    The tires are Goodyear Eagle F1s size 245/40R18.

    Naturally, my salesperson said they would fit just fine (although, he said the front tires may hang out past the wheel well an 1/8").

    What do you think?
    It's going to be close. The wheels will stick out 1.13" farther than stock wheels (17" wheels that is), or almost 1/2" farther out than my wheels currently, which are almost flush. I think they may stick out more than you'd like - in the front that is. I'd change your order to 225/45R18 on 7.5" rims (I think they make them) in front and 255/40R18 on 8.5" in the rear, that is if it were me! But that's just me (I'm planning to go stagger soon). The tires are *short* enough not to rub probably, but I'd bet they stick out past the wheel well...

Forged might be more. Check them out at www.mc2ing.com.
    so where can i check out the entire line of mc2 wheels? All i see is the forged wheels for them. I love the fz3. How much are the fz3 going for?

    Nope, sorry. I know the regular wheels cost about $1900 for wheels and tires so the forged ones may be a little more.
