Do you think the rears can be corrected by Cusco arms, or will I have to go with Whiteline or Purple upper camber adjusters?

Cusco isn't the only company who makes aftermarket (adj.) lower control arms. GTSPEC, Agency Power...etc make some as well.

I run the Whiteline adj. Rear Camber Bushings Kit for the time being. Gonna invest in some control arms soon though. Either one will get you the camber you need to clear those fenders.

18x10 +10 in 5x100. Our employee was supposed to run these on his 2004 STI but decided otherwise. These bad boys would go well with flares.

Agree with everyone else these are awkward specs, a little too much poke to easily run on a 2011+ but doable with a skinny tire and or camber arms but too narrow to run on a scoob with flares, even 10.5 is pushing it.

The width of the rim doesn't justify filling out flares, its the offset. Space it to 0 or -10 it would be perfect.

Actually it is both the width and offset. The flare is approx 60mm wide.

18x10 looks weird with flares. Even if you had a low negative offset.

It does not match cause it'd look too skinny.

People with Karlton flares should only be using 10.5 +15 and more aggressive.

Any other spec should be banned and not allowed to buy flares lol

pretty tough to go more than 265 (though with an 8.5 you'd go 255) on the stock GD fenders.

though i just found some 17x10's i can have in pretty much any offset i want (+72, can just run a spacer to whatever offset)

The wheels are +15. Added a 5mm spacer = +10

Sorry if the way I worded it was confusing.

Nope, still have them. If I can't sell them I will just end up using them as my Autocross wheels or something.

These were literally the last set of RG-Ds that Mackin had in the country in this size. Had to jump on them or end up waiting months for them to take the slow boat over.
