17x10 ET 42 square set up?

Hi all
I ran into a set of 17x10 ET 42 CCW classic and thinking about pick those up to use for track. Anyone had same set up before? Thanks
Currently i am running AST with camber plate -2.5 front and -2 in the back rolled fender both front and back
The back should not a problem but front will rub the strut housing i guess may have to use 10mm spacer will that help?

Sorry man but the front will rub on most liking the fender and the strut. And running some negative camber will make you rub on the strut even more. The widest you can go in the front is a 9.5.

If you are looking for a good affordable track set I can help you get started with some quotes and ideas

This brings up a question I have been thinking about, are there any sufficiently high offset 17x9, or 17x9.5" wheels for a good rear fitment to fit 265+ tires? Apparently, 17x9.5 +55 is a common Corvette size, but their bolt patten is ever so slightly off from ours...

the offset is perfect and bolt pattern is doable, the hub is hair small which can be bore out.
