they also make 18x9 with a 3inch lip too. I'll ask them about the weight when they get back from SEMA.

I'll play too

Wheels:
Work equips 18x10.5+16 all around

Tires:
225/40/18 federal super steel

Spacers:
5 mil all around (18x10.5+11)

Suspension:
Powertrix coilovers

Camber:
-4ish front / -6ish rear

Fenders:
Rolled front and rear, no front liner, rear fender liner trimmed, front fenders kinda pulled from rubbing from previous wheel setup, front and rear bumper tabs shaved, bent, cut, and hammered

Problems:
Very close, but none. Can turn full lock without hitting fender, but will hit side marker. Rear rim clears quarter panel by a credit card

Side notes:
Going to attempt to fit another 10 mil spacer up front and change tire size to 245/35 (if I still have the wheels) for a new spec of 18x10.5 +1F/11R

Do I need to put pictures?

edit:
you can tell the camber from this one


and you can kinda tell the poke from this one (sorry for the big picture)

Spacers: none

Fender-wells: Rolled

Problems: Rears rub at large sudden dips. With rear passengers, rub at every crack. Rubbing is on the corner where there's a clip that connects the bumper to the fender. No issues at all with the front

do you think you can post more pics of this im thinking on doing pretty much the same set up with 18/9.5/ +35 all around with either 265 or 275/35/18 with coils and it look like a pretty good setup

That 18x11 should be at least a 285 on it.

Suspension: KW V3 at about 25.75" ride height

Spacers: Never

Fender-wells: Stock

Problems: None

running about -2.0 camber in the rear and -2.6 Front

Tons of room on the inner front, about 10 mm from tire to fender liner at lock...inner rear has about 10mm to body mount of strut


Are you still running this set up on your 8? I just change my set up to 18x10.5 big lip wheels with 225 45 18 tires and is scraping the fender walls with the tire, I did the -2 camber adjustment and still touches, any help will be greatly appreciated

Problems: the back center caps wont go on because that bolt thing in the center extends out too far which is why i might consider thin spacers.
I'm about to buy a pair and appreciate the insight
