that's a horrible reason. I take it you're ok with incorrectly reading speedo and ODO.

What sort of clearance do you have to the front bumper and side skirts while turning the wheel?

Coilovers?

Yes, B/C the speedo is reading with less miles, so when I trade her in to Carmax, she'll have less miles on her. I took out the front splash shields and cut the front parts of the side skirts out and put a couple of screws underneath.

Excuse me? Would you care to tell the truth of what was required to fit?

Looking for some advice. My current setup is wheels 18x9.5 +30et running a 225/40/18 tire. im -1.2 in the front -3 in the back.

photo for reference



How hard would it be to run 265's with no flares? And still tucking tire?

Not possible on the GD chassis tucking tire. even at a reasonable ride height, that would be pretty hard to fit that offset.

I used to have the 18x10 SVN-R's on my car but I got into an accident and broke one of the wheels. The original plan was to replace the broken wheel but since the new Rota RT5's were already in production, I decided to wait for those.

Here's my old set up.




And the new Rota RT5's in 18x10 +30. Sorry for the crappy phone pics. Proper photoshoot coming soon!

Clean! I would paint those gold or a color that pops out, since your car is white and the white and gold looks sexy! But that's my opinion ha

looking to get some 255/40/17 on 9" rims.

How do you guys like the Nitto NT01? Also, how do they compare to Hankook RS3?

Anyone has experience before? thanks in advance.
