Well, I mounted the wheels today just to see how they fit. I have -2.5 degrees of camber up front and -2 in the rear. I raised the ride height a little on all four corners just to give me a little room until Adam pulls the fenders. As you can see it should'nt need TOO much. Depending on how agressive the pull I may lower the car back down some and relax a little bit of the camber. All in all they fit better than I thought they would. I have only mild rubbing on the front fender liners cuz they are a little droopy in spots. I will have to see how much they rubs once I can manage to put some movement on the suspension. I think once the body work gets done and the fenders get pulled it should look more natural.

So what do you think? This is only test fitment phase. I definitely need to do more tweaking. Tires are a bit too meaty I think. Maybe smaller sidewall. For now I will hold off until the body guy can pull the fenders and then I want to drop the ride height back down. As I look at the pictures and the car its sinking in more and more. I gotta make the car fit the wheels.

just looks like the wheels are too big for the application...I mean you would need a huge fender flare to clear it especially in the rear. looks like the fronts would fit the rear better.

yes, they are staying gold. I will pull them some, lower it back down, and once the new side skirts, front and rear bumper goes on it will all flow better.

I got the fenders pulled (mildly) and rolled this weekend. Lowered car back down too. The passenger side came out perfect. We had complications with the drivers side. The front fender split a little. We had to weld it to keep it from splitting more. The rear one had large tack welds on the inside of the lip. So when we began to pull it some rippling occured. All in all everything should be fine with a little body work.
