Its gonna wear the insides a bit.. but its going to stick like glue around corners.

I'd like to get my front to 1.5 and keep the rear around 1.0 neg camber.. 0 toe all around. That'll keep the tires reasonably even wear wise and give the car a nice happy sticky round corners.

^ This man is correct. Since this is not my daily, I can afford to have it a little aggressive!
It handles awesome!!

Mine still a daily and probably will be for a long long time lol.. so have to keep it mild. I'll wait to have an alignment done till after I get the bilstiens and regular guy springs on the car. Then it'll be worth aligning. right now I've got neg1.0 up front, neg 0.5 in rear and toe set to 0 f/r. Car sticks good.. but has potential for much more. Esp on 235 tires.

Today though.. I drove it to work.. and enjoyed it.

Wanted to see how much it would wear as to how far I can go when I do mine on the BC coilovers...

I'm jealous of the 235's forsure!

2011 wheels on 2010 ftw. They're almost dead on flush, 17x8 and lighter than my factory 2010 wheels are. I could probably get away with squeezing a 245 onto those wheels if I wanted to. 235's fit perfect with lots of clearance. As for going low, the 3/4 drop that the rg springs give is actually more than I'd prefer but I know it'll look/work really well. Besides, cant find any sporty rated springs at or near factory height... I already have 08 sti springs up front now to bring the nose down and level the car.

Do you have pictures of your car with the 2011 wheels? Any with the stock ride height? I'd love to see how that combo looks.

18x8.5 +48 offset. No fender mods at all. Only hits the underside of the fender liner over big bumps because its lowered on BC coilovers.

That didn't make sense. However, I'm totally jealous of your FMIC!

I installed some mad USDM stickers to my sticker window~. One is 4X4 which is good for a solid 16 HP, and a cobb sticker for another 4hp.

Installed spt exhaust yesterday and had a local tint guy install my tail light overlays. Removed the overlays today since the guy did such a ****ty job on them.
