XXR wheels. What size spacers?

I sold my ridler wheels which I shouldn't have. I am looking to purchase a set of XXR 521 wheels. I am looking to get XXR to help sell my car. I am confused to what spacer size to get. any help would be greatly appreciated.
My last wheels
front wheels :18X8 front with 4.5 BS 225/40/18
Rear wheels: 18X9.5 Rear with 5.5 BS: 255/45/18

I am looking at these:

XXR-521 18X8.5/10 5x114.3/120 ET25/25 Black Machined Lip wheels fit Toyota Supra | eBay

18x8.5 / 18x10 offset is 25/25

or these

18x8.5 XXR 521 5x100/5x114.3 35 Flat Black Wheel New set(4) | eBay

18x8.5 all 4 with +35mm offset.

Re: XXR wheels. What size spacers?

Why not go back with Ridlers again? You know they fit. Don't want to try to sell a car with new wheels that may rub if you don't get the correct spacers, assuming you need spacers in the first place and if you are changing wheels I'd get some for which you don't need spacers as some buyers may not like spacers. Unless it's up on blocks, why not sell it with the wheels it has on it now and negotiate a price with a wheel cost adjustment if the buyer doesn't like the wheels on it now? Who knows, you may find a buyer who wants an old school look or something else and won't want the new wheels you are considering. Just a thought...

Those wheels will not fit, they are the wrong bolt center.... Should be 5x4.75"

Re: XXR wheels. What size spacers?

I agree with Chris and Don, but if you are going to use spacers, you can use billet wheel adapters instead. They space the wheel out and change the bolt pattern from what you have (5x4.75) to what you want (5x120 or 5x114.3).

Assuming your rear end is stock width and your front brakes don't push the hubs further out than stock, you ideally want a +6mm offset. To achieve that, take the offset of the wheel you want to buy and subtract the offset you need. i.e. if you want +25mm offset wheels, subtract 6 and you need a 19mm spacer/adapter. If you want a +35mm wheel, you'll need a 29mm spacer/adapter. I think the smallest wheel adapter I've seen is 1", which is 25.4mm.

So I'd probably lean towards a +35 offset wheel, and run a 30mm adapter if you can find one. You can have them custom made, but quality wheel adapters are expensive, and the prospective buyer may not trust wheel spacers/adapters since they have gotten bad press in the past. It may just be cheaper to go back to the Ridlers that you already had.

Re: XXR wheels. What size spacers?

If the car is mostly original, get some original Rallys and some used tires if you are going to sell it. At the Carolina Club first gen Camaros at Charlotte Autofare the majority of the cars had Rallys, 2 pro street had the 17" Rallys! I bought some for a car on craiglist and some very good used firestone tires. $150 for the wheels and $80 for the tires. Just a thought.

Re: XXR wheels. What size spacers?

You guy bring up good points. I decided on US mag U111 or Ridler 650. 18x8 front and 18x8 in the rear. Only thing I was thinking is the 18x8 rears for both are 4.5 ".. I would just use a little spacer to put it right where I need it. I have ARP studs in the rear as well.
