You need to find out exactly what is rusted. The arm itself being rusted is irrelevant to the adjustment; even if the ball joint on the knuckle side is worn out the toe is still adjustable. The...

That's interesting, could the aluminum arm be used on a RWD car in order to lose some weight?

There are several reasons.

1. The biggest reason is that the market is miniscule.
2. DI engines aren't well understood by the aftermarket

That is interesting, the tread pattern looks out of place in the UHP category, HUGE side blocks. I'll have to keep my eye on these for sure!

You are thinking of the suspension upright. I had wanted to run a square setup as well, but I found out the hard way that a 17 x 9 +48 PF01 rubbed on both the caliper, and the front upright. They...

What offset? To get that wide of a wheel to fit you will have to run an offset that will probably make clearance with the suspension upright more of a concern than the brake caliper.

That looks fun. Do you know what the specs on the wheels are? Looks like they use three piece wheels because that is the only reasonable way to get the offsets necessary for such a wide body.

Also you mentioned the front wheels, but didn't say anything about the back. A set of light 17, or even 16 inch wheels along with a set of drag radials might be the way to get the et you are after.
