Of course, with winter comes a different set of wheels and tires; but I still need to stay straight; camber-wise; just to facilitate the transition between seasons without having to realign. This is also why I need to readjust the height of the KW's 2 times a year.

Getting spacers is a must; just didnt knew which sizes. I may go for 12 in the rear and 15 in the front for now until I find THE wheels; which can take a while.

I wont use these in the winter since winter rubbers in 18's are way too pricey. Stockies are fine for winter. Besides, OZ are still worth money; so might as well just sell them after getting my new ones. To change my wheels, I would have a budget of 1 to 2k.

Keep 'em coming; thanks guys
In the winter, you want to run a narrow rim / tire. You want to put as much weight as you can on a small surface area so you force the wheel down past the snow to not slide as much.

You can't be hella flush without some intense camber, I think what you are looking for is just a simply more flush setup, start by rolling your rear fenders get some spacer lower your coils a bit and then enjoy your new stance!
