Do 18"x10" +38 not fit in the front of a FD?

https://www.rx7club.com/suspension-w...1/#post9872092

According to the guide above, 18"x10" +38 would not fit in the front of the FD. Has anyone been able to back this up? My fenders are already rolled and I'm running coilovers.

(I'm considering the more budget friendly Enkei RPF's, btw)

with a little camber and rolled fenders they do fit. camber is -1.8 degrees or so, 265/35/18 tires.

Taken from the XD fit thread 2 below yours:

My street wheels shown are 18x10+38 front and rear. 255/35-18 front and 275/35-18 rear.

Both front and rear fenders are rolled but not pulled. You should be fine and can adjust camber and ride heights to suit your setup. I was running about -2 degrees camber up front.

Yeah, I ran 18x10.5 +38 just fine up front with rolled fender lips and max camber-

but +38 offset only supports max 265/35-18 tire width.
