With a drop, it will look sick, cause the extra negative camber will kinda tuck them and look very aggressive. However in the current shape, they dont look too good. DROP is needed asap. U will c, they will loom sick once u drop it, but u may still have some rubbing.

I like the rims in your mini pic at the bottom of the post... what happened with those? LM's are some of my fav, LMR's are at the top of the list though

Do you have spacers? If so go smaller or remove them IMO.

i think it will rub for sure when/if you drop it, but you have the potential for a
little poke and stretch with that setup. btw never knew you could reverse the
face of the wheels.

Reverse Face - Fail

I appreciate that you "like" the look but when 50 out of 60 posts, about everyone's all time favorite LM, say they don't fit, you probably have an issue.

By reversing the mounting face of the wheel, you have pushed everything too far out, and messed up the offset. It kind looks like the car wants to start bouncing on some hydraulics... man... It looks like the front tire is already way past the outside fender edge, so most probably if you push the car it will rub... on the paint.

Personally I would switch at least the front wheel face back to front mounting, thus addressing the offset, and then lower it. Maybe switch both and add some spacers to really fine tune it.

Sorry for the negative comments, but LMs are one my all time favorite wheel, but these just don't look right.
