Great morning,

I'm running this setup so far,
Titan 7 18/9.5/ +36 off set (prototype Titan 7 wheels)

Not the +45 off set they sell anymore

Wrapped in federal rsrr 265/35/18

Will I Rub if I lower them on swift springs?

See pics
Thanks ladies and gents

You will rub

You would need to pull the alignment pin at the front shock tower and run negative camber in the rear, which would most likely need to be under -2.0, depending how wide your tires measure

Damn... Any suggestions on camber arms?

New to the wheels and tires game and not sure what my solutions are....
Don't want to pay a restocking free for the swift springs.

Will the camber ruin the performance?

You can run SPC or Eibach rear camber arms

There is slight camber front and rear from the factory already, I can't remember the exact numbers though, a quick search and you should be able to find it

Running this setup will induce a bit of understeer, which the factory setup negates based on it's specs

Tires will obviously wear faster when you have negative camber so you should be rotating them regularly for even wear

Thanks for the info.

Looks like I'm returning the springs lol.. 400 for camber arms... They are high on crack.

And don't want to mess with the performance.

Just as a fyi Federal tires usually run a size bigger so a rsrr 265 = other tire manufacture 275. I'm personally getting the rs-pro at 255/35/18 fitted onto titan 7 tr-10 18x9.5. The rs-pros are suppose to have just as much grip as the rsrr but with less road noise.

No lie my wheel guy was looking at my 265 tires and going... Bro they look like 275.

Good to know.. I get almost no wheel spin with these bad boys... Kind of bummed I have to return the springs... Cambering my car was not what I had in mind.

Oh well that 400$ can go toward my koyorad
