Default Apex Wheel Fitment question

Hi All
Looking at a set of 18x9.5 et22s with 265/35 from a fellow member and have conerns about fitment. Is anyone running this size ET? How would I set the car up for them to work for both track and street without having problems of rubbing and a bunch of camber?
I am running Bilstien PSS10s with 19s now(Dont know the offset) lowered to the top of the tire with no rubbing.

Youíre gonna need camber to run those tires. If I have to make a guess between -2 and -3. Probably closer to -2.

I have to run at least -3.5 with 275 Nitto NT01s with the fenders flattened, not just rolled.

The tire brand and model will also make a big difference.

I am would be running Mich Pilot Sports for now then maybe a full track slick of some sort
I am running -2 camber now.
Using the ET35 would be better then correct?
Thanks

An ET35 wheel would be safer. You can always add a spacer but you canít change the offset from +22 to +35.

Its price seems pretty good. $1500 in really good shape, ceramic coated and a set of Mich PSS with 5k miles. They are on our for sale section

Thatís not bad. I donít value used tires very much. 5k miles is about 25-33% of their useful life.

I agree on the tires but an extra $150 for four of them I could run them a few track days. They guy is also 15 mins from my house.

Im running the 18x9.5 et22s with 255/35s and -2 degrees of camber in front with no spacer. I havent measured my ride height but im on eibach prokit springs with koni yellows. Ride height is probably an inch or so below stock and I have no rubbing whatsoever except for a small bit at full lock

I have a good reason to want the 265/35 tires. My engine builder uses that size on the race cars. I can get his hand me down(i think he runs Hoosier) with three or less heat cycles for pretty cheap.

You shouldn’t have any problems. I run same wheels at ET35 with 15mm spacers, and no rubbing at all.
