      really? I'm running 18x8 ET-48 here, 225/40 tires.. but with 10mm spacers up front (so it's ET-38 up front).. 24" FTG.. and I have no fender rubbing at all. I do rub on my front fender liners once in a while (this is with the 'fender liner mod', where the top-front screw mount is cut out), and the top of the fender liners in that area are fairly chewed up, but this is after 2.5 years (around 70k miles) of driving at this height, so that's to be expected.

      18x8.5 +36 with a 225/40/18 Falken 512 ( tires run not very wide so they compare to 215/40/18)
      H&R Ultra Lows
      rear is all the way up and the front and about half way down, ride is amazing on these.
      Front fenders slightly rolled, fender screw mod and the fender tap pushed up.

      I was shocked to see the lip pulled down, too. It was only in a few isolated spots, so maybe it happened going into odd-angled parking lots or something. As you would expect, there is no noticeable rubbing while driving normally other than hard turns. I have the screw out, but haven't done anything with the tab or liner yet so I'm certain I rub on that when I push it. I'd been worried about the rears for the last few weeks until I saw this damage.

      I was doing some research yesterday and came across others that have bent the fender lips with similar wheel specs, so I guess it happens. My Goals have never looked sadder than they do now after I got used to having proper fitting wheels for a few weeks.

      well.. I take that back. The other day I was looking at my car and noticed that my left-front fender has been pulled down a little by the tire. So, after a good 75k miles at this ride height I will definitely be rolling my fenders to keep from tearing things up further

      Don't listen to this man. jk


      But for real, you should always use ample heat, your car is brand new, paint is a bit more giving.

      Toffee brown would have been my go to color if it had been availble on the 2010 models. That toffee brown color is the **** (no pun intendedish).

      yeah, I'm very happy with the color choice. It looks awesome in the sunlight

      I know I've posted these in some other threads, but oh well.
      excuse the lack of fitment/stance, been busy with school/house/work to finally get the kinesis on.

      Looking real sharp. Do you have a pano roof with that fairing?
      And I would've also gone with the brown and beige interior If my dealer had it.

      I've since sold the Raderwerk STP3's and preordered Klutch S14s which should be on in a few weeks.


      I freakin love this car.
      do you have a picture of the side of the car? i really like these wheels but what to see what the side profile looks like. and i am still debating between 18 and 19 inch rims. In some pics 18's look small, and in some pics 18's look just right. I don't know why but I think tire size has something to do with it .

      ^ tire size and the drop of the car have everything to do with the size of the rims. I've seen 17's look perfect with the right drop and tire size.

      Nothing wrong with stock wheels. It's nice to see the stance with stock wheels.
