What are the thoughts on a 18X7 with a 55 offset fitting on a 2005 FXT. I know that the BBS's fit and they are 17X7.5 with a 53 offset. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks in advance.

I don't know yet. I'm kind of thinking 225-45-18, but I don't know if they'll rub. I may have to go with 215-45-18.

Don't know what wheels you're looking at but 7.5" width is a better match to the 225/45 which is what i'm running. That offset is a difference of approx. 1/4". It'll be close. The reason why I can't say for sure is I'm on coilovers so my lower spring perch is the closest to the tire.

The wheels I'm looking at are USDM Spec B wheels. I can pick up a set pretty cheap.
