I have a shop who has some custom fabbed suspension braces, I will mention it to them to look into designing an adjustable control arm for camber.....
Good to know. Thank you for the info.

Are you misusing the term pull? Because a pull would protrude out past the factory quarter panel location (and be visible from the outside of the car, without looking into the fender well) A roll would get rid of the lip on the inside, without pushing the metal work out any further past the OEM outer location.

Here is a pull I did on the front of my old s2000, the fender is pulled outward past where it originally was....

Let me just remove it from my description to avoid confusion. But to clarify what was done...the lip is gone and re-enforced with a sheet metal (it's flat)...and the fender was "moved" 10mm out...so 10mm out from OEM minus lip is the mod that was done. Hopefully that clarifies it for the readers attempting to put a 18x10 with a +25 offset (225/45/18 tires) on the rear of a CT200H.

Thank you Doublade! I like how yours looks. What suspension are you riding on? I read that you're going to TORC...hope to see you there. Still debating if I should take my Matrix or the CT200H. If you haven't been...it's the one of the best family-oriented car show in the So. Cal. Looking forward to seeing you there. If I do bring the Matrix...it's the widebody Matrix...just drop by to say "what's up!"

Nice car!!! You can't go wrong with CCW. Love the way the car sits and the wheel setup. Fully polished or Bright Buff Finish?

I hated to polish the lips once or twice every month. It was such a pain in the ***.

Me and a LOT of my buddies are now using this: www.shineseal.com

A bit expensive for the kit but well worth it. It seals in the polish so you don't have to re polish for about a year. I'm freaking serious. Through rain, dirt, dust, whatever element, all you have to do is wipe your wheels with a rag and BAMMMMM the same shine/shimmer/mirror polish from when you first sealed them. I haven't polished my lips in about 7-8 months and whenever it's dirty all I do is wipe it down. People are always amazed...thank me later

Looks pretty good but with all these mods, I'm pretty sure you just killed the MPG down by at least 10 if not more....kinda defeats the purpose of buying this car?

I think the sidewall height has more to do with ride quality than if you re-stretch with a softer riding tire. Maybe try some camber bolts up front and use a tire with a little more sidewall?

Soon...I'm thinking of buying a 2nd set of wheels :-) so when I take the CCWs off, I'll take the pictures.

Actually, I've averaged anywhere from 42-44 from 44-47mpg...I lost a few miles on my mpg. It's just my culture man...or our culture. We'll mod any car we drive (at least I would). I did 388.2 miles on 9.1 gallons (at least that's my last stop at the gas station).
