Default TE37SL's....Oh yes they WILL fit!!

Just thought I would post this up as I am about to embark on something that not a lot of people have a whole lot of confidence in. I am going to put 18x10.5 +22 TE37SL on my car with a 255/35 tire. The way I see it is I currently have a set of 18x10.5 +30 wheels on now with a 245/40...yes it is a little stretched but not half as bad as I figured they would be. Also I am not running very much more than stock camber as I am only at -2.0 in front and -2.2 in the rear. So to put it into perspective I really only have to clear another 8mm but since I am going with a lower and wider tire I do believe this will be very manageable. Maybe a tad bit more camber but with the 255's I should have no problem with the contact patch!! Please let me know what you think!! I am always open to constructive criticism!

Here are a few crappy pics of the wheels:

great?

there are several people that have already done these wheels, and you are about to experience what it's like to pull .

and btw, you need to clear an extra 18mm. your tire is 10mm wider than what you currently have.

well he's certainly going for hella-stretched look

considering it's an 11 sti sedan (widebody) i think i'd be getting some 285's.

The 245's I have now on 18x10.5's isn't ridiculously stretched...they are stretched but it is not that bad.
