suspension setup

Saw this car on carsale, is this car a member here?

http://www.carsales.com.au/private/d...4183368/?Cr=28

Really love the stance of his car and wonder how can he put such an aggressive rim without rubbing?

Front 19x9 +22
Rear 19x10 +20

How can I achieve similar stance like his? I don't think rolling alone will be sufficient?

maybe coilover to raise the car up a bit to avoid rubbing due to the extra width & aggressive offset?

Is this a trick question??

You already have the offsets, rim specs and suspension mods written out for you...

The rest is easy...

That thing has way too much rear negative camber. That's how it fits. You'd be much better off with a slightly less aggressive offset and run a good camber setting for performance. The top of the rim position relative to the guard will be the same.

so, just follow what he has bought will do?
I thought there will be other things to be done to achieve that stance?

In general, a balance of style & performance, what are the ideal camber setting for the front & rear?

Wheel fitment is where the style side of it is determined. As long as the combination of the right camber and the right offset give the right wheel position in relation to the guard, the style side is covered. If you want more aggressive poke, stretch the tyres more and go more aggressive offset, rather than increase negative camber.

-2 front and -1 rear camber is a pretty good all-round setup.

Based on nothing but a very rough visual look at the car linked and specs posted, if I wanted aggressive fitment with 19s on the same car, I'd prob run 19x9.5 +25 front with 235/35R19 and 19x10.5 +30 rear with 265/30R19.
