Exactiy what does the offset say?
18+inch offset doesn't sound right.

Try looking here

Your offset is the distence from the center of the rim, to the mounting surface.
And 18+inches offset means your rim would hang out from the mounting surface 18 inches.

Alot of KMC wheels are + offset wheels, not sure why. Im guessing your refering to 18mm not 18" just a hunch lol.
I think you typically need anywhere from -6 to -12 offset so it would be almost 1" from where your at not to where you need to be

If they are the ones that screwed up make them fix it. Dont let them off the hook until they make it right.

Just to answer your question, my 285's are 11.3 inches wide and I run a +18 offset XD wheel. So, you are may need a 1" minimum width spacer, which seems wayyyy too thick to run safely.

And I agree...the shop should make this right.
