Thanks for sharing your experience. I'm trying to stick with relatively stock camber settings, i.e. nothing beyond -3, and that may be pushing it. I don't really have intentions of running larger brakes in the future, so I'm not sure if I should "future proof" my offset when ordering the wheels. Maybe an upgrade to the '04-'07 four pots. Not even sure if that's a viable swap; still new to these later generations.
What I'm most concerned about right now is good fitment without rubbing in the desired 18x10 size, and either 265/40/18 or 275/35/18 tires. I've gone through the 19x10 thread, and though the idea has popped in my head, I've decided it's ultimately too big a hassle to go an extra inch in diameter.
