Can anyone confirm if 18x7.5 wheel with a +45 offset will fit front and rear on an 88 GT? If so what would be a good tire size? 215 40 18 ?

Have you done a search for the tire guide? It will give you an idea of all the offests for your car.

Here is what a quick search pulled up Offest Chart

You should be ok on the rear. You can go up on section width on the tire on the rear with no issues.
There is room for a lot of tire on the rear of an 88.

Ok I'm looking at 245/40/18 for the rear and 215/4018 for the front sound about right? Or would 225/40/18 work better on the front? For wheel size I'm looking at 18 with either a +40 or +45 offset. I don't want the tires sticking out from the fenders. So would the +45 tuck them in more?

I run 17x8s with a 35 offset on the rear of my 88. (235/45)
17x7 with 48 offset on the front. (215/45)

The rears tend to stick out, jsut a smidge, but I like it that way.


Here's a sort-of closeup of the rear.

The rears stick out a bit on the 88 with the stock lace wheels.

To the OP, why not go up to a 45 aspect ratio? They will look better, ride a bit better and fill the wheel wells better.
