Thanks. No, that is just the standard OEM lip. It does have a CF appearance in the photo, but it is just stock.

245/40/18 will fit but it will be tight and you will need 8.5" wide wheels. Your front wheel offset should be in the high 30's and if you ever want to lower your suspension you may need camber plates to avoid rub issues.

Up on The Dragon, no less ! Tire Rack doesn't list the Inspirations anymore, so I'm guessing no.

Desolation, earlier you commented about buying off ebay scaring you. What you will find really scarey is the price of those BBS wheels.............. not for the feint of heart of light of wallet...........but fantastic wheels, I seriously considered BBS and Fiske before settling on HRE.
