Pic in the sig, I'll dig for more parked shots.

square setup looks so much nicer when you have camber and dropped. I really need to install my coilovers soon and get you guys some work. what ride height are you at in those pictures?

Heres a few of mine with the oem 18s painted black. These pics are without the 10mm spacer in the rear as the rear tires rubbed too much.. 265 BFG R1s

There's got to be a TON of folks with pictures of the 18x9 square setup.


I really like the OE 18x9 all around. I think they look great.

These are some older photos. I ran the 18x9's with snow tires this season since I picked up another set of wheels for the summer.

All of the photos are at about -2.5 to -3 degrees front camber except for the image in the driveway. I think that was about -4.3.

I'm right about 13 F and R, I like the way they car feels with more rake, at 13.5/13 it had too much understeer. With it raked more I get high speed understeer, low speed is pretty neutral/light oversteer. Which I prefer since I can stay on the throttle and correct.

Front splitter was redone and should be on for the next event should get rid of the high speed understeer and give me more neutral/light oversteer overall.

What coilovers did you end up picking up? We can get your car setup and help you get it all dialed in. (ride height/dampening/spring rate)

Ah... very nice, I was planning to get AST's but came across an offer I couldn't pass up.

I'm guesing... CPA/Accountant?
