      Just put these wheels on finally. Going to be transporting the car soon. Most likely not under it's own power due to unforeseen problems.

      After I get home from this work trip im going to adjust the suspension a little and roll & pull the fenders a little. I'm chalking the front right and back left clearance issues up to a poorly adjusted suspension. & the tires are old ones that have been on the wheels since they were on my other car. They'll be getting replaced.

      Wheels: SSR DeColte GP-0's, +54 offset.

      I'll have to measure the adapters. But they're huge.

      Coilovers. Cheapo's put on by previous owner.

      Does anyone know how an 18x8.5 et35 would fit? How would they look? I know most people say 16s are usually the best size for corrados. I was looking at a set of 3sdm 0.06 specifically.

      Yes, they'll fit. Only a 225/35/18 tire will work. Coilovers not needed for clearance. The rear may or may not try to peel the sidewall against the fender lip on the bigger bumps. This can only be eliminated by not taking the car to loowww or shaving the inside of the fender lip between the 10 & 12:00 area.
