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???
as far as the setup i picked for the wheel specs im going off this http://www.1addicts.com/forums/showthread.php?t=631509
they have fit what i want under there with only needing a rear roll
heres pics of my roll & slight fender pull as you can see my tire was rubbing pretty bad

they said natural camer front & rear will work

Congrats on your order, cant wait to see this fitment - i hope they clear your brakes!!!!
I love the classics and ordered a set for my old car (18x9 +25 all round) and they didn't clear the front brakes - postage back to the states wasn't feasible either so i had to run 5mm slip spacers anyhow, im subscribed!

The setup should look really nice and aggressive, but I also think you are going to rub even with the pulled and rolled fenders that you have. My set up in the back is 19x9.5 et 37 (they are real BBS LM's, originally et 32 but shaved down 5mm to et 37) and on 245/35/19 dunlop direzza's, which have a pretty good stretch, but I it still rubs. I also have rolled and pulled fenders, including some negative camber dialed in.

Good luck and post up some pics when you get them!
