Orteeze, looks really good! I'm thinking those are VMR 705? I'm thinking of doing the same thing but in 18". I want to run 255/35-18.

What are the tire specs you were able to fit? Width/aspect.

I do realize you put the specs in the original post so I guest I was wanting confirmation that you did end up using the Contis in 255/35-19

I did end up running 255/35/19 all the way around. Rubs slightly VERY seldom; only when I'm at a slight incline turning right. These are Avant Garde M550

I don't plan on lowering the car with this setup. I'm thinking about going 18's so that I can lower without the headache of clearance issues.

Update...


So it's been 7 months and the front wheel gap is killing me. I ran into a good deal on a brand new set of H&R Sports Springs. I'll be putting them on in a couple of weeks...

Stay tuned..

Installing them this Friday while the wife is at work. None of this "Babe, when will you be done?" crap. From what I've read it'll take a couple of weeks for them to completely settle. If they start rubbing I guess I can rock my 18"s until I have time to remove them again. OR!! I can sell these wheels.

Nice job getting an aggressive fitment to work OP

You mentioned that you might be moving to 18's... Many of our track oriented customers pursue the 18x9.5 et35, as well as the 17x9.5 et35 square fitments. It is certainly not a "bolt-on and go" type fitment like the 18x9 et31 option we have, but it can be a very nice setup for the weekend track warrior or aggressive street enthusiast.

We all know that the 18x9.5 et35 will fit out back no problem, so lets focus on the front. In order to fit this application with 255/35/18 tires, you will want to dial in some negative camber for the proper fender clearance. Camber plates are a complimentary good if you plan on tracking the car, and I believe they pay for themselves after only one season (they create even tire wear and prevent you from wearing out the outsides of your tires prematurely). $3XX camber plates (one time fixed cost) vs. $1,000 tires (repetitive / consumable cost).

The actual camber spec needed up front to fit the 18x9.5 et35 with 255/35/18 tires would depend on the type of tire being used, as they all vary in sectional widths. In other words, we need to know if your running a street tire, r-compound or slicks.

Assuming you are running street tires, you will need approximately -2.5 degrees of negative camber, and at least 5mm spacers to clear your struts.

It can also be done in 17's for those who would like to take advatage of cheaper 17" tire costs, or just like the look of the aggressive 17" meaty fitment.

ARC-8 17x9.5 et35
255/40/17 NT01 R-compound
5mm spacers up front
TC Kline Suspension & Camber Plates







I hope this helps guys Let me know if you guys have any more questions!

I can't give you direct answer to that. I'm thinking that rear would be fine with fender work and camber. Front also needs camber and depending your current drive height you might have raise the car. Still it's possible that those fronts will rub in weird cases like when reversing and full lock turning or possible to the oil cooler vent. Basically you kinda have to try it out. Safer choice would be 235/35/19 and 265/30/19.

I did find this 19x9.5 et20 with 265/35/19 front and rear, but it's not lowered. http://www.e90post.com/forums/showpo...50&postcount=1, but it's pretty good comparison to your rear. As the 10 et28 would retract 2mm and the 255/35 would have slightly more stretch.
