I'm trying to figure out a way to capture the lift with my camera set up. I was fortunate that a friend captured the above picture at our last event. He actually got a couple more from that day as well.

I think I'm gonna order 15x10 wheels for the front and run some 245's or 275's and 15x8's in the back with 225's or 245's and poke them right out of the fenders like the civics do

I'll just cut the fenders, if I cannot get enough to stop rubbing I suppose I could put spacers between camber plate/rear shock mount and the body and get a little more there, the car is already so low on 15" tires I drag all over
