If I set up the frs with springs and camber kit etc will this have to be done again when I replace my alloys with aftermarket ones with a different width and offset ? Thanks for the help

Haha fair enough. Logically I'd think it makes a difference due to tire width and positioning altering ??

Camber castor and toe will be exactly the same no matter what wheels you put there.

The problem is the wider front track means the turning circle of the front wheels change slightly.
Inside wheel turns a tighter circle than the outside wheel.
They should each follow concentric circles which is a wheels track apart.
So if you increase or decrease the wheel track....you change these turning circles

How much of a difference that would make to the toe settings I wouldnt know.

Depends.... if they use off the shelf setting for all civics, then nothings gonna change.. so no point.
If they tune all cars as necessary then yes.
Best thing to do is throw the question at them and see if they use the same settings for all... no matter the track (& if they think it really matters if the track is 30mm wider)
