I drive a 2012 chevy cruze lt 5x105 bolt pattern. and im wanting to do a wheel and tire setup on my car. I want to do an 18x9.5 rim with a 35offset and a 215/40/18 tire can this be possible . i want a flush look but not poke past the fender like hella-fail. please let me know if this an be done and or what others have done. Bc wheels for a cruze are hard to find due to limited companies making them. If not what about a perfect setup with adapter plates. Just can anyone lead me into a great setup to give me this look. guide me please.

I will tell you no. 215/40 is too small in every direction. And 9.5 is pointless width for a wheel on this car. The tire will be too stretched for the wheel width and the bead could roll out in an aggressive maneuver.

18x8 is great. The better tire size there is 225/45 or 245/40 depending on your preference. Those will be the correct diameter for you to have an accurate speedometer.

18x9.5 requires an offset lower than +28 in order to fit in the front, as for the rear, +35 will be fine.

As for tire choice, 215 is too small unless your plan is excessive stretch. My recommendation would either be a 225, or 235 depending on how much stretch you want. 235 will have a minor stretch, 225 will have a decent stretch.
