    hi , I am new to the forum, I was just wondering if anyone can help me with the stance of my car I am going to get a set of coilys and wind them all the down 80 90 mn maby was also thinking borbet A wheels the only problem is they are 7.5" and I don't know if there wide enough does any one know how much wider I could go on the rear ? I was also thinking maby -3 to -4 degrees of camber with a slight bit of poke does all this sound achievable without any serious modifications ?thanks jake

    It depends, you can run staggered, but really to get wheels sat nice on an 8P, you need at least 8.5s. FK coils will go -120mm, I'd avoid JOMs.
