Camber Advice

Sup Fellas! I need some advice from the experts.. So I recently purchased a set of BBS wheels in the following specs:

Front: 20x10 + 18
Rear 20x11 +40

Looking for advice on how to fit these with my KW HAS. I'm thinking I need to purchase a set of camber plates, will I need front and rear camber plates? I'm planning on running 265/30 or 255/30 tires up front and 295/30 in the rear. Besides Camber plates what additional parts will I need? Would I be better off getting another set of coilovers? I'd prefer to keep my EDC features.

TIA!

Rear is probably fine. Don't see an issue. That front offset is gnarly though. A whole inch further out than stock. Even if it does clear, it's going to look really weird if you don't get camber plates for the front. The front wheel is going to be sticking out of the fender otherwise.

Would I be okay with getting GC camber plates? Or should I get adjustable tie rods as well etc? What do you recommend?

With aftermarket front camber plates, you won't need adjustable tie rods for the front as there is ample adjustment on the OEM tie rod after getting your camber dialed in... Unless you go with a crazy camber setting. Around -2.2 camber will get you in a good spot visually with your 20x10 +18 wheel.

As far as I know, there are no camber plates for the rear. But you will be fine with whatever camber naturally occurs for a 20x11 +40 wheel (you can adjust more/less with the eccentric bolt). If you do choose to adjust the camber in the rear, you can max it out to about -2.2 (depending on your drop). If you do max out the camber though, your toe adjustment will be maxed out at around 0. If you want to adjust toe-in for the rear at maxed out camber, you will need adjustable tie rods that have a bigger range than OEM.

Thanks for the feedback man! This answers my question 👍🏽👍🏽
