225/40/18. Very slight angle. Combined with the ET30, once I lower it should help

But truth be told, since I won't be lowering much, in hind sight I almost wish I had selected 235. I'll be selecting that next time.

^ you'd likely rub in the front with ET30 and 235 tires, that is, without camber plates, and is somewhat tire dependent. (we all know - not all 235s are the same with from brand to brand / model to model)

Thanks for confirming what I thought. I am looking at BC coilovers and it looks like it comes with the ability to change camber juuuuust a bit. For the time being, I'll stick with 225s I guess!

After work trip's per diem and saving up, finally pulled the trigger on getting a Baun Performance Downpipe and Midpipe! Being able to get both for the price of an IE downpipe... Win win! Can't wait to drive it
