Eibach Pro Kit?

I just bought some new rims. 22x9.5 +20 with a 265/30-22 tire for the front, and a 22x10.5 +25 with a 10mm spacer with a 315/25-22 in the rear. Does anyone know if the 1" drop from the eibach lowering springs would be a bad idea or would it be fine?

Your rear wheel offset will net a +15 which will not work. Your wheel will be sticking out of the wheel well.

Yes I know it will be sticking out, it will stick out a total of 12mm past the wheel well. I'm just wondering if the 1" drop would work. Maybe I'm confused, are you saying the wheel won't fit, or the 1" drop won't fit with that wheel?

I think you'll be asking for trouble sticking out past the lip when you are adding a bigger wheel AND a drop.

Why are you adding 10mm spacers to the already low offset of +25?

I'm guessing brake clearance issue. It sounds like he really just bought the wrong wheels for the job...

you do realize that 12mm is approximately half an inch right? i dunno, you should rethink your wheel choice IMHO

The wheels are status knights, I've seen pictures on a ss. Not that bad IMO. With rolled fenders, won't be bad at all.
