This is 18x9.5 +32 with a 205/40. 35 will work without a spacer.

17x9 et25 on the rears? that's doable. that's around what my specs on my LMs were...
This is at -4.5 degrees camber.. tucked when i air'd out.



This was when i only had -4 degrees camber

does that low profile jack really work on low? like the frame off the ground iphone height. I have to use wooden blocks, drive up on them, then get my jack under the car. I would love to just slide the jack under and have none of these issues.

Hey y'all. I'm trying to throw on some 18x9 et 45. I want to run a 225/40 at near DriverGear spring height. Now, can you dig it?! Sorry I mean, can I do it without rubbing much?

just trying to see what you guys think. I will be running 17x8/9 et 38/45 respectively and i will be on air too. would i be able to tuck those in and pull the proper fitment with 205/40's all around? will i need camber in the rears?

Thanks!

You're fine. Get 215 tires though since you're on air
