On regards to fitment, I have the C1Ms with 205s on my 94 and they fit fine with my r-package bilsteins. This shock/ spring combo is a lower ride height than a stock 96, but i don't know if you are still on stock suspension. Now I have flex and I am at 12"f and 12.25" rear and the fronts needed to be rolled. So if you are at close to stock ride height, you should be fine.

My brother has c1m wheels and kumho asx in 205/50/15... no problem, he's on konis w/ ground controls, and its maybe 1/2" lower than stock, but really... they fit pretty damn well.

We kicked around the idea of doing just that.

I am stock height gentlemen. Sorry, I should have mentioned that. I'm not sure if I'm going to lower it or not. She is my DD and I am getting the R model lower spoiler in the mail any day now. I don't want to risk scraping it all up.

So if I do lower it at all; I was planning on getting the R suspension. I am more into filling up the fenderwells at stock height than slamming it down. Jersey roads are not very kind.

Thankyou all for your input. I'll let you all know on friday how its going.

New top, TR wheels, 205 all seasons, R lip, cruise control, and r package suspension, can't roll fenders, can't find an all season to fit the 15x9's, I like young boys, sound like a sick build...lol

I apologize for any confusion our call caused. Our intention was to make sure you would be happy with your wheels and tires when they arrive.

Unfortunately not everyone researches their purchases as thoroughly as you have and so we ere on the side of caution when reviewing orders. We don’t expect the application to rub but on rare occasion on a car that may not be “straight” it does.
The other concern is the look. The low offset and wider tire fill up the fender well more that the some other fitments. It’s a great look and most people like it, especially if you are willing to force extra air into your cylinders. For some it is too aggressive, it does through more road debris on the side of the car and sits out from the body of the car as it curves under.
We don’t know in advance what is your personal preference.

We call because of our testing (we have an mechanical engineer (an ND grad and a club racer) on staff and cad/cam tools we use to measure wheels and vehicles) and feedback we receive from customers. We’ve found it is easier for customers if we address concerns and correct possible issues before the product arrives than to have to ship product back and forth. A five minute phone call can save time in the long run.

I traced your order and UPS shows the wheels and tires out for delivery today. There is a delay in reporting at times so they may have been delivered.

I appreciate your business and expect that you will love the new wheels and tires.

Is the wheel fitment guide no longer included in your shipments? My buddy received a fitment instruction sheet with his TR 15x9's. You can always order a 6UL and use their data for fitment since the dimension are pretty similar.

Tim.

Way to go above and beond here. I see that you joined just to explain things. I appreciate that to no end.

I understand why Lee wanted to check up on this order. I guess I got alittle offended, in that he thought I didn't know what I was buying. I'm sorry for that. I know not everyone pays attention to offset and I jumped the gun.

What really got me was, I was expecting delivery by Friday and was being told that it was put on hold. Well I got them thursday. A day earlier than expected. Thank you. They look awesome.

I did do alot of research. Thats why I wanted a +30. I like a wide stance. This being a daily driver I wanted to go as wide as possible without needing an insane camber alignment. So today is the day that I will be putting them on. I just got home from work here @6am so off to sleep for a few. Thanks again Tim.

I have General UHP 205s on the C1Ms and haven't had any fitment issues with the shocks or fenders. I have Koni sports and stock springs at the moment.

+1 for 6ULs and +10 to the man who designed them (and the copied C1Ms)

I have the C1M's (+30) on my stock height '90 MA with Dunlop Direzza's in 195-50-15. They fit fine ... no rolling necessary, and I'm pretty sure my shocks are far from new, so there might be a bit of sag there.

The Dunlops hang just about perfectly ... about as far out as you can go without actually being outside the fender. You can't pass inspection here if the tires are outside the fender any amount.

I weighted the tires, rims, valve + lugnuts ... 33 lbs.

Tire Rack did the same thing to me ... as I understand it, they will do that on any non-stock offset or diameter because they don't want people sending them back. If it's close, they're going to give you the warning. I can give them that.

Here's some photo's to check out with those wheels/tires (it's OK if you laugh at the muffler ... I do. Car came that way; haven't changed it yet).

EDIT: Missed your post where you said they had arrived and are installed. I'll leave the photos for posterity in case someone else digs through this thread later.
