Is there a way i can check the offset of my wheels? i have the OZ F1racing cups 18x8 225/40/18 front and 18x9 255/35/18 rear. I want the space my wheels out so they're flush with the fender. Should i get the 10mm spacer or the 15mm spacer for my front wheel?

these 2 pictures are taken with the 25mm spacers at the back which i use for the stock wheels. They're outside the fender for these wheels, so i took em off
I'm going to lower my car next week, i don't want the front wheel to be tucked in too much. [confused]

15mm seems a bit much, I'd probably go 10mm.

An easy way to do it is just put a straight edge across the tire and see how many mm it takes to bring it out to the fender. Its not perfect but it works to get you in the ballpark.

are there spacers out there in 10mm that's bolt onto the hub, then the wheel bolts onto the spacer? like the H&R DRA series?

Offset is usually stamped on the wheel. Take em off and have a look.

Don't think so. Only 25mm and wider are bolt on probably because of the required thickness to clear the bolt head and have enough depth to allow stock length bolts to thread into. You'll need longer bolts with narrower spacers.
