Peter, what size are your wheels/tires? I used to run 245's up front and I would rub like mad up in the well.. The last few months I threw on some 215's, lowered the car another inch, and I cant force the thing to rub now if I wanted. I know alot of people dont like the stretched tire look but it did the job for me.

Yo what's up mr. D...! We gotta go on a photoshoot again =)
anyways...
So right now, I'm running 225/40/18 and it always rubs in the wheel well when exiting a driveway towards the right. I'm getting a new cut on my tires lol.
Anyways, what size are you running on your 215's?
I don't mind the stretch at all actually, I ran 235's on a 9.5 before so I'm ok with that.
I'm not scarping my dlfenders though, my fenders are rolled, the only thing that keeps scrapping is this sharp metal thing that is all the way inside the wheel well

Ive still got a few things Im working on before summer but when Im done we'll have shoots up the @ss!

I have 215/35 on an 8.5" wheel. I was rubbing in the same area with my 245's, the top of the wheel well not the fender edges. Is it only when exiting a driveway or does it happen when you hit a small bump while driving straight too? I beat the hell out of the top of the wheel well with a sludge hammer a while back when I was still rockin the meaty fronts too.

I scrape, barely. And I'm pretty lowered. I think it's because I'm used to driving my celica...
