Wheel fitment with Dinan springs + M4 LCA

Right now I am running Dinan springs, and VMR V804 wheels at 19x8.5 front et35, and 19x9.5et45 rear.

If I did the M4 LCA upgrade, would I have an issue with wheel fitment? Would this basically make it necessary to do the M4 TS as well?

OverRev found "front tires (235/40/R18 RE71R on 18x8 ET40) rubbing a lot." He is on H&Rs so 1" front drop.

rwalker found "Before LCAs I had -2.5deg camber to fit my 255/35r18 fronts on 18x9et36. F8x LCAs introduced another 0.9deg, about 1" of forward movement, leading to rubbing in the front upper part of the fenders, requiring fender rolling."

Icy J found "had to replace 10mm spacer with 5mm and raise height twice to minimise rubbing." ..... notice this man is running a poke i have never really seen before up front and slammed on 225 tires.

Bee Pee found "rough measurement of the M4 arms being approx 1/2" longer"

Also refer to my post below, i put together yesterday, if you want to do this on a budget and right....

also, note..... i am doing it with Dinan springs and VMRs 18x8.5et45 on 235 tires.... Yes e45 no spacers Will report back! Waiting on all parts and my connection for custom machined spacers....

This guy in the UK has been making custom spacers based off what our TS retrofit needs. Just need to request it. Link of specs are in link I attached above

This is pretty useful info, and i had looked quite a bit, but none of it quite applies directly to my setup exactly. Since i have 19x8.5 front et35 with 225/35/19, but I'm also on dinan springs which are milder.

I am very curious about your results!

Based on yours vs mine.. we get the summary attached below

The speedo error says mine is -0.73%, so your final tire diameter will be alittle more. Although their is a 10mm difference in wheel offset, the tire variation we have seems to almost even things out. Look how close the tire limit is on our outsides... if i have no rub, and this photo is relatively accurate, you shouldnt have much of an issue either. Will report back in a few weeks when installed.

I'm gonna be right here with you in this fitment process. just ordered m4 lca's, ts and Dinan springs.. i really want to fit 245/35ZR19 front and 275/30ZR19 rear but that might be ballzy.. and not a fan of poke which I'm pretty sure would happen up front.
i have a shot(dented and bubbled) set of
VMR v703's
Front: 8.5 x19 et 40 with Michelin pilot 4S 235/35 R19
Rear: 9.5x19 et 45 with Michelin pilot 4S 265/30 R19
https://www.2addicts.com/forums/show....php?t=1603999

I will confirm fitment after the arms and springs.. this setup is fast AF but i would love one more size up if i can

I'll keep ya posted
