Default BC vs RSR

So i'm debating on whether i should wait for the AWD BC coilovers, or go with the RSR Coils. The BC's are a little cheaper and i've always had BC's on all of my cars, but i was wondering what people on here prefer. the only thing im worried about with the RSR coils is the softer spring rates, i have 19x10 +38 wheels and don't want to run into rubbing issues if i opt for the softer spring rates. Any opinions welcomed, thanks!

Personally, RSR trumps BC in quality any day. But you have a valid reason to choose the stiffer spring rates. what are the differences in rates?

RSR offers front 10k/rear 8k and i see most people get 12k/10k with BC's and say its great.

IMHO opinion, 2kg isn't going to make a big difference in wheel travel in terms of wheel clearance going up driveways and such. I would go with RSR in that case.
