Hi guys,

1993 LS400
S55 AMG Monoblocks (temporary until I get my new wheels)
18x9.5 +45 all around
1" spacer conversion 5x114.3 to 5x112
Nankang NS-20
235/40/18(front/rear)

Megan EZII Coilovers with 1" drop
Megan RCAs at the front
SS Kit at the rear

I ended up cutting the fenders instead of rolling it because, it will rub. The front will rub only when you're driving up a driveway on a full turn. The rear camber were adjusted to -3 camber and the fronts are -2.5.

I am running 18x9 +22 on the front of my '99, on a 225/45. Have any specific questions?

Thank you! The lips inside all 4 fenders have been gently rolled up/in as to not catch the tire during turning or pulling into a driveway. On the rears, there was enough room that I actually reinstalled the black fender protector after rolling. The fronts do not have the fender protector, but the plastic fender lining is still installed in the wheel well. Tried to keep everything as stock and/or reversible as possible.
It is lowered on entry level K-Sports. They ride... good enough...
I grew up down the street from where K-Sport originally set up shop, have once interviewed there (for their sister-company, Voodoo13) and have always known some of the guys involved, so I got them for a killer deal. I would like to experiment with Stance, PBM, BC, Teins, or perhaps another notable brand in the future. A matter of financial priority... Someday.

ucf31CRB63,
Just wanted to mention that the 93 looks great, good work! Can't wait to see the next set of wheels. Keep us posted.

i think you covered it. What are you running in the back? What made you go with the +22 up front? Iím lookomg at doing 18x9 all the way around. Just have not a clue what offsets.

In the back its 18x10 +27 with a 235/45
I didn't choose offsets specifically, I just saw the set of wheels for sale locally and thought "that'll probably work".
Put enough aftermarket wheels on cars and eventually you get a feel for guestimating the fitment.

New shoes... OEM GS350\GS430 rims wrapped in 245\45\18. I went with them! Only took me a month to pull off.

EthanS,
Would you mind posting a photo of similar angle from the rear and a profile view? I've considered stepping down from 19" wheels to 18 for the comfort of being able to use a beefier sized tire.
