Dustin, thank you very much for the pics. I can see how the drop really does make them look "proper" in the front. Like I said above, when I mounted them, they looked really awkward/too aggressive at stock height.

Anyway, I put up a feeler for the set in the for sale section. I am torn on what I want to do at this point. I have my eye on another set of HRE's already

Again, thank you very much for your help. I hope this helps others as well who are looking at wheels with aggressive fitments

20" wheels react differently, although (by pure number crunching) , they are the same as 19"s in terms of width and offset. Tire, camber, height has a lot to do with this.

BTW, great fitment dustin!

standard HRE monoblock 20" is 20 - 9.0 et27. we like doing 20 - 9.0 et 18 or so depending on tires.

Without changing suspension set up or stretching tires, there is no way that you will not rub on 20 - 9.0 et9. However, with a little adjustment of suspension geometry, by camber or height (which usually changes camber), you can have a really nice fitment with those wheels.

Julius, quite a few have already confirmed that the fronts would be fine with a 245/30/19 (which isn't really stretching) with no adjustments...

i really dont know bro,

my 19x9 et 13 front with 245/35/19 ps2s is REALLY close and this is with 1.7 camber and on lowest setting on kw. Theres no way it would work with a 5mm spacer added. Its very agressive. With the yoko ad08s i was already rubbing and VERY scared i would break my fender one day. Biggest issue is the front.

My rear is 19 x 10.5 et 22 with a 285 ps2 and ive added a 5mm spacer so im at 17et and it works with no rubbing at all. Im sure an extra 3mm spacer wouldnt rub too.

Theres really no way to run this setup with a win win, the wheels are to damn agressive, but you know that means you can have one fucking ill setup if done right.

LOL you are on the lowest setting... what do you expect? I am surprised you aren't rubbing with your current setup with how low you are...

That wasn't a concern of mine because I won't ever slam the car, though.
