Please read the stickies.

Rolling, pulling, trimming the rear bumper and bumper bracket, coilovers with f+r camber plates, most likely additional camber bolts in the rears.

This fitment will not work with stock suspension, or most struts and spring combos.

Lol at buying one of the most aggressive wheel setups common on our cars without any idea what work it will take.

You sir, are dumb. Sorry but you're dumb. Sell the wheels or get coilovers.

You will need coils, roll, heavy pull, and camber at -3 at a minimum before this will work

I feel like I have déjà vu.

OP: Don't listen to those guys. They fit fine.

I don't know about the dumb part.....but otherwise, listen to these guys. They know what they are talk talking about.

I just got rid of a fairly aggressive set up on my GR sedan and that needed some work to fit....but no where near what you will need on a 2007 with a +18 18x10.

On my GR I had 18x10.5 +30 with a 245 ( was going to use 255 if I kept them) and a rear roll, coilovers, rear lower control arms, camber plates and bolts running -3 all around....and that's on a GR with a less aggressive wheel.....less aggressive by a few millimeters, but nonetheless, less aggressive.

Take a look for yourself.....http://www.willtheyfit.com

Good luck either way.

I had 10.5 +22 with a 245/35 which is the same as a 10 +16 on a 235/35 and that's 2mm more poke and I have a heavy pull in the rear as well as shaved the inner well, rolled fronts, and -4* all around give or take 0.3*.Tucking tire or not that gets them flush and not silly looking.

To reach those camber levels you pretty much need coilovers because a 10 +18 and that much camber from bolts will put your wheel really close or on your spring perch probably

225 is the proper tire in order to fit this combination. probably 80 percent of the people who are doing it use this exact combination. It may be frowned upon but its a certain look he is after here..
Contact me if you have any more questions OP. or Wirtz he also would know..


I ran bc br coilovers with full camber plates and smaller camber bolts for a while..
I now am on Airlift performance Airride with full camber plates .

another quick tip would be to check t3hclap's even more rear fender fitment blog on his website.. Bring your 4lb hammer and angle grinder to the party.
