Front wheels off set

Guys I need some help with this one; after installing the five lug and 3000GT front brake and using evo 9 Rims; the front wheels stuck out the fender but not the rear with the same size rims .I really don't want used spacer any help or idea thanks.

More negative camber.

Re: Front wheels off set

The track width on these cars is just different (wider in the front)

So either a +45 wheel in the front, if that will still clear the brakes and suspension, or a +25/10mm spacers in the rear. Assuming a 17x8" +35 Evo wheel.

An evo wheel can definitely tuck with some camber. Those 3000gt rotors are probably a little thicker then stock too, adding more offset.

Re: Front wheels off set

I agree with both of you guys that camber will tuck the top of the tire but the rest of the wheel is still sticking out past the fender way more than the front. I believe this is what the OP is talking about. I've always disliked it myself. I can say with 245/40's on a 17x8 +35 wheel I don't have any room with Evo struts to go to a +45 wheel. In the process of putting some KW v3's on so maybe then.

FWIW I have the 2G 3SI front brake setup and the rotor hats aren't any thicker than stock.

Re: Front wheels off set

If you look at this pic of my car it doesn't look like the front wheel is any farther out than the rear. The front does have more negative camber than the rear but not so much that it looks like the bottom of the wheel still sticks out farther than the rear. That is -2.5 degrees up front and -1.2 in the rear. Adding negative camber is the easiest way to tuck the tire, and the handling is better to boot.

Wheel specs are 17x8 +35
