I hardly drove it around before rolling the fenders, but I don't think it would have at my ride height (but don't quote me on that).

I used a clay bar on my roof and polished my paint. The car look good but I have more polishing until it's done.

I didn't think it would. It's been so long since I had stock fenders that I'm trying to remember what size wheel and tire combo would clear the oem fenders.

I'm running a similar spec to yours 18x10 +40 with 245/40/18 front and 275/35/18 rears. I still have plenty of space.

I'm running a similar setup but with a slightly lower offset. Would a 265/35 fit with rolled stock fenders?

Depends on ride height and camber, but front or rear?

Slightly lower offset in the front, I would say you're cutting it close

Slightly lower offset in the rear, should fit with no issues.

It sucks to have to run staggered tire sizes on a square wheel set up, but it's quite nice to be able to fit some real tire under these cars. After my clutch and LSD are broken in I'll work on finding an excuse to throw some extra tire in there.

Having a stickier tire is more fun than a wider tire.

After getting my alignment done feels like a brand new car!

I meant to say in the front. I was thinking it would be pushing it and would rub. I have a set of the APT 50mm wide front fenders I could throw on but my new wheels aren't aggressive enough for them without massive spacers.

I dropped my new wheels of to get the faces repainted. I'm slowly getting this old beat up SC looking better and better.

Right now, I rub if I turn fast and hit a bump/dip with the 18x10 +40 and 245/40/18. I would still be willing to go up to 255/40/18 because it only hits in a certain situation.

I test fit my 18x10 +40 with a 275/35/18 in the front. It'll fit, but most likely would rub going up and down driveways.

did you roll the fronts or rear? I have 305 in the back and I really need to roll the rears not sure if that's going even help, might have to raise the car .5
