i would usually recommend against spacers... the thicker the spacer, the greater danger of having your bolts fail during hard cornering. but i understand in your case, getting another pair of rims in a better offset for the rear may not be realistic.

nice. You need some other color to match the lip on the wheels though.

is a sony ericsson cant fig out the model is kinda old but looks like a camera from the rear and rotates 180 if that helps. 1.3mp but good lens

as far as the silver on the car prob wont do that. I like the black so far and with me putting on more carbon stuff as i can afford it, it makes it better. but i know it will grow old to me so later on i will prob take the centers out and get them painted gunmetal or silver, hell might go with gold. but the black is cool for now.

Looks great. I have Work Meisters and my fronts are 18x9 +43 with a 255/35... your setup looks to be the same only with a +41... I have already caught my fender lip pretty bad on a driveway, so be careful! You have 2mm less than I do!

My ride height is set at 25" from the top of the fender arch to the ground.

im a little higher than that, i have not rubbed yet as far as i can tell but i may take out the fender liner bolt at the top inside of the fender and bend the tab over the liner. that seems the only thing that will rub. im not going to lower the car, mine looks lower than others stock that i see but mine is still stock suspension can fig that out, only thing im going to do is go with new shocks and struts.
