I've been a ADV.1 fan since the beginning.
Are you going concave in the back?

Yup, flat front profile (due to brake clearance - 98% of all cars they do are this way) and a deep rear profile.

275 is way oversized. You can already see how much the right rear is higher than the left. Not a smart move.

It's on Eibach springs but it doesn't really lower over the OEM Sport Suspension.

Agree with Frank, I think 265 is max

275 fits fine. As long as you get the right offset dialed in it's gravy. Put 150 miles on the setup today - no rubbing anywhere. Pics in a bit.

And a quick p-chop of it lowered a bit more...

Other than going coilovers (which I really want to avoid if possible as this is my "keep is stock, reliable, and useable DD") does anyone make a spring package that removes the front wheel gap? The rear looks almost perfect but the front is still about an 1" too high.

I had heard the Renntech C32 springs might have the appropriate rake? Anyone know?

Cheers!

Looks good.

As far as springs go, renntech indeed has the right height if you set the rear with #4 pads. Search around, you probably will see one of my pic with the lm-6 lorinser rep wheels or with HRE or with Carlsson wheels. Just search renntech c32 springs on google for the image.

Those wheels are really neat! Very sharp, love the concave rear and the look of the 275s, really meaty.

May I ask you how much they set you back?

wheels looks pimp ..

Looks good! Front could go down a bit, but the rear looks spot on! Whats your final offset for running 275? I know most folks run et 35 and 265. Yall think we could run 275 on et 30 paired w/ some tab grinding and slight fender rolling? :x
