Default Offsets

I was wondering what the offsets would work for a 2000-2001 ES? I want to go with a more aggressive wheel for my next rims so I'm doing my reasearch.

same here, as far as i know, with coilovers a 9" width rim would need about a positive 15 et, but then i am unsure about the frontspacing, i believe it will stick out too much.
im actually about to order up a set of sc430 wheels, and go from there.
then, i can get an exact measurement with the widest wheels, and lowest offset. but am unsure if sc430 wheels will even clear coilovers. because from what i remember reading, 3mm spacers are required for the rear, but i believe that is on a strut suspension. so for coilovers? im thinking it might be too big.
o well, lets see.

stretched tires, negative camber, and fender shaving will do wonders.

although these things are quite extreme and probably not recommended.

yeah, most people wouldnt touch that kind of stuff, because its time consuming and a lot of money. but coming from owning a 240, ive learned lots, and thats what ill use for my mcv.

I defintely want the shaved fenders but I'm sure about the stretched tires. A little negative camber might be nice more of a VIP look I think. I want some Work wheels. Either the

or the Euroline DZ

I think they'll look pretty good on my ES

lol, funny lights man, jk. my brother and i just installed a set on both of our es'.
work wheels are nice, very. but pictures are quite deceiving. work wheels have a lip thats a rolled edge. how do i know, because i spent 3k on my vs-xx's and saw them for myself. personally i wanted the dh's and dv's as well, but with that kind of edge i think would look very funny on our cars. but you have your own opinion and its respected, but be warned.
and negative camber is a must. im running maxxed out negative camber right now as well.
goodluck.
Charley

How does your car ride with the negative camber? You have any suspension problems or any problems going around curves?

well, im on ksport coilovers. it is very very nice, as usual. but there is some problem with my front swaybar endlinks that keep breaking or getting wrapped around the coilover.
negative camber is not a bad thing, as long as toe is at 0. i say that the fronts can probably go to about -3 degrees and about -1.5 the most.
i like it.
Charley
