    I think I'm going to take a gamble here and go to 265 Squared Set-Up for next year.

    I'll be installing some TCK DA Suspension along with Camber Plates, and in order to get more grip up front I think this is the only option.

    I was thinking of going 18x9.5 ET 35 with some APEX EC-7 wheels. I'll be running 12mm spacers in the rear to clear.

    Any options or personal experience? I'll most likely be mounting RS3s unless the Start Spec ZIIs get rave reviews.

    By "options" I think you mean "opinions." I'm sure there will be plenty of those! You should benefit from reduced understeer with the square setup.

    Whoops, yes I meant opinions.

    That's my main goal (no understeer). I just didn't know if anyone has done it and knows an exact number for alignment

    I bit of toe-out will help with, if I recall, turn-in/steering response. Can't tell you a number.

    Planning on running 0 Toe (I'm doing 0 toe now and like how it handles). and keeping around 1/16th to 1/8th toe in rear.

    I don't know if I want to run toe out yet, I like my tires not getting chewed up :)

    I don't know what stock settings for your car are, but typically some toe-in is normal, so zero toe might be toed-out from normal specs. It wouldn't be surprising that you'd notice the difference.
