So, I'm about to pull the trigger on another set of rims. It was a total shot in the dark when I picked up my first set niche Citrine M155 18x9.5 +40 225/40 nankang ns-2r for $300 but they are heavy as shit about 28/29 lbs a piece before tires, and they are a little chipped up as the price would suggest. I want to go with the Artisa Artformed Night in 18x9.5 or 18x8.5 +35 that come in around 19 lbs a piece but I'm indifferent about the sizes because I like the poke on my set up now but the drivability is a little rough due to 40psi and stretched side walls so I'm coming here for your stancy boi suggestions. Lowered on eibach pro-kit lowering springs looking to move to air in a year/year and a half. So let me know 9.5 or 8.5 and new tire sizes

Right now I’m riding on Avid’s, 17x8 35 offset 225/45/17 Pirelli’s. I had to set my camber slightly negative in the front on my KSport’s to not rub.

The 9.5 will not tuck on air or springs and will rub but the 8.5 will tuck and not rub with a little camber. Keep that in mind if you're going air later. Both will rub when going much lower than springs will go. The 9.5 will rub regardless of camber. 225/40 will be the max tire size you'd want to run.

Alright I can deal with 8.5 and a flush it and a tiny bit of camber, and thats at +35 right? When on air does it receive any natural camber for airing out like some cars do? Also what is the wheel weight of your drag set up.

The 8.5 +35 will have slight poke. On air when lowering yes will have more -° camber the lower you go. The camber is not enough to clear the tires on those wheels once you get to the -2" to -2.5" area so a little more -° camber is needed to really tuck a lot or slam it. Fender liners will need to go as well to not hit those.

My drag tire/wheel weights are around 40 lbs front and 20 lbs rear.

Fender liner already pulled. Would like to make a new one out of some sheet metal cover a little as it flings dirt into the engine bay, and this would be mainly the fronts that need the camber help the rears can be less aggressive camber?

Both will need some camber to clear.
