Default Is this what you kids call "stance"?

Just got my summer wheels on. Had to roll and slightly pull fenders.

Rears are natural camber, front camber plates are just slightly moved in.

These are 18x9.5 +30 Linea Corse Lemans wrapped in 225/40/18 Yokohama S.Drive tires.

Here's crappy cell phone pics. Nice photos will have to wait until Cleveland decides to have spring.

Heres my suspension setup

It settled a bit after these pics. Not interested in going lower, I daily the car and the tires are already tucked so I'm happy with it. I need the car to be at least a little functional lol

I like the rims but the tire stretching still makes me cringe.

Your tires are still too wide

You know you have the correct size when you decide to buy life insurance due to the risk of blowing out a correctly sized tire for stanced fitment (which yours isn't) whether on the freeway or dyno

Yea.. This is far from "unfunctional". Fenders are rolled and pulled enough I don't rub anywhere. Just gotta watch potholes like you should do anyways.

Take it to an autocross, then report back and let us know how functional it was. It certainly does LOOK good, but I'm sorry to say it unfunctional from a performance standpoint.

I had those size wheels on my car at one point. I ran 245's though, car looks awesome man. You would have no problem running 245's also.

Holy ****, i just realized we have the exact same suspension set up. I dont have the steering rack bushings though.

From a distance the car looks beautiful, I love the first shot. The first shot it what makes me want a bugeye so bad, however, like stated, waaaay to much stretch.

I guess it all depends on what the OP is going for, right? I mean the majority of what you find on a WWW is not always the most functional, track ready set up.
