacer in order to clear the caliper,I am using 235/40/18 front.and it really understeer alot but it wont rub the fender at this moment,but its already very close.What are the best thing to do if I want to run a a bigger tires like 255/35/15 without buying another set of wheel? Roll or cut the fender?

You should always check the fitment (caliper clearance) of a wheel before you mount the tire. This way you can return the wheel if it doesn't fit. I would never recommend a spacer, but you could add a 4mm spacer and the 235 should still fit. This will be the largest tire you will be able to run with what will become a 40mm offset.

Good luck, Steve
