Why is that? Your previous wheels were +45 right?
Thanks for all info and advise.

Yes, but with a 25mm spacer...

+45 would most likely hit the suspension components.

I don't have any experience with the KW's but you can always run a small spacer if they don't clear.

Im running 19 x 9.5 with +27 offset with 245/35 up front and this setup barely clears the KW v2. With a +33, you will sit 5mm in more towards the coilover strut perch. This will be very close depending on your tire selection.

Heres the stock rears upfront. 19*9,5 et 27, camber I'm not sure of ( there definately is some, since the car has "camber mod" with the suspension) but will go for an alignement soon. Tires are 245/35. They fit nicely and don't touch anywhere, but there isn't tons of room (but surely enough). (Dont mind the dirt allover...)
