@bobsacamenoh... You wanted pics of how those wheels turned out. They look fresh to death man, thanks again.
Nice mang! 255 tires all around? How much of a drop did you do?? 35mm?

Thanks man! I'm rocking BBS CH-R 18x8 + 38. with PSS 225's all around. Didn't break out the tape as I am max low in the front and about 12mm higher in the back. Now that it's broken in a bit though I'm going to raise it by around 10mm because I'm getting a tiny bit of rubbing on the front tires if I hit a bump while cornering... I also think I'll put 10-20mm adapters in the rear because I love the small amount of front poke I have but the huge rear tuck drives my eyes crazy. haha

I want to say 50mm or 2in. Somewhere right around that mark haha, feel free to correct me if I'm wrong... I was a little distracted by the Superbowl when I installed them.

For me, Im doing this when I get my ride:

18x9.5 Rota Grid (5x100/e38/73)

ST Suspension Coils

SPC Performance Adjustable LCA

And wheels:

255.35.18 All around

Thats all I would need, I thought I would need camber bolts in the front, but they are adjustable just like the KW's so Im getting the LCA for the rears. What do you think? Pretty sick huh

Thanks man, My roommate and I just worked through the commercials and halftime. Granted it took all day to do it that way, but we got it done... Driving it to the alignment shop the next day it was clunking something fierce in the rear, and I was sure I had messed something up. Turns out I just needed and extra turn or two on the top mount. So all in all no problems.

ST Coilovers do look good...

Here was my setup on ST Coils, dropped 1.25" on 18x9 +40 with 245/40/18.
Not quite the same as yours-but close, and it should look damn sick.
Also, I do NOT have adjustable rear arms (yet) and just from the drop I'm at -2.5 on the rear for camber...I've been like that for 15k, and have had very very little camber wear-its been pretty darn even. Im at 0 toe, btw.

The wheels will fit nicely with that +38 offset, mild poke in the front and tuck in the rear. I'm not sure what you mean by the fronts being adjustable, if you are planning on keeping the OEM top mounts then I would recommend putting a camber bolt up front. I have the SPC bolt in the front. If you are going to put in something like the Vorshlag top mounts then you wont need anything else. Do some checking around to see what kind of camber you will need to be running up front to fit that wheel/tire combo without rubbing or just head over the the will-it-fit thread because they have literally every combination already posted..

And for the rear depending on what you are going for, you might not even need the LCA. The natural camber from drop is pretty tame and a competent alignment shop can get you back in spec. That said, it wouldn't hurt and might make future modifications less of a hassle.

How about these:

SPC Performance Cam bolts

Would that work for the front? Thats all I would need right?

Edit:

From what I heard, I can run that without needed any camber bolts in the front

^^What he said. Our cars are really easy to work on, and often times you can get away with adding a part at a time. So cars you'd have to rip out and replace everything all at once to get it all to fit right, i.e. brakes, susp, lca, mounts, bushings, rods, etc... But on ours you can start pretty much anywhere. LCA's are sick yea, but depending on what you're wanting out of your car you may be better off putting that $300-$1000 elsewhere to start.

I'm running that exact bolt in the lower strut hole. Maybe you can get away with not having it, I just threw them in and called it a day. Once I get my new top mounts I'll pull it back out.

With just using the adjustment slot on the ST coil for the fronts, I was able to get about -1.5...

but as @Special_K said, this car is great since you can add-on as you go.
