I always liked that picture of your car in the grass with your current wheels. It will take a lot to beat that! But if you're going CCW I'm sure it will look great.

Very cool!! The front will fit perfect. The back... eh, what size tire are you running?

I rock a 18x10 et50 with a 255/35 tire, perfect setup. I went to a 265 and rubbed even with an aggressive roll and pull.

I will be really impressed if you can fit these. I ordered a fender roller just so I can try to fit a 255 PSS and 12mm spacer in the back on stock 264s. I'm even rubbing a little with a 15mm spacer on the front 225 PSS. I can't even imagine a 10.5inch wheel back there with 44 offset. Then again I usually just confuse the hell out of myself trying to figure out widths and offsets without drawing a picture first which I haven't done. Good luck though, your thread title is no joke. Really interested to see it.

I agree man, I think you are going to run into issues. I would honestly call CCW and tell them you want a et57 offset instead of the et44... here's the reasoning:

Your wheel is 0.5 inches wider then mine, so 0.25 inches on either side, that's about 6.35mm. My offset is et50. You really should move the wheel in an additional 6mm to et50, and then in an additional 7mm to et57 to make sure that you have no rubbing with a 255/35 tire.

The good thing about our cars is that there is a TON of room on the inside of the rear.. not so much on the front. Again, your front fitment will be really good, I think you'll be happy with it.

You should be able to run a 225/35 tire in front with no problem. I stress the 35, because once you go to 40, you won't be able to run as low as you would like, or as low as you need for the car to sit correctly and look good, and it will piss you off (trust me, I've been through it).

The rear fenders SUCK, because they have a double lip and the front and back part of the lip connected to the body and rear bumper are welded, so they can't be modified.

As far as tires go, a lot of people love the Bridgestone RE11. I have KDW2's right now, and I'm going to RE11's next.


Also, do you have camber plates up front???
