Fitment with the bumper and body was spot on. Had to fiddle with the fog light trim a little to get em in. Rims are 18X8.5 et35 20mm spacers out back and 15mm up front.

Thnx for that info, just doing research on bumper fitments with different vendors and trying to narrow down which ones are nice. And ur rim fitment....oh my! 18x8.5 et35 with a 20mm out back making it et15 effectively....nice. What size tires on back and front, i would imagine a 225 for a nice stretch eh?
