Everybody please post what suspension you are running along with what wheels and tire and whether or not you had to roll your fenders.

Cool table!


I am running BBS CH 18" offset 35 with 235/40R18 all around. I have the ZHP suspension which is slightly lower then the sport package suspension but not a whole lot.

No rubbing even with a fully packed car.
