Yea I'm usually not a fan of white. But I thought those went really good with the red as well. And no I didnt drive with them. I didnt want to ruin my buddys tires. Because those wheels would definitely rub.

I run rather agressive camber in the rear (-2.5) on a set of 17x8.5 w 255's and it just barely touches the rubbers of the wheel arches on hard corners and I'm running a mild ET48 offset.
Yea idk if you read my post but they were my buddies wheels. We put them on just for fun. Because you are correct, there is no question that those wheels would rub.

And just a little fact for everyone. The only thing we could fit between the tire and the strut was a piece of paper. My key couldnt even make it through.
