i no showed cause of the rain as well, next sunny day ill be out, looking for a 179 ecu for an m30 if anyone has one and wants to sell it to me we could deal on friday. Thanks

jay im running 7.5 et 30's up front and 9 et 15's in the rear and they look badass, i could use a 5mm spacer up front just to fill out the well a little better, but theres no real need, the staggered look cant be beat

How does it corner? Oversteer, understeer, neither? What size of tires are you able to fit? (No rolling I assume?)

had to do some light rolling in the back, used the old baseball bat maneuver, one of my buddies is hooking me up with a fender roller this week though. now they only rub if i have passengers in the back and im driving like an a**hole, which is most of the time i guess.... seems to handle just as well as it did before, theres alot of torque now so itll push anything around. as far as tires go I am running 205/45/16 in the rear and 195/45/16 up front. I could run wider, but I like the lightly stretched look and going from the bottle caps these feel super grippy anyway

Can the owner chime in? I'm anxious to hear what handling is like. When I spaced out the rear 7" wide wheels 15mm, the car gained dangerous amounts of oversteer.
hey everlast,
18x8 all around with 40mm offset and 8 mm eibach spacers. gonna get 15mm ones for the rear to get rid of a bit more gap. they are staggered lips not actually staggerd sizes. hope this helps R-1 wheels Drift series.

Awesome, thanks for the info... The balance makes sense since you have the same width wheels all around. It's good to know that 8" wheels fit the front like that, kind of tucked in.

Anyway, if you try out the 15mm spacers let me know how you find it; it may introduce some oversteer.

I'm surprised the 8" wheels fit up front - my 17x8s _barely_ cleared the front struts at ET20. I guess 18s give you a bit more clearance since the struts are angled... and it also depends a bit on the shape of the wheel's inner lip.

I'm picking up 15mm and 20mm hub centric / wheel centric spacers on friday. Then I'm going to spend forever trying every different combo hehe.

ya if they arn't 18" they wouldnt fit do to that angle on the strut. thats why the 8mm spacer HAS to be there. theres only 2mm or less space between rim lip and strut.
