    Did you nip off some of the calipers by grinding the excess off?

    1. Told you the wheel would fit if it didn't- did you order it at the correct offset?
    2. Didn't talk with you about or offer spacers
    Proper selection of wheels shouldn't require spacers. Your wheels may have had the right offset but not eough clearance from the inside face of the wheel to the caliper based on the style. Backspacing dictates the distance from the hub to the inside edge of your wheel. Offset is from the hub to the centerline of your wheels. Take a look around the information is out there so you can select the proper wheels for your car. Image below for reference.

    Installed TSW Cadwell 18" Wheels, 1.5" hub centric spacers, painted the calipers Burnt Copper with the Genesis Logo. Got the Genesis caliper logo on Etsy.com
    The tires stick out about 1.25" from the fender but I think the wide stance looks aggressive.

    Don't take yourself so seriously.
    No one else does.

    No, just adding the 1.5" hub centric spacers gave enough clearance from the calipers in front.

    trying to figure out how to post pictures in larger format because thumbnails don't work on mobile devices.

    I made a short video clip last year of how to add, edit and post a picture on forum. You can drag and drop multiple pictures on their website, edit/resize each one (don't forget to hit "save" each picture, after you edit it) https://imgur.com/

    Important! don't use bigger pictures then ~1200 in length. There are no official rules on how big the pictures can be, but imagine just me, posting here a single picture 7360x4912 out of my D810 it would make the forum unresponsive a little

    I hope it helps

    Thanks man! I tried Google Drive, Amazon photos, and finally found uploadhouse.com to make it work. I saved them as 640x480.
    Yours looks easier!
