dont raise it if you want to stay low. i say lower the front alittle more and add more camber all around, also think about a mild pull as well. this is an easy setup to fit and be low you just have to work at it.

I wanna run the Miro stp-1's. 18x10 +25

I ordered BC BR coilovers already, im just trying to figure out what tire size i need and do i need spacers to clear the brembos? i would like to avoid pulling and rolling the fenders but if i have to i can get it rolled. I dont mind camber also as i will only have this setup just for the summer.

Help is much appreciated.
haha thats my car bro, thats great. i just want to throw it out there that these wheels only come in 5x100 and you sir need 5x114.3. also if you were to run these you would need 5mm spacers up front to clear your brembos. im not sure about the 11 Stis but i had to roll and pull my fenders. i also had to cut out my front fender liners, tuck my wiring harnesses and get in the front fender tubs with a blow torch and hammer to knock them back far enough to where i wouldnt rub. its a big pain to get 18x10s to fit on my body style but on yours im pretty sure just a all around roll and maybe slight pull with -3 camber all around would alow you to go pretty low. im running -3.5f and -4.5r camber with crazy stretched tires. maybe somebody with a 11 Sti can chime in here.

Yeah, I was thinking of just adjusting it similar to the front. Don't really want to add more camber, I don't want having quicker tire wear. Might just add a little negative camber on the rear, probably the same as front from -2 to -2.5.

it would probably help. btw camber doesnt really kill tires its toe. ive been running -4.5 for at least 6months with no excessive tire wear. dont get me wrong it wears faster than no camber but from -2.0 to say -3.0 its not a big difference

That's too bad since I don't think they make 5x114.3.

How about these wheels lol. I wanna know if they would clear the brembos on my 2011 sti. Any spacers needed? Fenders rolled?

And what tire size would look and go well for it.

5x114.3
2x 18x8 +37
2x 18x9 +37

why do you keep looking at staggered wheels?

No way to answer you unless we know the disk type, but you really don't want those wheels. They are narrower than your stock wheels and staggered. You will need so much spacer to make them somewhat "fitted", about 25mm or so.

0* f and -0.5* rear? really? that must feel awful.

other than that, looks good but you could run a LOT more tire of you dial in some camber.

why not more tire? looks like you have more than enough room for 255s.

because as he stated he is a hard parker and wants to be herrafrush yo why does it matter to you so much what somebody does to there car?

i personally would try to fit 18x12s if you could just to say you did, but 18x11s with a low offset will look sick as hell with lots of camber. what wheels are you thinking of getting? cant wait to see it when you do it. im thinking of getting some 18x10.5s or maybe 11s just to see if i can get them to fit on stock body with just alittle pull and alot of camber

i'm pretty sure miro's in that size require at least a 10mm spacer to clear brembos......

i stated in the very first post you aren't welcome here. you haven't posted anything constructive and your questions only serve one purpose. you have all the other threads to post your righteous opinion and hatred in, stay out of here. the others are doing a damn fine job of staying out, for some reason you can't.

your points are still coming.

yes, 18x11 just for the looks, no real reason, but im alright with that uhm but being that i have 5x100 there is not a whole lot of choices for that size, but more than likely i will go with vs-xx but those are a large chunk of change.
