They are 18x8 all the way around. Why would you do that? The offset will work though for the front.

I think the ad has a typo. The picture appears to show a wider wheel in the rear; probably 8's and 9's or 10's, but you would need to verify.

Something does appear to be wrong with the price?

When its too good to be true then it probably is. EBay, no name brand at all, dubious specs.

Also the price is not cheap once you add in the shipping.

Wheels are one area not worth skimping on in my opinion. Their uncomfortably low price would have me worried about construction. Besides safety concerns, a lot of these aftermarket wheels are very heavy so performance could suffer as well. If they provided a manufacturer to check out it might be a different story, but I'd pass if I were you.

Thumbs down

There are no typos, these wheels are DEFINITELY Made in China knock-offs. There are tons of them on Ebay. People should be cautious in using such cheap knock-offs...For this price there is no, or very little R&D involved in producing such wheels.... When it comes to wheels,and tires i wouldnt bet my life on questionable quality, but some people still obviously purchase, and use such wheels because of the cheap price...
