I have the Rallitek 2" lift kit with spacers. It is the KYB struts and Rallitek sport springs. These will replace my coilovers on the car currently. I also ordered 15x7 +15 offset Sparco rims with 215/75/15 BFG tyres. Looking at it, I think I will need extended lugs, and hopefully i dont have rubbing issues in the fender with the tires. I also have Perrin swaybars and endlinks installed, and my Fozzie makes about 320 WHP. It's been too hot for me to try to work on the car this week. Advise on rim/ tire fitment. This Road racer is confused!! :) Thanks a bunch

Ive confirmed the lugnuts have the same amount of grab on the thread than my current rim which is like +48, so thats a time saver.

Sorry y'all! Ronavirus kept me REALLY busy at work since March, and I'm only getting back to my thread today.
-burela699 yes, like Natedog replied 215/75R15. brake clearance includes a relocation bracket with the lift kit. On full locking turns, the front rubs a bit on the fenderwell liner. Not an issue for me.

Since the car is now over 12 years old (manufacture period, not model year), i've replaced several exhaust parts as well. I'm running perrin EL headers with UP, and swapped out my perrin (22mm) front and (19mm) rear sway bar bushings. I'll be replacing other parts as time goes on, I want to keep this car forever, so all the bushings will be replaced this year, as well as the radiator, turbo, and my turbo back system (currently running perrin catless turboback).
A tune will be done once I complete the turbo install. Hope yall having a fun 2020, it's been challenging for me to say the least.
