I pretty much have decided on either LTW5's or Arc 8's in 18x9 square with 255/35 tires. They have nearly identical specs, with the LTW5's coming in at ET41 and the ARC 8's at ET42. On my stock suspension is sounds like the consensus is that these will fit.

Well, I came across a great deal locally on some H&R sports 29484 and Bilstein sports. Car is currently on stock sport suspension.

I'd like to know if anyone is running this setup with similar spec wheels. I'm concerned that with that amount of lowering I will run into fitment problems with a 255.

Planning on going with Hankook V12 Evo's in 255/35/18 and most likely the LTW5's.

Thanks!

Your new setup will be very close to the popular VMR staggered fitment (8.5 ET35 with 235 tire and 9.5 ET45 with 255) - front will be identical on the outside edge, rear will be 2mm less aggressive. The VMR setup is known to work on lowered cars without rubbing so you will be fine.
