Widest wheel and tire fitment under stock rolled fenders (FD)

Is anyone running 18x10.5" wheels with 285/30r18? If so what is the ideal offset? Anyone running even wider than that? Possibly 18x11 with 295/30r18? Also I have seen offset rear trailing arms and is this nessasary for wider fitments?

A 17/18x10+50 is a popular size for the rear. It's been shown to fit no problem. Can't say for the front. Is there a reason why you're pinching pennies with the width? That extra half inch isn't going to make much difference.......

That's what she said

Stickys will likely have the information you need. You might try a search on the trailing arm question. Personally I don't care for rolling, and especially for pulling fenders, so I never considered those sizes.
