Not as easily as other wheels available. Do you have the means to dial in some camber or have your fenders rolled?

I think you will have the hardest time with the fronts unless you run a 205ish wide tire. That offset is pretty low for our front ends.

You should be able to easily run 225/45 or 235/40 tires up front and 245/40 to 255/35 in the rear. The 255 will have more of a chance of rubbing if you don't roll your fenders or have a means of increased rear camber.

You will probably rub in the rear and need a roll. People usually recommend at least an ET58 with a 9.5 rear aiming for 255/35/18

I think that's a little conservative honestly. While the +58 is ideal, people are running 275s (z1 star specs no less) on +58 with a roll. There shouldn't be much issue running a 255 and if it rubs, it will be minimal. The drop also adds a bit of camber naturally so that will only help fit.

Probably should go with a 215/40 and 245/35 tire, and you should be fine. It's more difficult with just lowering springs vs coilovers, because you can't play around with the height.

Please read up on rolling the fenders on our cars. They can be a pain in the ass and you could really make them look like shit if you don't do it right.

Rolling

Back in the day, all we needed was a baseball bat to roll the fenders. Kids these days.

If you're ever selling those wheels let me know, they're stunning!

And you're a local too, hopefully I'll run into your car at some point man.
