Here is what I've done. I bought a set of used OTG 10mm spacers, made 1/8" copies, got the OTG Camber shims, and have 5mm spacers on the wheels studs. 1/8" = about 2mm. So Im at about -2 offset on 15x8's stock tires.

I do think I put the camber shim in backwards on the drivers side, It turns inward towards the door more than the passenger and I made sure the passenger one was in right.

So tomorrow at lunch I get to pull the drivers side apart and switch some stuff. I'm going to turn over the camber plate and switch it with the spacer.

Note: I made 6 1/8" copies, only used one per side.

Before & After.

The 5mm spacers can easily be removed.

It all depends on your offset of your wheels bro! Most people are running 10mm and camber shims.

Padanky is running an extra 7mm with the 5mm wheel spacer and 2mm shim.

Keoki, I have the same exact rims as Padanky does. My biggest concern is rubbing, even though I'm not dropped too low yet, my subs weight the car down another full inch. I don't wanna ruin my wheels. They're nice for the price, and so many people tell me they like them.

I'll get more pics, it was dark by time I finished. Boom box, you won't hit the rim with this set up, only the tire. I'm on the Df210's

I want to run camber, but not on 18" for everyday use...I'm actually searching around for some beater rims...prob 16s and I have tires already so i might run the camber with them...what do you plan on doing with the other shimms you made, I coud use anther 2mm of space out back...

Only took me 15 minutes to remove the tire, hub and switch everything around and put everything back.

Still new to all this camber stuff, but could you run the 5mm w/2mm copies and camber or would you need at least 10mm to not rub? Trying to understand all this camber talk.
Any rubs yet Chris? You had literally a finger worth of space between the tire sidewall and fender, like a glove.
