I'm maxed on camber from stock adjustments, I gotta explore other options to get more camber.

I'm partial to my front end, the only thing in my future is 97 sides and a nice lip for the rear that'll flow with the 97 sides.

I'll get some more when I get my tire sizes get sorted out

97 sides are in my future for sure

This is my daily, so when I get my rear tire sizing squared away I should be able to do everything. I was able to drive almost anywhere when i had my 18x10+13 and my 18x12-1 on the car

If you're going to go with this "STYLE", then you (like you said) need to get more aggressive with the tires, AND THEN you need to SLAM IT down so the tips of the top of the rim almost touches the fender.

If it were mine, I would get some Missle rear fenders, and 25+ fronts and make it look really clean like JDMMuscles SC- as it sits it just seems incomplete. Reminder: I do want to like it- the rims are very nice, great choice. I also like the ES projector fogs- nice work. Of course, also 97-00 sides and rear would give this a more finished look.
Thank you man

The plan is to get tires that'll have a thinner overall profile, add a tad more camber and lower the car.

I would love to get the K&M fenders, but I'm waiting till I get a better shipping connection from Japan to be honest with you. And even then I'd just order 7" or 8" lips and make the wheels poke out past the over fenders

This car needs an aggressive kit to flow with the wheels. Stock body it looks horrible. Or like everybody said if the front wheels had a smaller lip then maybe.

LOL

Yeah once I get the tire sizing down I'm gonna focus on some stuff to spruce up the outer to help with the flow of things

And nope, no ones guessed how these wheels are one of a kind

I'm gonna try 97sides and a rear lip.

Thanks man. I would love widebody, it's just not in the cards at the moment unless one of my importing contacts comes through.

Just a little bit Need some more camber in the rears for sure, and the front camber is set at -1.3 so I need to add a degree or two to tuck the tire a bit better

You're looking in the right vicinity, but I used all Original work bolts painted satin black to match the faces.

if you compare any of the pics of my rim to a run of the mill VS-XX you should notice fairly easily

It's all good, I only care about the wheels

Possibly a BN Sports Type-2 kit would bring the rims in. The tips of the bottom of this exaggerated kit might reach out as far as those rims past the fenders. (Not the wing.)>

Looks like the outer edge of the face is painted silver or polished.
