I’m looking to order a set of 18x8" wheels, what offset would put them perfectly flush with the fenders? I looked around and I think et 35 would work, but I am not positive on this, so anyone who knows please enlighten me!

How flush do you want them? If you want them literally like at edge of the fender borderline poke, I would say without a doubt below 30, somewhere around 25 possibly?

Go with et35, install lug studs, and tune the look with spacers.

I just ordered the wheels, I will be doing the fine tuning like you also suggested. I'd rather have to push it out a little than not be able to push it in...

yeah 35 would be a safe offset to work off of.

My wheels are ET33 and it's perfect.

i've got 32 and the front is flush but the back is not... i might need spacers at the back. does that make sense?

^^ yes.. The front stick out more than rear, just how our cars are

any adverse effects but putting spacers on just the rear?
