Thanks BP

Yep gotta check brembo clearance, of course.

If you reckon 3-5mm spacer might be required - that should be resolved with an ET of 48-50ish, right? (Same thing right?)

Spacers are illegal in Aust unfortunately. Insurance may not cover in the event of an accident so I can't use them.
Jah,

I'm not a fan of spacers TBH. I know ACS spec 8.5" wide et43mm for their wheels for Mx35i/mx40i without issues. You maybe OK without but I'd suggest you trial fit et45mm first before parting with any cash.

Sorry BP. I incorrectly assumed that a higher offset = further out. Wrong.... I always get that mixed up!!!

Haha Marco, thanks mate I didn't see your message until just now.

The lower the offset, the more chance it doesn't foul with the strut. But then we have to consider whether it's too pokey?

Should I target ET40-42 then?

Jah,

8.5" et45mm will look similar - in terms of wheel face : bodyline - as 8" et 40mm - common fitment. As 8" is narrower there's zero concern with strut clearances so no specers required.

FYI I'm running 8" et34mm on front axle with F8x lower arms [longer than stock items so increases neg camber and widens track] - not "pokey" and wheel face sits flush with body work. On oem 225 MPSS and Birds B1S springs - no rubbing.

Image

TBH - if you are wanting 19" 8"/8.5" - IMHO you could do with these in your life....Kelleners Sport Munchen Alloys 19" 8" et 36mm and 8.5" et 47mm - OEM look and nice concave face

Thanks v much BP. I'm looking for a square setup, although the wheels you suggested do look very nice!! (Or I could just get the 8" version and use that for both front and rear)

There aren't many options for 19x8.0. But as you mentioned, ACS is 19x8.5 ET43 so that might be the best bet (as long as it clears brakes).

Thanks!!

Yes - Munchen 18" x 8" et34mm square F&R would work just fine. Here's mine on 18" x 8" et34mm with oem 225/245 MPSS, H&R sport springs and M4 front lower arms

I would like to lower my car by 15mm. What springs would I need. Any links would be much appreciated.
I have M adaptive suspension. Will this have an adverse effect? Is it just springs I need or shocks too?
Thanks

MP, didn't know you could adjust rear camber?
What's involved from an operator perspective, what are they adjusting exactly?
Jah - Photo below of NSR suspension - lower A arm is shown with yellow line - the inboard bolt on RHS is the eccentric bolt MP refers that can be slackened and adjusted.

Image

As an aside, the toe link is seen above the A arm and its inboard bolt is also eccentric as this will need to be tweaked to correct toe, as toe is effected by camber adjustments

Had a 4 wheel alignment done a couple days ago after having the hr springs fitted and new wheels on , managed to get a bit more neg camber on the rears than stock to bring in the tops a little as my wheels are an aggressive 18x8.5j ET35 .
It's a slight change but it looks better , sitting at about -2.2 now on the rear
