///m 19x9.5 et 33 245 35 19 ST Coilovers. Will it fit?

Hey...looking to run the above setup on the front using VMR VB3's. I'm sure this has been done before and I would love some pics or confirmation that this will indeed work. I will probably throw on a 5mm spacer to push the wheel out a bit if I have clearance issues on the back of the wheel. The progressive spring on the ST's is beehive shape so there may be some rubbing with the non-spaced et33. Also no camber plates, just the crash pin removed from the stock tophat.

Any insight dudes? Also FYI I will run 19x10 et 25 275 30 19 rears. No rubbing is expected there...

You will be fine. If it hits the coil just measure how much of a spacer you need. I'm running a 245/35/19 up front and my offset is much lower than that with a 1.5 inch drop. No rubbing at all. And no fender work.

It fit

Fronts needed at least 3mm spacer. I put a 5mm in there and its perfect. Tire is a little stretched on the rim but no worries. Car looks sick...
