No, OEM 19's with 265 PSS's. Yes, they are not hub centric, but the OEM 220M's and my Arc-8's are still able to center on hub with the 5mm spacers. I know some wheels however, will not center with 5mm spacers. I will most likely reduce the amount of camber and go back to using 10mm spacers in front and rear.

Here is a pic of stance with 5mm spacers on the rear. Not as flush but I'm getting used to it.
If you look under the rear fender, you will see that the fender liner where the fender meets the rear bumper sticks out. This is where it is rubbing on my car. I don't think it has to do with negative rear camber.
