Who's running 18x10 fronts?

Did some searching and couldn't find many examples of 18x10's in the front.

I'm going to be dropping down from 19's to 18's and I'm going to get a square setup. I will be able to figure out the rears but looking for some insight on the fronts. I'm pretty low, fenders are trimmed, pulled, and rolled. I'll be running a 215/40 all around with some camber and what not.

If you are running 18x10's in the front no matter your ride height could you post pics so I can see how the different offsets sit? The more pics the better.

***And PS if you are going to rag on stretched tires and don't run 18x10's please comment elsewhere, this is serious business people.***

Pics of current fitment for reference. 19x9 ET 19 w/ 215/35's

18x10 et25 would be just as aggressive as your current setup. You could probably fit a 245/40/18 in the front.

I ran 18x10" et25 with 235/40 up front, no problem. Literally 1-2mm from the strut.

It actually should be at least 6mm away from the strut. 18x10et30 should clear the strut too since it is the same as 9.5et33 on the inside.

Depends on suspension and camber...

If you're on coils, the closest part you'll need to clear would be your lower locking collar for the coilover.

I meant with stock suspension obviously with coilovers there would be less clearance on the strut side. Camber shouldn't make a difference.

I meant with overall fitment, my bad. I'm on 3 hrs of sleep.

I see I was just talking about clearing the strut since we already know 18x10et25-30 will fit based on his current setup.

Anyone have any pics of these offsets? I have to play this perfect because my next set of wheels require adapters so I need to hit the nail on the head with the calculations. I was thinking about like ET10-ET15ish since I'll be running 215/40's but need to compare some pictures.
