I have run them at et22 without any rubbing on the fender liners even at full lock. Unfortunately the KW coilover spring showed signs of slight rubbing on the inside (slight black scuff on the spring). I then added a spacer to achieve et15. The inner rubbing was solved but the tire now slightly rubs the liner at full lock. No rubbing during compression while driving. I think the magic offset for a 275mm tire on a 9.5" wheel is probably somewhere in between et22 and et15. I will report back after I experiment one more time with et17. No matter what, negative camber is necessary to run these sizes.
Yep I rub with my ET15s and 275 tire. I am hoping some magic can be done with an alignment but the solution may be going to a 265 tire in the front.

No sir, I had to sell the GT3. Didn't have the $ for both... I had to get something more useful on a daily basis.

Not my car but I know that iND has a set of rare 18" FIs on Green Hell. They will probably chime in.

How that beautiful lip is still in pristine condition, is beyond me. But I love it. Best in show as far as I was concerned.

I really love everything about this build. The wing looks great assuming the car sees some track time, otherwise it's a bit overkill, but I think you said it sees the track (or will) so I love it!

What's with the crush everyone has on painted reflectors? Honestly I think painted reflectors looks pretty stupid. Either shave the bumper and fill it in, or leave the orange OE reflectors. The little painted bumps look silly, but then again, I'm a function over form guy.

There are pics of the car bone stock. I knew the wing would not be for everyone but I had to build this car for me.
