Bumping this with my pics, and hope to get some input... I'm rubbing big time up front on both turns and bumps. I'm sure some more camber up front will help on bumps, but what can be done about rubbing on turns?

If it ain't lightweight, it ain't the right weight.

That's what i went with, 265/35/18. But from what I'm told, tires vary from their actual width, depending on brand.

15mm rear spacers:


12mm rear spacers:







Looks a bit funky, since the car has raised. That was when the car was around 3070 lbs. The first pic is the newest one, car is sitting at about 3040 lbs.
