So let me get this right... are you running a 45et up front and a 44et in the rear? or a 15et in front and a -6et in rear

Nevermind, I just looked up the stock wheels... they are a 45et stock, so after adapters you end up with 30et in front and 20et in rear. That makes sense now.

20et up front on 10"s? You're my hero!!

Ok Gman answer this question then. Say I was to run 9.5" in front and 10.5" in rear, what is the lowest offsets I can run with rolling fenders? I've got to run low and wide as possible... Congrats again!

It also depends on what size tire your going to be running, bc i am running a 235/35/19 so its stretched allowing me to lower my offsets. And when you say "low and wide", are talking about driving low, and have wide aggressive wheels? or low offset and wide wheels?

Looks awesome. Pictures like this almost wants to make me get a G8 and install bag it. Reminds me of the bippu styled cars I'm used to seeing.
