My newly refinished OG 540s. Waiting for weather to clear to mount them up.

Work performed by Mark Perrault in CAli. (They're mocked up in this iphone shot, hence no bolts)

Nice. Iím going with 448/840 with my FCM build. I run the 18x10 265 up front with PSS9s and no clearance issues though, Iím surprised youíre running into a problem with that.

I've never tried its just something I've read would be a problem a while back. ET25? Also curious on how much camber I assume you're running stock top hats if you're using the bilstein springs?

Et 25, no spacers. -3.5 ish camber, GC street plates. The wheels fit and I’ve tried quite a few 265 width tires with no problems.

Ah ok I guess my only real need is camber plates then not springs at least for now. Then I can finally get rid of these ugly black VMR's

Are we talking about street setups or track setups?

I have zero desire for an et25 on the street (or anything wider than a 9" wheel up front).

Preferably I'd like to have a separate setup for each eventually. But other projects keep side tracking me. When I get to it the 10" et25 squared will be track and likely a staggered setup for street.

I have no problem with a 265 up front on the street (on either 9.5 or 10in wheels). PSSs donít even tramline that much.

Anyone out there know if OE CSL wheels will fit properly with Brembo GT6 (6pot fronts) and GT4 (4pot rears) with Brembo's 355 type 3 rotors? Would prefer to run without spacers, but I think they become necessary with these wheels and BBK. Trying to decide if I want to go the OE CSL wheel route or the 18" Arc-8 route once my brakes are in.

EDIT: Looks like the OE CSL wheels work just fine (I assume with spacers):
