Cool setup. Don't see a lot of those pana's on FDs stateside. Underrated setup.

I have that same wheel on the front of my car 18x9.5 +22 and I put a 245/35/18 Yokohama Advan tire on it. I donít have any rubbing but it sticks out about an inch. I am going wide body so itís fine. But you will likely want like a +45ish offset for the front. I have a 10.5 in the rear so canít really comment on the fit for square.

I have two sets of 19" front wheels (19x10 +30 w/235/30's is not on the car, but will be eventually with small spacer) ... Currently on the 7 in the pics: (Front) 19x9 +30 with 1" spacer. 215/35's. Knight Sports +25mm front fenders. (Rear) 20x10.5 +23 w/ 245/30's. Rear fenders are lightly pulled, and flattened lips.

I changed it up by painting my Forgestar's Gold last season and 285/30-18 were on sale, so I ended up a bit narrower.
Here are a couple pics by a_aron_photo on Instagram

Have air suspension;
Since I don't have that fancy stuff I had to use dynamic load transfer to try to make it look lower

Hey guys. Just picked up my FD3S. I was thinking of running 18x9.5 +20s all around. Would this work? Also planning to be static and really low with a high spring rate to keep from bouncing around too much. Also, what is the max camber adjustment on the FD? Thank you!

(Will not be a racecar, more of a cruiser/street car)

you will fit them in the rear with a fender roll but fitting them under the stock front fenders will be a challenge.

Should I look for Over fenders? Or just run stock with rolled fenders or +25 to +35 offset in the front?

i'd recommend reading back a few pages in this thread, there is alot of good information/chat/photos of people likely asking about similar setups or running them.

+35 offset in the front would probably be ideal if you want any kind of driveability with the stock metal fenders.

Thanks! If you've ever seen the Unripe TV FD RX-7 video on YouTube, that's the kind of fitment I'm looking for without running the crazy 5 or more degrees of camber. I hope to run 3 degrees at most. No more than that.

If you're running -3 degrees of camber up front you'd probably get away with +20. I had 9.5 +22 and they would have fit on just rolled fenders I believe and not even with crazy camber, maybe like -1. To be safe I'd probably try to get +25 though if you can.

So, I scratched those +20 wheels off my list. I found the same style wheels I want in a +32 and figured I could just use a spacers to get the fitment I want. Is the front suspension really adjustable to -3 camber?

Actually that's a good point, I doubt it does haha. Maybe, but I'd think probably closer to about -2 at the most. But I could be wrong.

If you are at a performance ride height of ~25 1/2" to the top of the fender arch (about an inch lower than stock?) then the most you can get is around -2.4 deg camber up front.

If you are slammed to a good looking ride height you can get over -3 degrees camber up front static because of the camber gain in the suspension.
