Yeah, chances are high, I'm going to see what it looks like once tires are mounted up.

Yup, but I definitely see a 10-12mm with these.

Style 32's in effect, and for now, they appear to fit with no signs of rubbing the strut! I only went for a very brief test drive around the block and down the road on Saturday though, so need more seat time and a good solid highway drive.

Also, I found that with a loaded car, my right rear tire is rubbing the fender liner inside just a tad, so at least now I know where that noise is coming from when I have a full compression with 4 people in the car..

This car feels SO SO SO incredibly planted and flawless on brand new wheels and tires it's a feeling you will never forget once you can experience it. Pics are on my phone so they will be coming in here in the next post. Front gap is large, but I'm likely done with lowering my car, unless the urge becomes such that I cannot take it anymore and I end up getting some coilovers (where I will likely run into fitment issues with these wheels for SURE). So I will deal with the gap for now, after all these are my winter set...

Found a decent set of old center caps that will work for now...











Iím hoping it settles a bit more once I drive around for awhile.. also may decide to put a small spacer all around just for a buffer since the front clearance is so close.

Just took a nice long drive through some back roads and up on the highway for a bit, car incredibly solid and steering heavier due to the bigger fronts but I like it. Will pull them off in a week or so and inspect inner edge of strut and inside edge of wheel and tire to see if any rubbing..

A week or so ago my "service engine soon" light came on, so I ran the codes. Got a few to come up, then several days later the light went off. So yesterday while I was waiting for my son to get done his golf lessons, I ran the codes again and will post up what I found in the next post.

EWS voltage code strange, as is the LED code for alarm..
And what's up with the tank sensor without fuel pump?
IHKA Auxiliary water pump I believe are those 2 heater valves to the right of the engine when you open the hood. Everything seems to be working ok, but maybe they are soft-failing...
Outside temp sensor may have come loose when I installed the latvian pork chops, but the temp still reads fine, so no clue why I am getting that code either...
