TY, bought them lightly used from an Evo 9 owner. $625 shipped! LOL. Got the tires at $78/each from that big sale the RE-01R's had when they were discontinued. I made out pretty well w/ this setup.

If anyone is ever thinking of gettin these used in the 17x9's, the Evo forums often have them up for sale. Common size for them.

Problems: rubs very slightly on the fender if i hit a huge bump which rarely ever happens. i think if i put a little more camber i should be fine.

i figured i'd add a pic as well. thanks to NYC Drift King for the pic.

You're an evil person. Such an amazing set-up and you only post one pic?!

Oh my... I just jizzed my pants (figuratively folks). That set-up looks so HOT!!! A++++++

To complete your look, you should get the full c/f sideskirt that Fluid Motorsports sells. It would "complete" your look!

Rims:
Varrstoen Es1
front 9.5 x 18 et +12
rear 10.5 x 18 et +15

Tires:
front kumho ecsta 225/40/18
rear pirelli pzero nero 245/40/18

Spacers: none

Suspension: megan racing street series coilovers

Fender-wells:
...semi retained.
front liner is trimmed at the top arch, behind wheels still in tact, fronts are pretty trashed. edge by the side markers is obliterated - but side markers stay in with a zip tie!

rear plastic liner i cut out towards the top pretty harshly, carpet liner is still there but trimmed where it met the top fender arcs.


Problems:
fronts do not rub at all, they contact the liners on full lock but no noise or shreddings.

rears rub horrendously. I am sitting on -4.2 degrees of camber with 0.02 degrees of toe. The tire does not rub the top arc of the rolled fenders, however I tried removing the plastic tab and edge of the bumper where it rubbed, the liner and rolled the metal fender tab portion hoping to preserve as much I could. I need to cut it out completely.Should be ok in a few days!

flame on.

Suspension:

Rubbed everywhere. Fronts were ok rubbed just a little but the rears rubbed every single time, maybe if I had coilovers at a stiffer rated and some more negative camber on the rear I could make them work but didn't want to put the work into it
