My setup is by no means aggressive, but I suppose it's still somewhat useful information.

Wheels- Enkei RPF1
Sizes/offsets- 16x8 +32 F/R
Tires- Toyo T1-R
Sizes- 225/50R16 F/R
Optional info- Unmolested fenders, Stance GR+ Coilovers, AWR Rear Adjustable Camber Links, Camber bolts on front struts, -1.5 deg camber F/R, 0 toe F/R

The tires are a little stretched, but I was worried about trying to fit 245/45R16's. With camber plates and bolts in the front there is literally 1/8" of space between the tire and spring perch and it's damn near flush with the fender. I will try the 245's next, at least in the rear where there is plenty of space, but I want a square setup. I'm am a little worried about the fronts, but the overall tire width should not change.

The rear camber is not ideal (-1 would be nice) but I've pretty much max'd out the camber adjustment on the passenger's side. I plan on adding an adjustable lateral link to dial out most of the initial negative camber then use the camber links to make the sides equal. With this I'd like to lower the rear another 0.25".

Sorry for the large pictures...

to them if it doesn't stretch the tires, it's not the GP sports kit/knock-off, doesn't have useless camber or 1/4" off the ground then it's not cool at all.

Which makes perfect sense. They are sacrificing safety either way. lol

It doesn't have to be aggressive, and believe it or not, you probably are helping or will end up helping someone decide on a setup for their own vehicle by posting your info, so thank you! That's why I wanted this thread.

Funny that you said that, because I told them the same thing.

Here's the setup on my FC

Rims: Fast FC01's 17"X8" + 40 on all 4 corners.
Tires: Sumitomo HTRZIII
225/45R17's up front
255/40R17's in the rear.
Stock everything with baseball bat rolled front fenders.

Unfortunately I don't think I have any pics with those tires on the rims. I do have pics though with crappy 215/50R17's on. They looked terrible on the rims though... The new tires look WAY better.

Did the Shine fenders run wider than 20 or not as wide?

Old thread is old. Anyone know if this is still true or if they actually stepped up to +30? Trying to figure out what I'd need to fit a 255/40R17 on 17x9 +22 or a 275/40R17 on 17x9.5 +18. I know front fenders are required but trying to figure out if the Shine fenders would be enough and if I'd need rear over fenders as well. The deltas are something like +30 outward and -2 inward over my current setup (225/50R16 on 16x8 +32 running -1 deg of camber all around).
