I had my fronts set back to factory spec and my rears ended up being left at 1 degree or so. My tires were fine.

Good to see someone else with Type F's. Love them and the silver looks really good. You lowering the car soon? I see you already have the rears rolled and slightly pulled but still at, what seems to be, stock height.

looks like fun Sami! A couple of questions:

1) Did that wheel come stock? I thought the flat bottoms were only on a JDM special version.

2) What gauges do you have? (what they measure)

looks like a great time!

She's actually lowered with Eibach springs. Roughly an inch all around. Rears are rolled but that is all. I noticed when I switched to the 255/35 tires, they're a bit smaller in overall diameter which made the gap a bit more, hence the look of stock height. Maybe a 255/40 or 265/35 will fix that. It does bother me and I don't wanna have to get coilovers just to reduce the fender gap. Any suggestions?

Without going coils you can only go so low until you open up another can of worms and have to deal with an alignment. Different springs on 2011 stock suspension would do it but thats a lot of hassle finding and switching parts. Just drive the car as is. It looks good and they dont look as high in person, lol.

Thx for the suggestion, it did bother me soon as I switched to the SSRs and summer tires. It didn't look as low as before and now that you noticed it to, then the more it is bothering me lol. But yeah I'll keep it as is for now n maybe get coilovers in the future hehe

If you want to reduce wheel gap without going lower, get larger diameter tires. I think when my 225/40/18s are ready to be replaced, I'll get some 245/40/18s

Yeah that's what I was thinking too. When my 255/35/18s go bald, either switching to 255/40 or 265/35. I just hope I don't come across any rubbing issues. My rears are already rolled just worried they're not rolled enough lol.

Thanks!

I got the wheel from:

http://www.rallysportdirect.com/Prov...-STI-2008-2011

Gauges are: turbo boost, oil temp + pressure, water temp, wideband, exchanust gas temp, fuel pressure and voltage.
