      Has anyone here ever run Raceland USA Coils?
      The price is cheap.. VERY cheap.. and they don't get that many bad reviews.. any advice as far as a budget set of coils?
      I dont want to pay 600+ for coils (retarded i know) I was just going to get some weitecs until i saw them yesterday

      he has 18x8 et35 with 215.35.18 tires. I don't think he rubs to much maybe only while turning at full turn. He is lower since this pic too i think

      I do not know. The specs are impossible to find online. im going to have to unmount the wheel and look behind.
      They say it has to be between 30 and 35 mm.
      I can always pick up some spacers for it

      Yeah from what I hear people with a 35mm run into some rubbing problems but you'll have to ask some mkv guys about that.

      Travis, you will definitely rub with a 35offset. My RH's are 18x8 et35 and it rubs like crazy, I adjusted the toe and it helped but still rubbed. Looks awesome though.

      Would 30 be safer? Judging from memory, the offset is closer to 0 than 35. But i could also be pretty dumb in assuming that.
      I think it is a 20 or 25...
      Im gonna run by Eurowise and get them removed to put my steelies back on while they are getting powdered. Ill know then what it is. But say the offset is 25. should i just leave it? or space it out to be around 30

      lower the number, greater the poke, and lol, a 35 offset is definitly do able, how wide are they? you may have to run a 215 or a 205 as opposed to the usual 225.

      So would a person with a 8" wide, 44 offset wheel be okay?
      Thanks!

      DEFINITELY unless you run some ridiculous tires.
      I'm running 9.5" on the back but stretching 225/40's and do NOT rub.
      Some tires stretch better than others, and some are just beefy even though the sizes are the same...so it really varies, but 8" and 44 offset I dont think you'd have any issues if you stick with a 225/40 or lower...

      nope, not convinced they go low enough without cutting the dead coils.
