Mate of mine is running 18x8.5 et +35, his car is quite low and they fit perfectly with a very slight roll on the rears.

They works rezax, even if only 17s would look fantasic. Mine are 18s alright but with 17s it could get a mean drop if you even want to.

Here is mine with the 40mm drop but without the equips on the front 18x9.5j et35 :

Thats just with the standard camber

thats 9.5 j on the front f*** me thats wide ha , thats what i dont want lol , my coilovers dont have camber adjustment dont ask me why id expect hks to have this

surely id get away with a 9 j on the back so there is 8j all round on mine now with +42 offsett so the front is not an issue its just the rear for me

Just spoke to my mate, his are 8.5j et30. He said that you can fit 9.5 on with et35 too. (he's done a lot of research on it). I would go for the 18 x 8 + 35 on the front and 18x 9 +38 on the rear myself.
Either the weds kranze (top ones) or the works rezax (bottom ones) in the wide rim would look cool even as 17's.

Hope you're gonna post up pics afterwards.

Altezzas have a lower and upper wishbone that's why the coil-over can't adjust camber :wink:

Altezzas do have camber adjusters on the lower arm but these were designed for normal ride height, if you go too low you will end up with a lot of negative camber and inner tyre wear... if this is a problem you can get adjustable upper arms but be sure they allow for POSITIVE adjustment as the Cusco type ones are designed for track use where extra negative camber is more desirable than tyre life

never saw a pic of the front but there was a guy on drift works running 18x9.5j et 30 rota grids, I think that may be to much poke on the front without serious arch and camber work.
