It all depends on the offset of the rims, i had 18x8's on my car, and i have the PSS9's on, and i didn't rub with the 18's, cause i believe they had a 40+ offset, something like that, can't remember now!
But when i slapped on a set of E46 16's, with smaller tires, i ended up rubbin due to the offset of the rim!

I will end up getting the M parallels again just because they look so nice on my car but this time in chrome.

the specs are:

18x8
120 x 5 lugs
offset 35mm

I hope I don't need them

Tough call. What brand of tires are you running? My bet is that you will need some 10mm spacers for the front to clear. The company that sold you the FKs should have asked you about this...

I suggest you get a pair of 10mm FK spacers and the correct length bolts to go with them. You don't want to install the suspension and find you can't drive home 'cause the tires contact the spring or adj. collars
