btw, question philly did you ever consider running a bigger tire? if so what stopped you? you seem to have a lot of space for some more tire.

Just to reiterate for the members who can't read the original post of the thread:

Rule #6: No B/S! This is not the PL. (aka no unnecessary commentary)

Thanks!

Btw, Philly might run into issues with mounting tab with larger than a 255... Maybe that's why? Just a thought.

-2.25* F

Toe:
0 F
0 R

Front:
-Rolled using a ball hammer. Completely flat. Pulled about 5mm.
-Cut out 1/3 of the fender liners near the outside fender.

Rear:
-Roll flat with fender roller.
-Flared fenders 10-15mm with fender roller.
-Trim the bumper tab.
-Cut off half the plastic bumper tab cover.
-File down 1/3" off the inside lip of the bumper (which is basically just a continuation of the fender lip).

Just wanted to say thanks for creating this thread. This will be my next set up just different wheels and my rears will be a +30 instead of +33. Now just to decide on the color. Bronze is in the front running for now.Thanks again.

No problem! I made this thread hoping that it would (greatly) help other members and it's encouraging to see that it is (somewhat)!

Of course I couldn't have done it without the other participating members in this thread, so some credit goes to them as well

Can i ask some question.

How much work on the fender i need to do to able to fix this without rubbing issues?
18 x 8.5 215/40/18 + 30 Front
18 x 10 245/35/18 + 25 Rear

How much Camber? (I really want it no more than -2)
Roll/pull fender? (I dont mind flare or pull around 10 - 15mm)

Im on stock height but when i get the wheel, all money straight to Coilover and looking for 2 - 2.5" (maybe?) drop.

Is the size of the tires im going for good enough? Maybe lower for a bit more stretch?


Or i just gonna go
18 x 8.5 215/40/18 + 30 Front and Rear

Then maybe spacer the Rear out another 10mm?



I looking to push my IS300 set up to the limit while having it as a daily driving car so cant be rubbing that all. But i do love aggreesive set up wheel, in blood lol

Hi. I was thinking about getting a set of Work Emotion CR-KAI (17x9 +17 offset) for my 04'. I have seen some people that have similar set up's. Some are running after-market fenders and some are not.

I guess it would be similar to Sunny D's set up.

My question is. Are the 17x9 +17 offset too aggressive for factory fenders and quarter panels or will I have to do major fender work or can I pull it off with little fender work? And dose anyone have a price range on them or good site to pick them up from?

Thanks.
