I'm thinking either alignment with more camber or you'll have to roll your fenders. Not sure of any other possible solutions, sorry
Are you sure that what you heard was a rubbing sound or that you were really rubbing a fender and not a strut? Do you see any markings on a tire?well, this was a bit surprising. i am running the MPSS in 255/40/18 on the stock BBS wheels. its mildly lowered on the RCE yellows. yesterday while pushing the car in turns, i was very suprised to hear rubbing from the tires when the suspension was under full compression. i was under the impression that the tiny extra width would not be a problem with my car. any fast solutions? id rather not roll/pull flenders
This. Check you liners for rubbing. You did replace the bump stops when you swapped springs right?Other than the yellows, is your suspension stock? What about alignment?
Even if your convinced its your fenders not inner fender liner/strut rub, just take a look in there for rub marks. It's unlikely that you are rubbing your fenders just from some wide tires on stock wheels... These cars have pretty big fenders. Either way, there should be rub marks on something.
No problem! Shoot me a PM sometime later this week. I work in San Jose too.Wwrx, I'd love to get a ride in your car, as I'm very interested in the billys/gtworx strut! I'm
In San Jose.
They aren't the same height. See for yourself. The sidewall height difference on a 255/40/18 compared to a 245/40/18 is 4.1% taller. The overall height of the tire is also taller causing it to rub. If you go to a 265/35/18 the smaller sidewalls allow for the same tire height as oem. Your speedo should also be reading a little bit slower also as it is revolving slower. At the end of the day it's not a big deal. Just do a slight roll. Unless.... you are rubbing the inside of the tire with suspension components. Then your only solution is new tires or spacers.Stock is 245/40/18....
