is yours eibach250 or 350? eibach 250 and tein-s doesn't have much difference, only .2 inch difference..

hmm I have no idea too why I rub..but I'm positive that's the place the tire rubs the plastic part..

Just use the heat gun and push the inner wheel well in. I have +35 offset and I have no issue with rubbing.

and you are dropped with H&R, aren't you? If you have no issues with rubbing with H&R spring, I bet no issues too with Eibach250. Provided the plastic part is pushed in. Right? I have looked at your car at EOS and the drop was awesome.

Didn't we already discuss this in PM's back and forth? You already know you are going to rub with those size wheels. Just accept it and understand that when you turn hard you are going to rub. You are not hurting anything. Lower your car, see where it rubs, heat gun in that part if it bothers you that much, and if it still bothers you after that, don't turn so sharp.

The car comes from the factory pretty dang close already. Once you start putting 19's and wider/ aggressive offsets you are going to rub. Get used to it.

Same with your lip. You are going to scrape it, get used to it.

cheers...

damn we have the same offset.. but you have wider tires too.. hell.. I was thinking about getting 225/30/20 in front to cut back from the rubbing.. but I guess not.. hummm I have little rubbing only when I turn... just enough to annoy me.. blah.. but it get pretty loud when you come to a stop and turn..

maybe i need to heat gun more......

having a clean looking car is always gonna cost you in same way, this car has such great turn radius you shouldn't need to crank it all the way to make a u-turn anyways
