Ive had the BCs installed for about 2 months, im going to try to add more camber in the front when I install my SPC bolts and see if it will make a difference. Wont be able to do it immediately but as soon as I can I will update. Thanks

update on setup , got the rear -re-rolled and adjusted the suspension a bit more , no more rubbing, only over big bumps, lowered my dampening as well. Will be heading to Etown this fall for a nice session to finally get some track time with her.

Back with a different set of wheels from 2015. Thinking of going 18x9 +22 with 255/35/18, anyone ran those specs? share some pics please.

255/40/17 17x9 +35, running 5mm spacer to make +30

Sir,

18 x 9 +22 with 255/35/18 will require "fender finesse" and even with that you will still touch the upper wheel well sides on big dips and bumps.

I was running 18 x 9.5 +22 with 235/40/18 Falken Azenis and had to gut the wheel wells. No fender liners, extreme fender rolling (like hitting things with a hammer that stuck out) and it still rubbed on really hard corners and dips sometimes. I switched to Toyo R888 in 225/40/18, added some camber, and did even more work to the wheel wells and it works! A tiny "touch" on huge dips once in a while but almost flawless otherwise. Note: I never did have to pull the fenders which was a priority for me.

I think the perfect setup in 18" for function and form is 18 x 8.5 +30 (or so) with 235/40/18. But I understand this does not look as aggressive as most would like.

The best handling setup I ever had was 16 x 8 Rota Slipstreams with 225/50/16 Falken Azenis. Honda did not engineer cars for big wide wheels... not that we can't make them work.

I hope this assists!

With BC Extreme Low Coils and SPC Camber Bolts on a previous car I was able to get it to -3.9 degrees of camber out of the front. You just had to tinker with it.

I'm thinking of running 18x9.5 +22. with 255/35/18. i'm not as low as i used to be. so some camber will be fine with me, just not excessive. we'll see how it goes.
