I have been reading all the info you guys have been throwing out and I am impressed with the knowledge that is shared. Thanks for helping us noobs from wasting our money.
This thread is right on the point of what I am looking for my 2012 Boss.
I've been sliding around on stock rubber for five years, time to move on.
Here is what I have so far on the car.
Suspension: Vorshlag CC plates, stock struts & shocks w/Boss 5300T springs, Whiteline Sway bars
BMR lower control arms w/relocation brackets, Whiteline Watts Linkage, ARP studs all around, brake ducts.
Looking at the Apex C7 18x11's and use 315/30 Rivals all around.
Will this work without massaging fenders?
I'm fine with running a spacer up front, any advice where to get a quality spacer?
I do drive some on the street, main use is autocross. Might give BIR a go.
Thanks in advance for your input.
It'll be tight and I'm pretty sure that you'd need to run near the higher negative camber side just to make it fit. The 315 is a 12.6" wide carcass on the 11" rim so there won't be a lot of wiggle room. If you street mileage is much higher than your auto-X use, then you might have issues with inner front edge wear and may need really frequent rotation front to rear and running exactly 0º toe.
It's my opinion that any hub-centric spacer would be okay regardless of brand. I wouldn't hesitate to use something like Maximum Motorsport.
You'll also need clearance at the top sway bar links. Either cut the end, use washers to space it back or go aftermarket.
I have very limited experience with Rivals, but they seem okay for Auto-X though they tend to get a bit greasy when hot for track use.
