over the few months i have been purchasing a few thousand in parts including
gc custom rate springs, rear subframe brace, new hood, fenders, quarters, camber kit front and rear, buddy club seat and i finally found some wheels i like.

the specs are 15x8 +6 et all around with1.5 inch adapters on top of that :alright. here is a teaser..... ;)

Don't like the look of that fender, and even with some crazy stretch does not look like you will have much travel before the tire hits the fender.

Waiting for end result, hope you can pull it off, good luck mate :alright

The stretch on a 195/45 is not going to be enough in my view, we shall see once they come, but I'm not really a fan of crazy poke either. I'm interested to see where this goes though. Hopefully you prove me wrong.

*reserves this for later*

Looks good so far.. but as others have said, 195... for some reason I really think it is going to be tight.

That poke would be somewhat doable if the wheels were an inch or two wider. There's really no tire that will stretch enough on a 15x8 to make that work.

I'm interested to see where it goes though. I know that much poke can be run on Egs with the right amount of stretch and camber but, again, theyre usually like 9.5s or 10s with crazy stretch.

I don't really like it honestly. It looks like a dumped Civic

195 on a 15x8 doesnt seem to enough stretch for that fitment... Im interested to see how this will turn out but without a ass ton of camber I have a bad feeling.

Id be stoked if you can prove us all wrong!

You're gonna need like -4/-5 camber. I used to know a guy with an EG but he had 8.5 +7/ +6 and he had, I think, -6.25 camber.

first off i want everyone to know that those are not the fenders going on the car or the quarters they are like that from driving the car dailey with the slips on.

new fenders will be hung along with quarters to be pulled alot to make the wheel flush.
No need to worry that wasn't my attempt to make those wheels fit haha :rofl

and yea 15x8s suck for tire sizes, i really wish i would have purchased some 165 45 15s at h2o but had already ordered tires by then updates definitely this week:alright
