Remind me what tires and offsets you're running with that?

I pulled the trigger on the 18x11-6 and 18x12+6s.

Since there's some lead time, I'm planning to grab tires at Christmas.  After much measuring, I think the key to 315 fronts will be running a 6" spring to move the coil perch up and away from the tire.  We'll see, but I'm committed now.

Sorry for the delay, Joel. the wheels are 18X10.5 with a -10 offset in the front and the rears are 18x12 with a -4 offset. Tires are Nitto NT01s 275/40/18 and 335/30s out back.

Hey guys, I like where this thread's going.  I'm about to start sizing for wheels for my FC and considering the Ronin WB, have you all been happy with the setups you listed?  Any updates since then?  Seems like people are going with the 12s in the back, bit of a mix up front.  I'm running ground control coilovers, the car's being built for track days but will see street as well, thanks!

I had a bit too much negative up front (poke) and ended up dropping down closer to +0.  Both 315s up front and 335s in back are really pushing it (IE you may need a touch of camber to avoid rubbing.

Having played with several FC setups now I think my final recommendation for the FC Ronin widebody would be:

F:  295/30r18 on 18x11-2
R: 315/30r18 on 18x12+4

Thanks Joel!  I'm coming from 245 square so the 295/315 setup is plenty big for me, appreciate the insight.
