9.5 inch wheels up front, doable?

Trying to see if I could run 18*9.5 with an et of 40 up front or it will rub like crazy?

If you're on stock struts/camber you'll need an offset of around 33. If you are on coilovers/plates, 22-25 and -2.5-3d camber fit 275 up front easy.

Yup. I'm on 8.5 et15 up front now....with plenty of tuck, no poke.

Cityazndan- I'm in your neck of the woods, if you don't believe it.

Doyle,

I wanna see this 275 tire in the front, thinking about TC Kline coils soon and I'm running a 18x9.5 et35 with a 5mmspacer currently on sports with no rub

Don't have the 275's mounted anymore. It was basically the shop seeing how much the front could swallow. 285/30 was where we started to rub.

If you look through some of my old posts you can see pictures of 265/35 nt05's on 18x9.5 et 25 mounted with plenty of room.

PM me if you want to schedule something. Since I have my DD wheels/tires on, I'll have to swap to the forgelines.
