    Lmao.

    The only reason some go bigger in rear is usually with a square setup, to achieve a staggered look.

    Heck....I think Johnny has larger spaces in front than he does in rear. Or maybe I'm thinking of Charlie.

    So, if I'm running fatter 135's in the back, are they not gonna need to get pushed out this much?

    I clearly have ZERO experience with this stuff. Trying to throw together a little Christmas list though

    Ry, you need to understand fitment and offset. Read up a bit in that fitment 101 thread.

    What clearance do you have now...if you measure with a rule? Measure the outer clearance. Inner is impossible on the ground.

    Well, I don't have a good ruler at the moment, but it looks like there's about 18 to 20 mm clearance up front and out back. That's kinda a rough estimate though. (I'll have to measure better later) So I'd probably play it safe and go with 12.5f/15r. I just don't know how the h&r sport springs will change things in the future. If they only lower it, I feel like that might be fine. I'm not sure if it changes the stance in any other way, though.

    no and you should get an alignment after that anyway so you'll be fine. Anthony will do it for like $40. I need one too.
