OEM Ford Fusion wheels 18x8 ET55
245/40/18 Firestone Indy 500
Powder coated semi-gloss black

Planning to use my 12.5mm ST suspension spacers with those as my daily setup next summer. Will post pics next spring when I install them, already on winters now! For anyone wondering, they clear the Brembos without need for spacers, with plenty of room to the back of the spokes.

Just an updated shot of how it sits with the 18x9.5 +38 Work T7R with 265/35R18. I'll work on getting side shots soon.

Camber plates are now Ground Control, here's why - At this ride height (45.25" FTG) using Vorshlag camber plates there is interference at the inside front tire with the Öhlins spring and perch/adjuster. Vorshlag top hats have around 30mm taller stack height over stock top hats (I am not sure they clearly advertise this). Ground Control top hats are same height if not 5mm shorter than the stock top hat.

Some more pics of the winter setup. Sorry for dirty car. ;)

It won't stay this height for much longer. Rubbing at the outer drivers rear, maybe 5mm up should do the trick and bring back the factory rake a bit.
That height looks perfect imo. Are you running rear camber arms? Some more camber in the rear would help with the rubbing. I'd also consider switching to a 255 width tire.

Yes, I have camber arms and I'm sitting at -2.6 R now. I will align again and set to -2.9 R (Hank specs). That should help for sure.

I did raise the rear about 4 spins, it seems to help although there is still rub on large freeway dips only. The extra camber I think will solve it. Thanks for the suggestion.
