Wheels: Outer Plus Toybox Hethel Wheels 16x7 ET+22 Front, 17x8 ET+35 Rear
Tires: Toyo R888 195/50/16 Front, 235/45/17 Rear
Suspension: Fred's Penske 2-way shocks, 500F/700R (stock aero)
Brakes: AP Racing 4-wheel BBK

Rear Toybox wheels do not clear brakes. They required a ~10.8 mm spacer and this leaves about 2 mm of brake clearance. I was forced to downsize tires from 255/40 to 235/45. Wanted a meatier tire. Prob my favorite setup. No rubbing but clearance is tight.
