Default Vip Ls460l

This won't be messed with for quite some time, but the topic will be a placeholder.

I got a dark blue LS460L used in Colorado.



Got the rear seat options that I wanted.



Datasystem Air Controller



I was scared to take this thing apart, but I made it through.



Low like an old town car.



I got a steal of a deal on some 22in VIP Modulars.



Now I'm working on getting them to fit.



I was trying to work with Fig's Engineering to get some adjustable arms made, but we shall see what comes from the measurements he took.

Yeah stock air doesn't go super low. I'll go aftermarket after I knock out some other mods first.

looks like you need a little less offset there. You're going to jack those fenders pretty hard.

Other than that they look pretty good.

Just need a lot more camber. Trying to keep the fender work to a minimum. Everyone gets weak offset/not so wide wheels or widebody's the fenders with these. I want to do just camber if possible.

I would be concerned that with the angle that you need you will be riding on the sidewall too much or at least too close to it. you'll be getting half the mileage out of the tires if that.

Even with a normal camber like on my WRX I still end up having my tire wear reduced drastically because of the camber on them and it's only a few degrees. Granted it's at a level that is great for cornering. IDK I guess I'm getting a little more practical as I get older.

From what it looks like you only need about 3-4cm less offset and you should be okay. Can those modulars be adjusted or no?

Yeah, this car isn't going to get good wear life out of tires. I'm not going for the oni-camber (see below), but I don't think the rears are going to see less than -10 degrees.

I think it'd be a bit more than that. The rears stick out a good 1.5-2in past the fenders and the fronts are about .5-1in. The wheels are three piece, but the car is going to be built around the wheels, not vice versa.

Sell the wheels and get a smaller setup. Those arent fitting without some serious fender work (Roll/Pull) and/or serious camber.
Im all up for going crazy but thats gonna need some serious work that I wouldnt do on a new car.
