    The offset on those wheels is incorrectly matched to your suspension.

    Coilovers have been ordered, and I have yet to rub my fenders at all. Fronts and rears are rolled.

    Painting the skirts is definitely on my list of things to do, and thanks! I love being wingless.

    Coils have been on the car for about a month now. Got a crazy deal on a set of BC BR's w/ Front & Rear camber plates.

    (sorry for the crappy pictures. I don't want to do a legit photo shoot until I get the new tires on and the wheels done)

    Current stance.

    the car will be changing a bit this summer. Downsizing to a 245/40 so I can go lower and eliminate some rubbing issues. Also getting the grids powder coated iridescent white.

    Thanks. I agree. They'll be a pain in the butt to keep clean though.

    They will be pretty easy to clean if you go with a high gloss finish. They will get dirty quick, but a quick spray will fix that. Ever since I got my wheels powdercoated I noticed they clean off way easier than the painted wheels did.
