Test fitted 9.5

So I went to a local shop and test-fitted some Racing Hart c2s
18x9.5 +45
Like 2 cool cats on the forum warned me, they rubbed (barely) on the rear strut/coilover . Now my concern is.. if I were to run 5-7mm spacers will I run into any problems? I know I need to roll my fenders, but is that all? I would need to run neg camber also since I'm pretty low (WTF am I saying.. I am running neg camber already) . Will the neg camber bring back the rubbing even with spacers?

Here are some pics

I told you.

Use a measuring tape to determine exactly how much space you'll need to clear the strut. Keep in mind that you're test-fitting the wheels without tires on, so hopefully you'll be running stretched tires that won't stick out past the wheels' lips.

If you go with a quality brand of spacers & use the extended studs, you should be fine. You won't need to do anything more than roll your fenders & adjust your camber (if necessary). I just hope you're low enough to bring those wheels in flush with the body...

If you don't do any sporty driving you shouldn't have a problem... But spacers to put more stress on your car simply because you're pushing the wheel weight out further by placing a piece of metal between your hub and your wheel. Just know that there is a possibility that if you run spacers you could still rub the strut when you go over a bump. It probably won't be sitting on the strut when parked but if you drive I'm pretty sure you'll have a chance of running into problems with rubbing the strut. I would try and get the offset in the 30s...

Just roll your fenders when you get everything said and done, and also make sure you are running a good tire size.

Rolling the rear, buying hubcentric spacers with extended studs and 225 tires is too much work?

waste of money to rock some wheels you can wrap nice tires around imo.

I need wheels before the end of the week. I would need to order some falken tires, spacers, and then get my fenders rolled. I'll probably buy them, but won't mount them yet.

it rubs on the rear strut/coilover. I would need at least a 5mm spacer to fix that.. and about 10-15mm to run neg camber to have the wheels flush!

i hope i'm right =

Hector your diagram is sort of a good representation and sort of not. In some situations that would be a good and accurate way to look at it, but you should really see how much of a space is actually between the inside rim of the wheel and your strut when you are putting them on. You have to account for any bound that your car would experience, and how it would affect the travel inside your wheel wells. I'm not sure if you know this but whenever your shocks compress, more negative camber will ensue. So if you go through a nasty dip than there is a chance that you could still hit your wheels against your coilover.

What's your suspension setup HECz? A 10-12mm spacer should be enough to resolve the rubbing issues after you've rolled the rears. You shouldn't have to run a crazy amount of camber to make this setup work though.

Here's my 9.0 +38 rear for reference (http://farm4.static.flickr.com/3277/...b21778b9_o.jpg). The camber doesn't look too far off from the stock accord next to me. If the car was dropped another inch & a little bit of camber added, an extra 1/2 inch of wheel should be flush.
