Like a tank. In a good way.

Worried about the tires hitting, especially as the rear shunts over to one side during compression ... the issue with lowered panhard setups.

Adjustable panhard rod will help for sure. Anything lower than 1.5" should be using one, as a rule of thumb here.

What rim sizing offset, center bore diameter and tires sizes are you running ??

I would guess 15x8 +20. Maybe a 16". Those wheels only come in a +20 offset as far as I know. The front probably sticks out a little more too. Common problem on CSMs that is usually only more noticeable with an aggressive offset wheel.

it dose sticks out a lil bit more in the front but i can pull the front fenders easy i think the rear is going to be a lil bit harder to pull.i would also like to get a set of coilovers or a set of stiffer struts and springs because right now the rear is super soft. the wheels are 16x8+20 with a 225 45 bridgestone G-force tires.

How is the fit looking on the front wheels? Did you ever get around to pulling the front fender and lowering the car down?
