So running the 15mm spacer up front on the 18x10 ET25 with 275/35R18 tires worked? No rubbing? Didn't the wheel stick out quite a bit?

I have nearly the same suspension setup (GC conversion kit), running -2.5 up front with no more than a half inch of lowering. I've got the 18x10 with 275/35 NT01s up front and notice that the tire runs really close to the strut. Good to know you have the flexibility of running a spacer if needed.

  • Tires: Grand Am Continental Challenge scrubs from Turner, 275/35-18
  • Spacers: 15mm TMS (front), 12.5mm TMS (rear)
  • Suspension: Ground Control conversion kit, lowered 1/2" all the way aroiund
  • Alignment: -2.6 Front, -1.97 Rear (0 toe at my shops recommendation)

First, there isn't any rubbing. Anywhere.

Second, GORGEOUS. (giant FAIL for the camera being left at home...) Edit: Picture in action from this past weekend:

Third, handling was spectacular. I'm fairly certain I took 3-4 seconds off my best time from last year. (secondary FAIL on my part for opting out of renting a transponder yesterday)


Edit: The photog that was out finally posted pics. Here's a link so you can see for yourselves... I don't have copyright to it, so it goes straight to his site & is watermarked.
