wheel and tire help on a 2010

Postby KevinH028 » Wed Apr 17, 2013 1:30 pm

Ok I just finished adding RB sways, progress springs, and Tokico Hts shocks. The car is sitting at 14" front and rear. I now have a nice set of 17x8 wheels offset 45 and 235x40x17 zII's I would like to use this summer.

Now the questions:

I know that I have to roll the back fenders to a moderate 45 degrees from about 3 to 9 o'clock, or is this too much? Once I roll the lip and put the liner back on, do you heat the liner to reform it and get it out of the way or just leave it off?

With this small amount of lowering, What alignment specs should I have done to get the tires to tuck in?

Is there anything I am forgetting?

Thanks

With 1.5 negative camber that will be close to clearing the lips (minor roll needed depending on the tire choice).

Leave the liner in (but remove plastic rivets that hold liner to the fender lip and roll the lip up to pinch the liner and hold it without the plastic rivets).
