Hey guys I really like the 521's but I don't really know much about offsets and what not, my question is what would be a good setup I'm lowered on Cobb springs

Any input would greatly be appreciated.

Might need a little roll. But that's it.

Just got my 18x9.75 20 527's mounted with some 235/40's. Some thought it was going to be too stretched, but I think it's perfect. Can't wait to install my coils and wheels tonight!

Thanks. I'd go lower but I'm happy with the ride height. I'm not tucking tire but have no fender gap. Plus I'm at a height where I rarely ever scrape. And my front lip is only 4" off the ground as is. I'd love to but I can't. Maybe someday though!

First rim purchase ever, need some advice... I was looking at the XXR 530s for my bugeye. I've got a set of tires already, 235/40/18. I can get either 18x7.5 et+38, or 18x8.75 et+33.

Sounds like I'd be rolling the rears, if I got the 18x8.75, right? I'm lowered on Tanabe DF210s, 1.5" rear & 2.5" front, and DSpecs. I've looked at tire/rim size calculators, and the results I get say I'd be fine - which is totally opposite to what most are saying here!

Help! Pics would be awesome

You'll be fine! Roll all four fenders and maybe a little camber in the front ,but I think you'll be fine.
