Who runs aggressive fitments?

I just ordered some winter wheels 18x8 ET37 square setup. I know this is going to be aggressive, but dont tempt me with a good time. With spacers my rear wheels are at ET40 with 225/40/18's and theres definitely a slight bit of room to move out. Im wondering is anyones running 225/40/18s at et37(or lower) and have pictures? I will likely roll the inner edge of my rear fenders for for the extra couple mm of clearance but was curious of other peoples experience running similar setups?

Also, I would go 215/40 but price difference in tire is about $500. So fuck that!

Thanks in advance!

I run 245/40 hankook RS3s on a 17x8.5 wheel ET40 with a 5mm spacer up front.

I run a lot of camber too though.

Why are you concerned about the rears? They will fit fine

I was under the impression lower than et40 was a "tight fit" on the e82? Im on eibach springs also. Not stock height. Should have mentioned that. Maybe im remembering wrong but i thought thats what i read anyway

With a wide tire (245) its tight in the front, but not the rears. Theres a lot of room back there. I can show you once the sun comes out.

STock or lowered for et40 for rear? I was told its a tight fit since the stock offset is 12mm more inside (et52).

Why would you ever run a 245 tire on a 10" wheel?

This is the 'aggressive fitment' thread

I have these waiting to go on.
18x8.5 et35 with 225/40/18 R888
18x9.5 et50 with 255/35/18 R888

That's about as "aggressive" as I'm willing to go.
