      Luke, Im pretty sure an 18x9.5 et 45 is going to sit pretty much where you need it. You might want like an 7mm spacer on the rear and 3-5 on the front. I think anything more than that and your going to have poke out back. Im not an expert on bagged cars though so not positive on that.

      my pictures at the top are 17x9.5 et39 and -4.3 degrees of camber.

      I would use a 5 mm spacer for what you want.

      It's actually et44 but I run a 5mm spacer to clear the shock...and it still hits.

      Cone that rear looks pretty perfect but I want to be lower with more camber The front might need a small spacer.

      I've seen 215-35 on 9.5 and it's a bit more stretch than I want. Would a 40 make it better or should I jump up to a 225? I do want a bit of stretch.

      I went with 45 just for comfort

      I agree 215/40 would be perfect imo. I have a 215/40 on my 8.5 and its barely stretched but is definitely not square like a 225 would be.

      whelp, question for all wheel whores

      trying to figure out a good offset and tire size for some new wheels i wanna have made. I'm going to go with Rotiform's 3 piece monolook IND.. want to have 19x9 in the front and 19x10 in the rear if possible

      What offset do i need to go with for front and rear? also tire size would be great help.

      Thanks in advance

      I would highly suggest running 18s et38 for the rear either way

      This is another shot of the back side. 215/40/18 on 18x9.5 with 3 degrees of negative camber. The front wheel was rebuilt with bigger lips so I didn't use a spacer on first fitment.

      Got the wheels on tonight, now its time to dial in the height

      Currently sitting at 24.25" all around, might bring it down another half inch.

      Sorry the the cell pics

      Just after adjusting the coils (not settled)

      This was only a test fit, coilovers were ordered last week, will update when it has more low.



      I don't plan on going too low with this since its a 4dr daily, but ~2.2" or so should do the trick.



      Just finished putting the coilovers on, doesn't rub with 4 people and a full tank, which is what I was going for (it's my daily). Perfect daily height for me. Couldn't be happier

      I'll take some better pictures with my nikon soon.

      It will settle quite a bit though in the next 500 miles, so adjust it then if anything.
