Im running 235 18x8.5 square
Megan sport suspension
Rolled fenders and no rubbing what so ever and actually going to up grade to 19x8.5 front and 19x9.5 rear just haven't found the perfect rims yet. Have 3 fingers clearance in front tires and 2 fingers in rear tires. Rides smooth!!

My Ride: '05 ZHPci 6MT BLACK
Here's some shots of my ZHP coupe.

Wheels: 18x9.5 et33 VB3 SQUARE
Tires: 255 BFG G-Force sports

Took a little trimming to get this aggressive of a set-up to work, but it was worth it in the end!



I have a few more pictures for anybody interested in seeing this fitment.

The last two pictures are before I lowered it a little more and installed my camber plates (which were needed)

I'm in agreement with the others. This is the one. Classy. Clean. Perfect fit.

I had to look up what the ACS Type III's look like, and I think I'm with jdny516... I think I like those CSL's better. I know ACS has a fine pedigree, and they're nice looking wheels, but man, those CSLs are just so perfect on E46s.
