18x7.5 +48

You can probably get away with something as low as 35mm offset as long as the width of the wheel isn't something bigger than 8.5"... then you'd run into fender rubbing issues.

wheels dont have to be the EXACT offset, its rather hard to come across that exact preference with aftermarket wheels ;P

18 inch wheel offset? Looking for after market wheels and want exact offset.
Best results from testing:
235/45x17 tires on 17x8/40 mm wheels that clear calipers; stock 225/45x18/48 mm offset. BC is 5x4.5' (114.2MM)
Repalace front springs with 1-1.5" loering springs AND disconnect front antisway bar one side only. Removal unnecessary.
Replace fron t brake pads witn HAWK HPS pads for Honda FIT after filing the shape to match; its not difficult nor time intensive. Yeah the SE has a front pad very close to the 2011-12 SE. And provides much better braking.
Review results "Sonata singing in the rain at VIR" on you tube. Thats a driving rain with speeds exceeding 110 mph..

Acceleration is improved, no change in mpg, and speedometer error less than 1.5 mph at 60 mph. Check C&D's comparo this month. If you ignore subjective 'results' and concentrate on measured data the SE is a clear winner. C&D's butt, hands, and eyes just never have matched mine.
Just out of curiosity,why do you want to match offset?

Standard is 48 mm; we've found 40 mm is least you can go without threatening interference with a 26" diameter tire. (standard 25.97")
We found 17x8/40 are excellent fit with 245/45x17 tires to increase performance and maintain mpg.
for confirmation of offset check tire rack.

Why can't I edit the typing errors in original post?
