Depends what you mean by "high". My driveway at the house has a slope and I get in with no issues. But some areas can definitely be tricky and there are gas stations that i didn't even attempt to go into. All of my previous cars have been like this so you kind of learn to drive around some of the challenging spots. The "angle" approach with wheels turned into places has to become a normal thing for anyone with a lip this low. But day-to-day, it hasn't been an issue so far.

Oh, and the quality of the Novel parts is unbelievable by the way. i've had a lot of carbon on various cars over the years, and this is by far the best I've ever installed.

Here in California we have high driveways. All my previous cars were also low with lip on them so I know your pain. I can’t just go into any gas stations. I have to choose the ones I know my car can make it without damaging my lip.

your GS F looks sick! I bought wheels with similar spec as your HRE. Do you notice any rubbing especially in rear?

Thanks. For 11Ē rear wheel with 38 offset, I had to roll/shave the fender lips. Itís close but absolutely zero rubbing now. We initially tried et33 from HRE and there was no way to make that work without running a lot of camber to try to tuck the wheel, even with the shaved fender lips.

This is with 295/30 tire

good luck
