Not sure, but I would guess it would not be more than -2 deg in the front, -2.5 in the rear with the old suspension (12" fender lip to wheel center all around). With my new Tein's I'm up to around 13.5" all around and less camber.

EDIT: MY WHEELS ARE 16X7.5 +32, NOT 16X8, sorry. Tires are 205/45/16 T1R's.

Actually, I weighed them last night on my postal scale and they weigh in at 15lbs 2.8oz. My 17x7.5 Volk CE28Ns weigh less...too funny.

Like you said previously, the wheels started off as blanks and they had a machine shop bore the 4x100 pattern in them. One was "oval" in shape and in no way is it going to balance. I have to get that one replaced before I go to my first track day.

I love the K1s. If the 6UL hadn't come up, I would probably be jumping on this. I wish they weren't so heavy in the 15x8 size, though, and the offset isn't optimal for running BIG rubber.

Emilio's 6UL's in +40 offset are pretty much ideal for running the most rubber without contact to the car...funny, that was his whole idea behind their design and production

Sorry guys, totally forgot about this thread and to come answer questions. Running lanny's alignment which camber is not very aggressive at all. Was going to change it but I like the tight tolerance bettween the tire and fender. Looks clean.

I guess! Brian and the guys at goodwin fitted 16x8 enkei rpf1's with 245/35/16 toyo t1r's with out rolling the fenders.

Emilio's got 245/40s on his car, at more than 9" of treadwidth. I don't think the Toyo street tires are 9+" wide.

949racing.com has a 15x8 wheel as well. About $139 each and I think they weigh less.

Was unaware of this last time I talked to him he was running 225/45/15's like me! What type of tire and what diameter? I'd say there close but if he's running Hankook RS2's or something more aggressive than a T1R's in design I'm sure the foot print is.
