if your rubbing with +38 w/ 3mm spacers which would put you at +35 in the front you must have some meaty tires.. im looking at going pretty low offsets on the front however i also have stretched tires daily drive.. my fronts are 235-35-19

I think it looks great how it is. I never really liked the crazy camber. I look at it as more tires I would need to buy.

of course youknow that your car is a VIP platform by definition, right?

That said, your car looks fantastic as is. But I think a wheel change would have the biggest impact in going full-on with the style. Maybe a nice set of staggered 19's w an aggressive offset...and not in chrome but a nice polised or brushed finish.

Either way, you cant lose.

I'm surprised nobody mentioned that with your brakes, its hard to go aggressive offset. I like it the way it is.

it looks good to me. i would call it VIP with your personal style to it. since you did state the offsets, i would go a lil more negative to achieve a more VIP look. are you running Lexion 203's? thats what im using on my SC. my offsets are 19x9+24 on 215-35-19 in the front and 19x10+35 on 235-35-19 in the rear.

go to the club and valet it yourself. if they tow it; its not VIP, but if its still there when you come out, well............
