Great choice in wheels. You cannot put bigger lips on them as they are a 2 piece wheel. The lips and barrels are one piece and the face another. You can however reverse mount the face on the rear. This will make the lips look wider.

Look great! Post some pictures once you have them mounted on the vehicle.

Looked into reverse mounting, defiantly considering that. But will it look weird if I reverse mount the rears but not the fronts?
I want that staggered lip look.

Those are terrible. You should sell them to me for a deep discount.

I reverse mounted the rears only on my C4S and they looked great. Kicked it out just enough to fill the wheel wells. The rears are wider, so the extra offset just looks natural.

What are your offsets? I don't think you'll be able to reverse mount to fit a NB, offsets reduces by approx 15mm. It's literally perfect for WB fitment. Take a read thru this thread:

18x8 55mm
18x9.5 50mm
Will that work?

Fronts will be fine, although it will be very aggressive. If you look at the thread pics myself and TripleG have this config.

Really not sure about your rears, I'm inclined to say no. Maybe others can chime in, will 18 x 9.5 et 35 work on a NB?

But I don't want to reverse mount my front, I just prefer to do the rears so I get that staggered look.
