There is close enough though. Just use the 1010 offset calculator to work out the difference. Also going to sit out 8mm more than the 1000 s15s the run either r33 or 134 gtr wheels

I have 17x9 +32 with 1.5 deg camber. I only had to roll the guards. And I think there is about 10mm between the guard and the tyres now so yours should be very close to the rolled guard but I think it should still fit.

 

Saying that I run properly sized tyres - 255/40/17. If you have problems just run something a little skinnier.

How high do you want the rear / how much gap do you want between the tyre and guard horizontally?

I had 17x9 +22 and flush fitment horizontally. I only managed 3degs with pretty fat 235/45-17 sidewalled tyres.

With normal tyres you'd not get any better then 2.5degs.

This was all with rolled and slight pulled guards (the slightest pull that you can't even tell it has been).

Without the roll and pull, I was looking around 4degs.

I ended up removing the 8mm spacers to run 2degs.

Now the current tyres KU36s have actually thinner sidewalls so I could even go as low as 1.5degs, perhaps 1degs.

 

If you have it slightly higher, around 1cm gap horizontally, you'd still be able to run around 2.5 of so degs however it'll be mexican.

 

 

off topic are your trolling?

i run 18.9.5+22 on the rear of mine with a 235/40/18 tyre. Guards have been rolled and slightly pumped..couldn't tell you the exact camber specs but it'd be at least 3 degrees if not more

Don't really have one from that day.

 

Was setup for track, so wasn't really low at all. Can sort of see where the rear guard sits in the rear shot. Sorry mate.

It's fine - no scrubbage even using 235/45 Advan Neova AD08 which have chunky sidewalls.

 

Roll and slight pump on the guards are required but no verandah flares/lips.

 

Street alignment with no more than -2 deg camber is attainable. Of course, you can get track alignment too without scrubbing.

 

See my dp :)
