Front angled, side view, up close rear, and top view rear. Could use a good wash, and I'm no professional photographer, but here you go.

That looks great you could really run it like that or on springs, but itíll look even better with coils.

Thanks!
A .8-1Ē drop would be perfect for me which is why i was originally going to just do RCE yellow. But thinking about tein flex A coils now.
With front lip, side skirts, and rear diffuser car has a good 1Ē less ground clearance all around. Already scraped underside of front lip a couple times without even noticing/hearing.

Looks great, I love the color combo. So currently I just got in some new rims, Avid.1 Av20 (Hyper Black) 18x9.5 +38. I'm currently in the look for some tires, probably some firestones 245/40r18. I'm in stock suspension and I'm confident it will fit, just one last check before I try, any thoughts on fitment at full turn?

I know 235/40 fits that wheel on stock suspension and Iím sure 225/40 too but with a stretch. Really not sure about 245/35

Yea I'm not trying to stretch to hard. I've seen on fitment industries of some people fitting. Just slightly worried untill I get them on and try it.

Many use 245/35/18 on 18x9.5, what's the issue?

I assumed the stock suspension and +38 offset. I know that the +35 fits that setup, but didnít know about the +38

Will this fit?

I recently installed TEIN coilovers and am looking for a new setup for a daily driver. I'm not sure which size to go with and the offset but I was looking more towards a meatier track style setup with a slight bit of camber. Car is near about 200whp so slightly better than stock so I feel comfortable going wider. Would a 17x8.5 +35 work? not too sure on how to measure for wheel fitment. Thanks

Yes, that will work fine with no issues. A 17x8 +35 on a 1" drop is flush so depending on how low you are you should be pretty much flush as well.

I'm lowered on TRD springs no more than an inch, finally looking into spacers to fill things out. I have 7.5 wide 17's in a +35 offset. Would 20/25mm be too much? I figure running simple 5mm spacers won't really get me anywhere.

IMO, that's absolutely perfect. Here are 17x8 +15 (they poke 6mm more than a 17x7.5 +15.

Thanks. When people suggest extended studs is that for spacers that don't have their own additional studs?
Also do you just simple add the offset with the spacer measurements? So +35 offset + 25mm spacer would be a +10 offset?

Yes. Extended studs are for spacers without additional studs. Also, they are almost always thinner than 20mm.

If your wheels do not have "pockets" like the green arrows are pointing to, you will have to choose to: 1) use 25mm spacers instead. 2)Shave 5mm off the studs (iv'e done this - I do not recommend) 3) Use extended studs with a little bit thinner spacers. Most wheels have pockets, so you should be ok. It is something to check out though.



When a twin is lowered around 1" on springs, it will usually add around -1.6 to -2.2 of natural rear camber. Lowering the car will not add a noticeable amount of camber in the front though. You will need a set of camber bolts for the front. ( or two sets...)

Offset is measured from the center of the wheel in mm. If the hub is closer to the face it will have a positive offset. If a wheel has a wide lip it usually has an offset close to zero. If a wheel is all lip, it will have a negative offset. This tool is great! enter your existing setup and your desired setup. It will calculate the difference. https://www.willtheyfit.com/

A 17x7.5 +35 wheel with a 20mm spacers brings the wheels hub 20mm closer to a zero offset. This makes it +15 offset. Or 15mm from the center of the wheel.

My old setup was very close to what you are getting. I had 18x8 +45 with 25mm spacers and 215/40/18 tires. I was lowered on Eibach proKit springs 1" and had one set of camber bolts in the front. Your 17x7.5 +15 will poke 1.3mm more than my car's front wheel, in the pic below. (my rear is a 18x9 +42 witha 12mm spacer in this pic. tire is 245/35/18)





Cheers!
