Thanks! Yeah, I really like the slammed look with some camber but not crazy camber. So, I ended up going with some Konig SSM 18x9 +22 wheels. Now for tire sizing. My buddy told me to get a 35 or 45 sidewall tire or else I would rub really bad. Any advice on tire sizing for good fitment?

"subtle" by today's standards -- I like this.
How much did you roll your fenders? Are the inner fender lips completely flat ("l" profile), or do they still have a bit of "v" profile?
I assume (since I see none) that there was no pull of either front or rear fenders?
Thanks! Trying to figure out what I can fit within stock fenders, both rolled and un-rolled...

What about fronts? Rolled but not pulled, too?

Thanks, I appreciate the follow-up!
Where on the fender is it rubbing? Any photos? Is it just the fender liner, or the metal portion of the fender?

Have you since rolled the fenders, and what do you plan to do to mitigate the rubbing?

Are the rears OK so far?

Sorry for the vomit of questions... I'm still in sponge-mode for the FD!
hanks in advance!!

Have you (or anyone) considered taking out the plastic, or is that out of the question?

Can anyone say (roughly) how much space there is between the fender liner and the sheet metal of the fender and inner fender?
i.e. if one were to remove the fender liner, how much travel would we be gaining (before the tire is scraping the metal)?

TIA!

I'm (pleasantly) surprised that Work's O-disks cleared the front calipers... how much clearance do you have? Any close-ups? Thanks!!

hello,
i need help with wheelspacers for my front and rear. actually have no spacers. wheels are 17x8" 44ET with 225x45

iam thinking about 15mm for front and 25mm for rear. will be ok? i have stock suspension with lower TEIN springs. I allready have longer stud from ARP for front. I dont like big camber or rolled fenders. so what you think? will be ok?
thanks

You would need a 25mm spacer in the front and a 35mm in the rear to be anywhere near flush. Your wheel specs just aren't good for the chassis

You could probably run a 15mm spacer in back with stock fenders and stock camber.
Not much you can do up front without rolling the fender lip under- its just likely to catch and pull a crease in the fender if you try to flush it up with a spacer.
If you roll the fender lip under you could probably run a 15mm spacer with stock camber.

Emphasis added above... this has happened to me multiple times (don't ask) in my 180sx... I suggest you heed his advice!!

Iam done, CE28N 17x8 ET 44 with 15mm front and 17x8 ET44 with 25mm on back. stock 94 suspension with Tein lowering spring kit. fits nice, no rubing. no fender rolling. I was try some hard cornering in high speed with no problem. This teins springs are great. front is 63,5cm high and rear 65,5.




i just need set proper alligment left to right and it will be done. i like the pettit one. -0,9 front and -0,5back. maybe a little bit more.

^ Nice wheels, I think the car needs to lower another inch with that setup.

Is there a reason you didn't just go with an 18x10+40 and 265 square setup?

I currently have a set of 18x10+41 TE37's on order and am trying to figure out what size tires to get.

Either 255/35r18 or 285/30r18

With your offsets, the 255’s will be less likely to hit your fender lips. But if you’re at monster truck height then the 285’s can potentially be ok. 265/35 is too tall of a tire for the fronts.
