Would 18x9.5 et40 Nurburgring wheels fit in a squared setup? I was thinking 265/45r18 tires. They work on G8s but didn't see anything comparable after a search on this site. Are G8 fitments good for us? Thanks!

I think that's pushing it....Camaro 20's for the rear are 9" width and 40mm offset, and the tire (typically 275/30-20) collides with the rear opening when loaded/in compression--roll the rear fender(s) time.

Most anything that fits G8 should fit PPV.

Thank you. G8s use them for auto cross events but mixed results on fender roll. Most are running 275s on all fours so thought the 265s might fit. They are pretty light wheels.
