The addition of camber plates is an easy mod that greatly benefits handling overall. You don't need to do anything else.

Crack is whack.

Yeah, it really depends on the specific tire models, as well as ride height. Some 235s are as wide as 245s. Some 245s are the same as 235s.

Are my eyes playing a trick on me, or is there like 5 ounces of weight on the inside of the wheel in the lower picture?

I've never counted. And, have never cared.

You're assuming I know how much weight is on the wheel. Further, that for some reason I'm not willing to say? Why would I do that? And, why did you even comment on this?

agreed sir, I had a 245 Hankook V12 in the front and 275 in the rear, no problems at all. I was able to take off the 3mm spacers in the front after I trimmed my ASTs a bit. Now running a 255/275 Dunlop Star-spec and needed a 5mil spacer front and rear w/ near max camber.

These wheels are 1er specific and fit better then others if people are worried...I don't think one would need camber plates if the proper tire is being used and the car is not too low. This is a great buy GLWS!

Absolutely. Camber plates are only needed when moving beyond a typical 225. Some 235 tires could likely work without them too.

Thanks.

I know the both of you are just/must be messin' with me here.

For anyone else who really can't tell out there, look at the picture of my car. Then, look at a picture of a stock car. I'm sure it will be obvious whether or not the car is lowered.

You can also always search my user name for posts. A full description of the car is in a post on the site.

Thanks.
