Ordered H&R 15mm bolt on spacers all the way around.
19/9 et25. 245/35
19/10.5 et20 265/35
Lowered almost 2 inches now.
Shooting for a half inch lower all around.
Setting camber at -2.2 front -2.5 rear.
Fenders are rolled but not pulled or flat rolled.

Thought??? Yes, No?
Pics of similar???
Just in for some feedback and similar setups.
Thanks.
I'm confused..... well, more than normal.

Your quoted specs (and pics?) are before or after spacers?

Oops. Sorry. Should be clarified.
The pictures I took are of my wheel set up without spacers. I just ordered them from concept Z today.
The wheel and tire specs however are my current set up.

no damage to the wheel itself?

So, you're going with 9" front at +10 and rears at 10.5 +5 and you're dropping it another 0.5"? Well, I have no say in this other than "If it fits and you're happy with it...."

Personally think it looks fine but your choice.

No, never damaged a wheel due to improper mounting.

Now if someone could do something about those mobile curbs that jump out to hit cars' wheels....

No garuntees I'm going lower. Hoping to see some similar setups. May need to roll fenders a little more. My next set of wheels and tires will be less function and more fashion. Lol. These are my track wheels/tires.

Wow, someone went to a lot of trouble to look stupid.
