I fitted Vorshlag camber plates to dial in more front camber, and that allowed me to fit a square 255/40 on a 17x9et42. It requires a 5-10mm spacer in front and niw I've got around - 2.4 degrees of camber.

If youre not adding camber, the most popular fitment is a square 17x8.5et40 with 245/40's

Have you modified the springs and shocks?

Swift Springs ~#250F/600R with a 1" drop. My Paragon Brakes rotor kit (stock size) very slightly changed my offset requirements. Im on stock dampers with Dinan Shockware recalibration.

Was it worth the it the recalibration for the magnetic shocks?
Is it stiffer, does it bottoms out on bumps?

The Dinan tune added some compression and dialed back the rebound a bit, which makes the car way more predictable in my opinion. The car bottoms out all the time (even when it was stock) so I feel the bumpstops are worthwhile as an upgrade because the car spends a lot of time on them

The OE suspension was competent enough for my skill level when I bought the car, so upgrading the plates, springs, bumpstops, and damper retune was a better and more economical path for me as I grew as a driver. I'll move to a motorsport-focused coilover eventually but the cost/benefit didnt justify it as a novice and I'm still happy enough with the current setup that im not rushing to swap it for coilovers until parts start wearing out.

How would you rate just the shock retune while keeping the factory spring?

I did plates first, then did springs, tune, and bumpstops at the same time so I dont have a specific answer. If you are experienced and can swing something like a Redshift Competition or KW Clubsport its going to have a higher ceiling for not much more money. I wanted to keep the variable dampers and see how far I could take them so I took a different route than most.
