A 235 is too narrow for a 10" rim, usually a 235 is for a 7" rim.

Well, I just want to get that "drift wheel look", when tires are narrower than rims.. I don't know about the problems that may emerge at these combination of parameters. Are there any? What can you say bout the quality of these wheels and generally what size is maximum possible for 18" rims with 24 offset. By the way my other car wears 195/50 tires on 7" rims and I consider the rims to be optimal for this size - can't even imagine what happens if I fit 235 on them!

They also got 18x10" +24mm offset (6.44" backspacing) (deep dish) What is preferable this or +45mm offset (7.27" backspacing) (deep dish) - (I'm going to use 4 piston calipers)

going to small on the width of the tire will dramatically reduce traction and also increase wear, it also increases the chance of a blow out.

for a 7" width the skinniest i would go would have to be 215 (and thats cutting it)

for a 10" width skinniest would be a 275

Sounds like you like the stretched sidewall look. I actually do like this type of style on certain cars. Some locals around here run stretched 275's on their E46 M3's and the like (mostly european cars) and i must say that i am in the club of bmw haters but i can't lie they do look nice. Their aggressive and makes the lip on the wheel stand out even more. However i will warn that if you ever have a blow out with a stretched sidewall it will not only destroy the wheel but be very dangerous as well. Just a word of caution. Plus if your car is stock height it wont look right anyways. Usually if a car has stretched sidewall tires it's for extra clearance in the wheel wells... AND please trust me on that, if your gonna get the balls to run stretched tires, you better be SLAMMED to the ground...

Finally my question was forgotten.. Well. 9 or 10 inches, 255/45(40) tires, these rims gonna fit the wells or not? Shall I use spacers or stuff? Will the wheels catch body in turns? And what offset to prefer?

255/45/18 will fit with a bit of rubbing occasionally, depending on the ride height of the car. 255/40/18 will definitely fit.

9" at around +36 will fit all the way around. 10" is really too wide for the front, you can't get it tucked under far enough before it hits the spindle. Fine on the rear with around +35 to +40 offset, you will have to check e-brake cable and stab. bar clearance.

I have 18x9's on the front with a 245-45-18 and it's lowered. I don't get any rubbing unless you count when I go over a dip. On the back I have 18x10.5 and 275-40-18 and they barely fit on the wheel that is. I have room in the back fine and it sit's up under the fender in the front and back. You can't ever tell there that wide from the side or back it's all tucked. I would not go any wider then a 9 inch on the front really close to rubbin.

the 10.5's should have a 315 on em...thats what is on my stang...but i have 17x10.5, but you could probably use a 305 or 295 on them...275 is really stretching it on a 10.5

It's lowered with eibach springs and tokico shocks and struts. In the front there is almost no fender gap at all , if i hit a dip in the road it rubs but thats the only time. 305's should fit on the back with out it rubbing. On the inside I still have about 2 inches before it will hit anything. I did run into a problem with the E-Brake rubbing on the wheel. Had to use clamps to keep it in tight to the car so it wouldn't rub.
