the earlier posts in the thread made me run to youtube and see some vids... All I can say is "YES" to this one... The fitment is precision! just close enough to not touch, but still looks flush.

Say what you will about the stance guys, they helped me pay my way through college when I was getting my Architecture degree Much respect due!

Ok I need help.... looking at a set of csl style 18x8.5/9.5. Et 35/33Would like to run 255/35 in the rear on stock ZSP suspension.. will I have any rubbing issues ? And if I lower it 1" with the same tire will there be any issues at all? Appreciate the help, I just need to grab these before they are gone if it's going to work.

You will rub with that offset and size, if lowered. Stock suspension. Not sure. Maybe a little.

For the editing and music choice.


That crooked intercooler is driving me up the wall, but it's otherwise primo. Apparently, it's on airlift bellow-over suspension.

Niiiiice.

I was looking at 18x9.5 square with 35 offset... by your pics, it looks like it should fit just fine.

Thanks!

Bumpstops have seen better days.

Looks great. How do you like those hankooks? I just got four put on a week ago.

I'm liking them a lot so far! Did an auto-x and really beat on them. I think they perform well for the price. They're supposed to be better in the rain but I haven't really tested that much. Pretty much anything will be better than my last tires in the wet though (NT555).
