    Ok so I'm looking to do either the xxr 531 18x9.5 or the 521 18x10 on the front of my cobra. I have a upr k member and mm coilovers up front. My previous wheels were 18x9 +24 and they were about flush with the fender. The 531 comes in a +20 or +35 offset. I'm afraid that the +20 will stick out too much and the +35 will sit in too far and hit the coilovers. The 18x10 521 is +25 and I'm afraid it will do both but I've seen Cobras on the site with them and it looked good. Can anyone with some experience with these wheels please help me out?

    I have XXR 521 18x10 +25 in front of mine. They fit fine.

    What is your suspension setup?

    I have Varrstoen in 18x9.5ET30 with MM coilovers (with MM top plates) and they poke out a little AND also hit the coilovers which can be corrected by giving more pos camber at the knuckle and neg camber at the top plate. I would go with 35 to have them flush with the good camber setup, but do you have the MM caster-camber plates?

    I'm also running MM LCA, but I guess that does not change anything.

    Yes I have mm caster camber plates. Do you think there is enough adjustment in the knuckle to handle a 35 mm offset?
