This setup doesnít require spacers. It was pretty tight between a lump in the control arm and the lump on the side wall of the PS4s in the front with the wider tires, so I had them install a 3mm hubcentric shim. The wheel sits on the stock hub still.

The ride quality is great, and ride height is even better. Carís been lowered since January.

Thanks for the kind words.

Car looks sweet! Hate to be that guy, but that's a spacer. lol. Splitting hairs like that is a marketing ploy to make you feel better.

So the effective offset is 29, or 32? Meaning, did you start at 35 or 32?

Thanks.

The shim wasnít actually required, I put it on by choice - if I went with 225 up front, or a less bulky tire than PS4S, I would have more than enough clearance. Itís a lump on the control arm..

my front rims have a +32 offset drilled.

Yup, I know very well about that lump. Highlighted it as the main source of concern in the wheel fitment thread. PS4s is BEEFY, but pretty much the best street tire money can buy.

Car looks crisp, man. Gotta get my plasti-dip removed and wrapped, too. Looks good from far but far from good. Maybe Edition 1 decals. Will post pics as I go. Cars n coffee Toronto is May 6, 8am-11am. Early, but turnout should be good.

Sweet. Totally agree with you on the plasti. Majority of my car is wrapped but the front grill was sprayed. Never again.. Having it redone on Friday in wrap.

Nice! Can’t wait to see your ride (and others), hopefully the weather cooperates that day. Wanna get the exhaust tips done by then. Any suggestions for shops in the GTA?

Painting them black? Or switching your diffuser out?

Probably squared off, C63 style. So gonna need the diffuser. I also like those oval style from a few years back. Staggered, of course. Bonus if they can do the wrap at the same time.

I would get your diffuser through Eurocharged Canada - they're a yomato carbon distributor - they can get you the C63 diffuser for sedan in non-carbon - black or chrome tips. And Smart Detail beside them does wraps - good work as well.

I'll be there Friday for an oil change, and getting my wrap/plasti fixed, as well as tints. Stop by if you have time.
