Don't ask me about size or offset b/c my lips are sealed. And yes, I know I need to wash my car.

I don't get it?

They don't fit without a wide body kit, no amount of -ve camber or stretched tyres are going to either?

No .... its Mexican ..... well alright I wont reserve this move for just them ... but the ones in my neighborhood proudly display their mexican flag and kicked out wheels.



I mine stick out at the bottom and they sling **** all over my car in turns .... unless you put some mud guards on, you may be unhappy about making that move.

Earl, here are my calculations buddy!

18x9.5 +15 with maybe a 265/35/18. (that's my guess, Enkei offers that and your wheels look exactly the same as the GG evo on evom with the SBC rpf1's)

dunnojack has 18x10 +22 and 3mm spacers, which is +19. He barely pokes with -4 degree's of camber up front.

His wheels are 12.5mm wider than yours, 6.25 on each side. With his offset being 4mm in more, your wheels will stick out 2.25mm more than his. So figure there will definately be some pokage.

-4 camber on a DD!?!?!?

He must go through tires monthly

I am at -2.5 and I am constantly needing new tires ... always ripping them down to the wire/thread on the inner edge (in the front)

Just do it and see what happens... Then get a widebody kit to cover up the damage.

Hehe, those are nice...

You can fit anything if your springs are stiff enough , although if you stick a 315 on that wheel you will probably hit the bumper with the tire when turning.
