same setup, looks like fenders are rolled and slightly pulled. it depends on what tires you're getting.

not my car. i'd go 215/35 and 225/35. you need to roll your fenders at the least with this setup.

What color is ur car?
I run the exactly Set up
215/35/18 and 235/35/18 Tires
-2 Camber all around
2" lowered on Coilover
Fender is rolled flap and pulled 15mm in the Back, 10mm in the Front.


There is no way u can do this WITHOUT fender roll. U even have to pull it...unless u plan not to lower ur car at all.
Or just get 18 x 8.5 all around. Then all u need is roll fender a bit.

This is how it sit WITH rolled flap fender and -4 Camber.

Thats some really stretched tire if you go 225 on a 10" wheel. Keep in mind some tires run wider/narrower than true size.

Then just get Flat Black XXR 521, u dont have to paint it at all after.
And how low u going? U might not have to roll fender if u run stretch tire on 18 x 8.5 all around.

Listen to this man ^ he knows what he's talking about.

Otherwise man if you do not know how to roll your fenders, why run such an aggressive setup if you don't know what your getting yourself into? If you still want to go with the staggered setup and still do not know how to roll, look up other ways to do a roll other than a fender roller, like a breaker bar or baseball bat, they may sound ghetto but they do work sometimes even better than a fender roller.
