Uhhh you've measured those wheels wrong.  I guarantee that wheel (if it's the size you said) will not fit a stock bodied FD, especially not an 18x12.

I'd say you're probably right, here's a 12" ccw on mine don't remember the offset.

Yes, that's the absolute wrong way to call wheel sizes out... :confused:

Here are some numbers for you so you don't have to go look them up.

You'll never fit anything over a 305 on the rear with a stock body.  Ever.  Not gonna happen so don't even entertain the idea.  Kevin Doe widened some 18x10" rpf1's to 10.75" wide (an honest 10.75" wheel, which actually measures 11.75" including the bead locks in case you didn't know) and was able to fit a 305.  He had to use a completely offset trailing arm, roll his fenders absolutely flat, and pound the inner tub a little.  It still kisses the outer fender and inner fender well.  That being said, here are some more reasonable numbers for you.

18x10 +38 rear is the perfect offset for a 285 in the rear.  It will require rolling your fenders but that's easy.  You could get a 295 with a +43 offset and an offset trailing arm if you wanted.  The front is all about whether or not you like rubbing and your fender liners.  18x9 +40 will fit a 255 or 265 and will probably require flattening the liner bolt tabs and using sip ties in place of the bolts.  You can also fit an 18x10 +50 in the front to allow for 285's if you wanted.

Cool man thanks for the advice ,i was planning to pull the fenders anyway to make room for the 18x 12 but because what you explain to me i would go 18x11 just to play it safe. Btw i saved this picture  a while ago where he said he is running 18x12 +32 with a 315-30-18
but he does'nt said anything else .I wish he had a rear view picture to see have an idea what kind of camber he have.

Yep pulled fenders look good.  Go look up Shine auto.  They have a few cars like that.
