Car was just jacked up on this side, thus a bigger than usual wheel gap can be seen in the picture below.

Sick wheels but this may be a dumb question but do you have the 18x10s in the front and the 18x9.5 in the rear? In the first pick the fronts look more aggressive than the rears.

impressive front fitment!

those tires are like running 265 up front in other brands.

looks like the tire is sticking out past the fender though. does it clear during high compression turns? i'm assuming with a tire setup like this you're tracking the car.

i can barely get 245x19 +23 to fit on the front with -1.9* camber

Nice set-up. Be careful... you don't want to crack those plastic fenders in the front.

The new Apex EC-7. I'm eyeing a set myself.

As mentioned below, Apex. They come in more aggressive offsets as well.

18 x 9.5 is in the front, 18 x 10 is in the rear. Front is definitely more aggressive than the rear. Most people running these rims have rear spacers, I haven't gotten around to rolling the rear fenders yet so I didn't put on any spacers yet lol.

Only front rub (minor) over large bumps while turning at high speeds.

Yes I track with this setup, and on track there is no problem at all

Thanks man. Yes I am very mindful of the front plastic fenders lol. The Apex ones are sweet, better offsets too.
