What kind of drop do you have?</font>
don't know for sure, I'm dropped with konis/ground-controls. I have about a 1 finger front gap, 1.5 finger rear gap. Most of rubbing came from the rear, so I raised it up a little higher.

wow i though you would get alot of rubbing with that kind of setup. im guessing you are running 215/35? Cuz it seems like everyone i talk to tell me that 18x7.5 with 45 offset will rub alot with 225/40 or 225/35 tires.

I'm on 18"X7.5" 225/40/18 with a 48mm dropped 1.75 inches on neuspeed sport springs. Initially I rubbed in the rear when I accelerated and while i was cornering, so I had the fenders shaved a little and now I don't have any problems.
