Default downforce wide body front fenders 3+ vs wheel fitment guide

i was wondering if any one has any information on how down force fenders affect the s2000 wheel fitment guide

+63 or higher offset: 7.5" - 8.5" wide wheel, if this is the max for fronts (245 or 255) then what would the max tire be with the down force fenders and what would the ideal width/off set for the rims be

I have run 17x10 +35 with a 255 on my downforce fronts and they fit. They add 30mm so you can theoretically lower the offset by 30mm and the wheel will fit (assuming it is something that would have fit the OEM fender). Ideal depends on what you are running on the rear as well.

Make sure you shave down the inner lip on the downforce fenders (ask me how I know. Lol)

+35 to +40 with a 255 (on a 9/9.5/10) is perfect with 3-3.5* camber

Hmmm... anyone have an idea how much camber I'd have to run with 255/35/18 tires on a 18x9.5 +40 wheel? Or how -3-3.5° camber affects handling?
Already have the wheels and downforce fenders (still have to install them) but I still need to buy the tires and I'm not sure I want to adjust the camber too much.

Thanks for the tip on the inner lip btw!

Sorry for thread jack btw!

You should not need that much camber for those wheels and downforce fenders. Should be able to get away with -2.5. -3 or 3.5 would be what people do if they want to try and fit that on OEM rolled fenders.

295 is to wide for a 10 inch wheel IMO. That fits an 11-11.5 inch wide wheel.
