Silver looks awesome. Is that photoshop?

Yes - these are renderings/visualizations of the TE37SL concave-spec 18x9.5 +45 (flush fitment) for the FL5 platform, on an approx ~1" drop!

So 265/40/18 +45 will fit with no rubbing or better to do 35 series?

265/35/18 is more common and more accessible of a size to order. 265/40 should fit as well without issue! As will a 255/35/18 + 255/40/18.

Here are photos of the exact wheel in this 18x9.5 +45 configuration. Please note: Only the TE37SL variant is concave - The Te37 Saga S-Plus/Ultra/and other Te37 models are not this concave at all with this sizing.

The tires on these renderings seem too small to be on 18's, they look more similar to 19's to me. Maybe it's just because the car is dumped, I don't know. I'd be interested to see some cars on ZE40's that's what I'm leaning towards as much as I love TE's, I think they may suite this car a little more.

These were rendered with MP4S + A052 in 265/35/18 (instead of a 40 sidewall). We scaled the wheels down to 18" so this should be how they look - but they may appear even smaller due to the lowered height of the car. The 10-spoke ZE40's + CE28's should look very fitting on the FL5 and add a bit of aggressive styling to an already subtle car.

Awesome, thanks for the update. I'd love to see what some 19's look like too!

Do you think a 275/30/19 tire not lowered will fit the FL5 ok? Ok, meaning no rubs.
Likely will be a bit bubble/oversized on the OE 19's. On the aftermarket side, ideally you would want a 10" wide wheel but this may still rub on the inside/outside. We recommend going 18's to maximize ride quality + running a 265/35/18 or 265/40/18 to fill out the wheel well with no rubbing.
