Wheel fitment question

So I am able to order my wheels now, and I was wondering the if I will have any shock rub with 17x8et19 SC Reps. I have camber arms and KSport Coilovers . My fenders are rolled too. I want to make sure that I will have no rubbing issues.

yeah, will be poking past the fender a decent amount. A stretched tire, something like a 205.40 will help. Depending on what ride height you go with. Slammed, you will rub pretty much any time you turn or hit a bump. I'd suggest a 17x8 but something with the ET north of 30

Yeah I am probably going to have to run camber all the way around.I was more worried about my shocks. I believe a 195/40 stretch on those should fit pretty nicely. Is it possible to fit those without pulling the fender?

Depends on how you have the suspension setup; how low you want to go and how much negative camber you can get

See this old thread for pictures:

For Sale: Mustang Saleen SC Reps.

Just figure how much suspension travel you will have. Think about the larger dips and your suspension compressing about an inch or two before hitting your fenders with the tire/wheel

Here is a better pic I found. It is a 4 bolt. But I still can't tell what they are.

My network isn't letting me upload the pic, but yeah I wasn't going to sit as low as I can go, I was going to leave a good inch or so for wheel gap.
