Hey guys, Just installed the super deep this weekend and it looks amazing!

I'll confirm the offsets and get back to you. It's rubbing upfront a bit but that's because I went with a 255/35/20 tire.

LOVE it! I just couldn't deal with ANY rubbing or chance of rubbing. I like to push my car to the limit and not be worried in the back of my mind that my vehicle may be destroying itself.

But MAN... Does that look MEAN!!!!

Lacster - That looks REALLY good.

Question: What is the main factor contributing to the rubbing issue? Lowered car, wheel offset or tire size? Combo of all 3? Curious because I just ordered a set of F14s about a week ago (20x9 semi-c in front, 20x10.5 sdc in rear), and want to see if I can fit Michelin PSS 255/35 in front and 285/30 in rear....then install Eibach springs about a week later...hopefully without any rubbing issues.

Out if curiosity, what offsets did you order? I'm running Eibach's and was considering this setup.

I called Forgestar directly to get the offset info, and was told that they "do not disclose custom offset info" but that perfect fitment was guaranteed to be flush with the fender. I ordered them from **********s, a shop in SoCal. They do a ton of business with Forgestar and also guaranteed that the fitment would be flush with the fender through their program.

I don't understand why there is so much freaking secrecy regarding this, but I guess they have their reasons. However, I notice that several fellow F10 owners in the forum are able to find out their Forgestar offset numbers so my situation appears to be unique.

Thank you sir!

It was rubbing because I went with a 255/35/20 tire which was a little too square for my aggressive offsets but I wanted the meat w/ the 9.5 wheel.
The setup you're running will be flush as they say but I think a 255/35 tire might be a little too beefy for a 9.0 width wheel.

I would recommend going with a 245/35 & 285/30 PSS setup. You don't want to go too beefy just incase the wheel is flush to the fender then your tire will poke.

Forgestar is a specialized wheel company that makes customized specs per setup. You have the option to choose your own specific offsets and that's not a secret but if you let them choose then they don't disclose for some reason.

I see you're in SoCal so if you have time we have an F10 meet on the 29th in Irvine if you want to see my setup in person.

Got it. That makes sense. And I am planning to attend the meet up on the 29th and will definitely check out your set up in person.

Wow Kevin super deep all around looks insane.

I also agree, 255/35/20 in front with a 20x9 semi-concave with the forgestar suggested offset will rub.

I have a similar setup PanaricanDad ordered. Maybe even more aggressive than, and 245/35/20 tires sit perfectly with a drop on H&R springs.

Please keep me updated with the Eibach setup along with pictures as i seen many other memebers drop their cars with H&R's or KW coilovers.

Thanks.
