Finally my own car...
2018 Civic Si
Suspension: Skunk2 Springs - No alignment changes yet
Wheel Specs: ESR SR12 18x9.5 +40
Tires: 235/40-18 OEM all seasons
I love that setup. No rubbing at all? How much do the skunk2 springs lower the car? It looks perfect for me. Not to low.

None. I took it over the worst freeway I can find in the DFW area and even over big dips, surface changes, in a city parking garage with high degree ramps from flat, full lock turns, rail road crossing, and even over good size speed bumps. No rubbing at all. (If that changes I'll let you know but I made it a point to try to make it rub).

Offset? Also, are those sidemarkers easy to install?

They are a +35 just edited my post o.0 the side markers were super simple, took a bit of time to find the signal wire in the plug for the switchback. I ended up splicing in to the wire instead of using those cheap splicers they supplyed with the lights, bit of solder and shrinktube is a much better conn. imo

Car looks awsome, great wheel + tire choice

How much poke do you have with that setup ?

Looks great man, will look even better when you lower it a bit

Any chance we could get a more head on pic to see how much you're poking out ?

I like them so far. They are not as nice of a ride as stock (they are firmer) but you get used to it. I think lowering springs will be better ride quality but I wanted the adjustability. I plan on lowering the car more to see how low I can go without having to do fender modifications.

Volk TE37 18x9.5 +22 front, 8.5 +22 rear - No rubbing at stock height with tiny tires from my 8th gen on it.

I'm mounting up a set of 245/40/18 Falken RT615k's and lowering on Eibach pros next week. - I will update once this is done.

Really hoping I can make these wheels work without too much effort or rolling.

looks good, my guess is you will need to pull the rears a hair and do the front fender tab mod. may need to pull the fronts too. 9.5 +22 on 245s is pretty aggressive. very nice setup though man.
