Thank you.

I'm running 20" x 8.5" MRR GT1s all the way around; not staggered like they normally come (9.5" in the rears) for sake of being able to rotate tires. Tires are 245/35 Yokohama Avid W4S.

Not sure about offsets, but I have a 1/8" spacer in the front so the wheels clear the calipers. My fenders are also rolled and I have Megan Racing coilovers. I only rub around full lock, and then it's only on the plastic fender lining. Just gets annoying at times and for some reason it's doing it now more than it did last year.

Thanks!

I'm curious as to what your offsets are and how much you rub at that height. It looks like you wouldn't be able to turn more than a few degrees with it set that low haha

Hey Mugen_1, how are the Megans working out for you? I think I gave some feedback when you were looking into lowering options. I have about 25k miles on my Megans and still love them.

Megans are working out well. Aside from them being really loud when it's cold outside, I haven't had a problem with them yet. Ride is firm but far from harsh. I'm running 13 on front and 22 in back right now.

Haven't started messing with lowering it any more though...maybe once it warms up and I'm out of school I can see how much lower I can go. Right now they're at the highest setting they can be on.

i believe the offsets are at a +50 and running on 225/55/17 tires all the way around. i dont rub at all. still have a about 3 1/4 inches left to lower it some more.

I think they have too many spokes to be 430's, no?
