And what do you mean by "angle inward"? As in camber?
The tire sidewalls would have a tiny bit of stretch to them, instead of being straight up and down

I'd probably end up running 18x9, but I do like the look of a bit of stretch.

Last question and I'll stop bothering you lol Why does the red top plate in your picture seem misaligned from the actual bag? It almost seems as though the bag has been shifted inwards towards the wheel well and is up against the wheel well.

No bother at all

The top hats are adjustable for camber and you can adjust how they sit

Ah, I completely forgot. Do your wheels automatically tuck in from camber when you drop the car to it's lowest setting? If so, how does it do that?

Update:

265/35/18 DOES NOT FIT with +33 lol

Under heavy compression the tire contacted the bag very slightly and wore into it. I've since replaced the air spring (VERY cheap and VERY easy to replace), and ordered 30mm wider fenders + spacers. Lesson learned, and I hope others learn from it haha.

For what it's worth, Air Lift recommends 1/2" clearance between the bag and tire to allow for expanding.

I am running 18x9+35 squared on 245/40 and 265/35


Am I fucked clearance wise? I am scared to make the two hour drive for install and then my wheels don't fit back on....

I meant that as a warning for fronts. I think you'll be ok with 245 as long as your offset is fine

You should be fine, just make sure you're not running camber bolts because it will push the strut into the tire.

The bag touching your tire while aired all the way out isn't that big of a deal. it's the air bag touching the tire while it's inflated and you're moving that's the issue.

glad you told me that bro, as I AM running camber bolts (though not sure their doing jack shit lol )


I will heed your advice. Did you have to pull/roll fenders? I am hoping to not have to but I am asking for a perfect world... I know....

+35 with 245 should be fine without a roll, but test clearance BEFORE you calibrate your setup. Calibration will drop it to 0psi and it might wreck some shit lol

Also just a warning, if you plan on maxing camber in the front, there is a bolt coming in from the engine bay on the drivers side that the bag will rub on and eventually pop. Learned from experience lol. Shaved it down seemed to fix that problem

I know this thread is mostly concerned with front tire issues, but on the back of the car do you run aftermarket lower control arms to achieve camber to tuck the wheel? If so what brand do you recommend?
