Sorry for bringing back an old post.... Can you give us details on wheel specs and tire size, along with anything else to make them fit? Fender roll/pull, camber? And after all that, do they still rub occasionally? And can you turn full lock?

Sorry for all the questions haha.

BTW, extremely clean looking car!!!! I had VS-XX on my EVO IX back in 06-07

You should be more worried about the rear than the front. You can fit a 225 front tire and experience very little to none rub with that offset. Also, the rear requires either roll or pull. Negative camber definitely helps. You're always gonna rub with that setup regardless no matter what you do. You can turn full lock no problem.

Thanks lawrences!

He is right, The rear rubs more than the fronts and I have the stock tires set up. Right now my rears are all the way down ( I have kw v2 btw) and it barely rubs, But if I have a full load I rub like mad. Front is has no issue at all, im also running a 5 mm spacer up front to clear the coils, and turning is no problem. hope this helps lmk if you have more questions.


Two new photos I found (john 1013mm and night import)

What are you planning? You're all over the forum right now

I love this car but dare I say it, I preferred it with the VMR's. what tyres were you using back then? Would I be dreaming if I wanted to add a set of 225/255 in there while that low?
