Yup you'll need to pull your rear fenders about 1/2 inch and shave them while running about -5 or -6 camber in the rear and some neg camber in the front with 215/40's (anything more and it will rub for sure and it will pinch your QP). I was considering 17x9.5 +17 and opted to get 17x9 with low offsets because I couldn't manage all the body work. Also, there is a guy who shaved pulled stretched tires and camber with 17x9.5 +17 and still pinched his QP's with stiff springs too.

And yes... please don't get those and leave it up because as Randell says, it will be 4x4 status lol

Randell: How's the sell coming? Did you pick up new wheels yet? Btw, my homi was asking if you were still interested in his +22 RPF1's?

The +22 RPF1s in Arvada? I emailed him. I think I'm going to go with that set up instead of the RPF1 SBC 17x9.5 +18

People keep flaking out on me, so as of right now I still got em. Still looking for wheels, but I also do not want to pick any up while I still got those BBS unless I find a great deal. I was gonna get them wheels off your homi, but I found a brand new pair in the color I want for less than what your homi was asking and that was shipped. Tell him to hook it up

The white FG has SBC's in 17×9.5 +15 17×9.5 +0 -- "He couldn’t do a full lock u-turn because his wheels were too wide, so he had to reverse all the way around in a one-lane parking lot..." SBC's do look pretty sick though.

Yeah you should pick his set up -- I know him and he takes real good care of all his parts. Those wheels should be near immaculate condition if I'm not mistaken.

Also: If you run 205/40's with some negative camber in the rear you don't have to do fender work lol but you will need some reinforced side wall tires (Falken 512's or 912). Otherwise just a slight roll in the rear is all you need ... like Randell said lol

I was about to buy a set brand new for 14XX.00
His set up is hella nice but not ideal for Colorado :\ Maybe when I go back to Cali and get a VRH Suspension kit.

I'm going for those RPF1 +22s!

Do it bro lol +22 is the best offset for RPF1's IMO and easy to resell b/c they flush FG/FA's, DC5's, S2K's, and TSX's.

Edit: 1400 is okay were they with tires? You missed a set just a couple weeks ago from a sunburnt FG2 on here selling his pristine set with 205/40's for about that price.

Yeah 205s on a 9" wheel? I'm all for a nice flusher look but damn...

In a different note, tax return time and I'm thinking of doing brakes next month. Ide like to powder coat my calipers I think. I'm thinking either black or red, any suggestions?

Right now I'm thinking red brake lines, black calipers and redstuff pads with ebc black slotted rotors.

Don't go red, they age poorly unless you keep them clean. Ask Corey about the red Brembo's we just saw lol

I would have to do fender work in the rear if I keep running the 235 but I'm going to a 215 and then I'm going to see if I still need work. As for the rear I'm down to 6 turns and the front I think 10
