Looking well on the new suspension & tyres there ;-)

I wonder if the castor correction would fix the bowing of the springs as a side bonus?

Yes it will, but not much.. But i really feel the correction is needed, it doesnt track very well now.

The ET15 7x15 wheels is close to a perfect fit, as the tire wear pattern are pretty much bang in line vertically with the top fender edge on the side thats "worst". A panhard correction on both axles would make it perfekt.. Not sure if i bother to do something with it tho..

Since the jimny is so narrow and tall looking, with its high front window, i want it to stand as wide as possible.. ET-0 wouldnt do the trick for me, but ET-10 would be absolutly perfect on 235's..
Probably need to go max et 0 if you want to avoid cutting away some plastic.

Daihatsu Sportrak wheels are ET-12. Keithy had a pic of some he was selling a couple days ago with Hankook RT03's in 235/75/15 on them. I just put a set on with 235/75/15 Maxxis Bighorns on those same rims (see below)

What does "ET" mean? Sorry I'm still learning the basics!
