Default Bagged 96 UCF20

Got new wheels and my old thread title doesn't really fit anymore. Decided to start a different one with a title that wasn't as specific. Anyways. The wheels are DY Design Champion 18x10 +15 all around. I don't have any fender work done but I need/want to get some done soon so I can go lower. I can only air down this low atm due to the tires hitting the fender and I don't believe in or feel comfortable riding with super stretched tires.

I have a custom trunk setup coming up soon as well, hopefully this or next weekend. Then I will begin the hunt for skirts and front lip.

New wheels on and a few Galaxy S5 pictures.

Are they actually multipiece wheels or fake splits? What brand/size tire?

Looks good, but what the prob with more stretch? What about camber to get them to tuck a bit more?

They are DY Design Champions (Dai Yoshihara Discount Tire drifter) and they are one piece.
Champion is their signature wheel style emulating the wheels used to power Dai to his 2011 drifting championship. And these "fakes" look more real than most. It really looks like a two piece wheel because of the small gap between the face and the lip. But you can reach in behind and feel face welded and molded to the barrel. You can see what I mean in this picture

And the tires are 225/40/18 on 18x10 wheels and the brand is Sailun. I know, cheap, but the tires I got with these wheels had extreme toe/camber wear. 1" of inside of each wheel was destroyed. Rest of the wheels were untouch/like new. They even had nipples still on the flat part of the outside. So not much of my buds tires were touching the rd.

As for more stretch, I went bagged over static because I'm "not about that life" and didn't want to replace tires and bumpers and axels and other static problem sheit over time. And I didn't like the way the 215/40 that came with the setup looked either. So I won't stretch(too much) because I know too many people who have had their tires debead. And camber would create wear I don't want at normal driving height. It already naturally cambers a bit the lower it goes, so all I need is a little pull and roll and I should be good. I may opt to have a little more camber all around but nothing too extreme.

It does look nice. How did you get that 10 up front with no fender work and no rubbing. I know very little about these things but have done some reading so pardon my ignorance.

Oh I don't have fender work but I need some done all around. In the pictures I am all the way aired out, and sitting on all 4 tires. Since I have a small stretch, and I can raise the car, I don't rub much other than taking sharp corners.

Once I get some fender work done I can lay frame. lol.
