Oh wow! I think your next move will be some fender gap reduction.

I like those wheels though

This is what I would shoot for

That is definitely my next step! I got some bilsteins for it, now just need to get some shocks!
& Thanks man they look so much nicer than the bottlecaps. Were a bitch to get on because the lug bolts were hitting my e brake so i had to take my brakes apart and adjust the e brake

& thats about the look i'm going for! nice stance but still functional!

They're bbs rs replicas made by str wheels. The model is str 606 b (the difference between a and b is that a isn't mesh and b has the mesh like real bbs). At 15x8 they only come in +20 offset, you'll need at least 10mm to clear the calipers with the way the wheels are forged. I think the 17x9 might come in different offset but I didn't look to far into those cause I wanted 15s. Hope that helped! BTW if your lookin to get some they're great wheels, really strong and high quality, but try to order from them directly cause you can get a better price on them!

I run the enkei92's which are 15x8 et25 and they clear with a 7mm spacer, and will hit my suspension before they hit my brakes, glad to hear you got it resolved. As said before, pics!

Yeah but the placement of the mesh on these are really shallow so they hit a lot closer. I needed at least 8mm to clear but I like the poke of 15mm. There's pics in a previous post (links)

Ah I see, looks good man. I was running 15mm spacers in the rear but I had to remove them until I roll my fenders, they rubbed a ton on the track, never tried them on the street.
