Been noticing the rear wheel well gap on my car and honestly sometimes it gets to me. I'm sure lowering it a bit back there maybe an option but not sure if I would want to do that. I'm on a stock size tire 275-40-20. It looks kinda skinny and it would be great to fill it up back there to make it look more aesthetic and meaty. Now the front wheel well is fine to me.

I've always admired the 18 inch wheel look with more sidewall and a taller tire and I'm sure it would fill up that area better making the car look more beefy but not sure what 18 inch rear wheel to use that would match my stock wheels.

The rear wheel gap kinda looks like someone really skinny with a tanktop with no muscle or like a T-shirt with a lot of sleeve gap. What do you guys recommend I do? Hopefully your able to see it in this picture.

put some 6MM spacers on the back, put a 285/40/20 on it...Michelin PS4 designed for the Porsches comes in that size...looks good on our cars. (Did this exact thing on my car)

If you want to swap the back wheels for 10.5'' or 11'' Replicas you can do that and go with a 305 or a 315/35/20 tire...

If thats not enough, you can always lower it.

I have a full eibach pro kit with the pro alignment front control arms and rear camber bushings. Highly recommend it. Gets rid of the wheel gap, keeps the factory bilstein shocks, and you can still fit a bigger tire without rubbing. I run 305s on a 20x10.5 in the back. Not to mention it gives the car a mean stance.

Interesting how much is the full eibach pro kit? Do you happen to have any pics of that stance?

I plan on putting some 20x10.5 replicas along with a 305 nitto drag radial in the rear when these set of tires go. Not sure if that would look any beefier other than a wider tire look but probably still same size tire height if not a tad smaller with a sidewall height of 35 with the 305s instead of 40 like the 275s possibly exposing more wheel Gap.

I wish I could do an 18inch wheel to get more sidewall height instead of a 20inch wheel but not sure which wheel would look good with the 5 spokes I have on now hence why I'm going with a 20x10.5 hellraiser wheels from pk auto to match.

This is everything I have on mine. I saw multiple people say that they could not get the alignment in spec without the alignment kit camber arms and bushings, so I played it safe and I love the results.

I think your gap looks perfect tbh. I’m not a fan of the lowered look at all. I just see saggy pants for some reason lol. Your current stance is perfect.

Agreed. That gap is supposed to be there and differentiates a car versus a dinky car. Lowered cars still work but don't look right because the eye always expects vertical travel.

I'd rather see this:

Red-Key,

If you want to get a set of the springs;
I Have a set of the Eibach pro springs that I dont think I am going to use, don't feel like buying the spc front arms or the rear arms with 120mm length added for the camber adjustment issues.

PM me, I got them off someone on here 2nd hand and they went directly in the basement in the box.

If you want to do a 17" conversion, a 315/50/17 fills it to the very point of spilling.....
