Stock lugs will work. You only need extended ones when adding spacers.

No extended bolts will be required. Depending on the tire though you may rub up front.

theres a 12mm spacer on the rear and i think the rear needs a bigger spacer, i might have to put the 15 on back there and see if i like it.

Wow I'm surprised you don't rub! Looks pretty aggressive.

Any reason why you would run less in the rear? I've always seen it where the rear is slightly higher. Going lower in the rear help to prevent under steer?

I have it at 36 all round and it feels pretty good. It looks so mean parked out on the street

So Close to Rubbing....I can barely fit the key between the tire and inner wheel well.







So flush with 265's.
