The offset would be +25.

Reverse mounting lowers it by 25MM.

18x8 +25, doens't fit too well with a big tire. Biggest is a 205/40/18, or you'd want a 215/35/18.

If you're going to be low, makes ite ven more difficult.

Stretch tire/camber in the rear, and it'll fit.

IMHO, 205/40/18, Max Camber Front, near max camber rear, and they'll fit alright. Doubt you'll be low enough to warrant a 215/35/18 anyways.

Thanks for the useful information but I think I will pass on reverse mounting them, maybe just get new bolts (gold)

This information is conflicting, if it lowers the offset by 25mm then it would make the wheels +15 as the starting offset is +40. I think you are right about the final offset though, 15mm difference makes way more sense, as there is no way the faces are an inch thick, but 15mm sounds right. Either way, being that OP was worried about the offsets of his other wheels, running them as is, is a good choice.

Yeah. No way it's 25mm from reverse mounting.
