Fronts. I adore these wheels. I took my rear camber back to -3.5 from -6 and they're almost perfect. I'm thinking 12mm spacers for the rear instead of 20mm.

Wow, that fitment is looking fantastic. I can't wait to see the look once it's 100% complete.

You can go flush with 265's, it's called Hella Flustered.

I'm rolled and rear bumper clips shaved. Rear driver side still rubbing on deep dips. Going to 10mm meant tons of rub even going 5mph on a flat road. Any rolling bump or 5 degree turn of the steering wheel would lower the outside rear enough to rub like mad.

Did I hear right that there are companies who make special tread build pattern to handle high cambered setups? so more rubber on the inside? If so that would be awesome.

Yeah, the Nitto Neo Gen is reinforced on the inside for more extreme camber applications. It's what I'm on now. I got about 4k on one side of my Proxes 4s at -6, so I'm guessing I'll get about 20k out of these at -3.5. I just did 400 miles on them this weekend and they're great.

What?? So Proxes 4's got your only 4K miles from new at -6.......

And these Nitto's will net you 5 times the amount but at -3.5? What is stock camber? I'm so newb at rear camber....but I want my V710's on 265/30/19 to just not rub at ET45.

Yeah, but I had 225/35 proxes 4s stretched onto 10" wheels. Lol. These are 215/40 on 9.5", so it's much less stretch.
