Hi IloveBOTTY, i wonder u guys used offset +32 with 265/30 for the rears,have u guys ever had rubbing especially near by the edge of side-bumper, mine had the same offset as yours, in fact i only used original hnr spring without cutting it, but it rub all the time, even i had rolled my fender too. i think it required slightly bumper modification such as grinding ..anyone of you had the same condition as i did, please share your story regarding this mess

it rubbed when i first dropped the car. it rubbed where the bumper meets the rear quarter panel. i just filed it down. most of it is plastic. you'll will know where it rubb, just run your fingers around there and you'll feel it where its sticking out. let me know if that helps.

Well i do have cut springs in the rear and mine grindes like a mofo and i even grinded everything possible even the metal and inner plastic i grinded everything around the bumper bolt. I also cut out piece of the plastic carpet under the wheel well.. I heard the shape of the tires make a difference.. what kind of tires do you use? i have Perrili p 70000 and those are a rounded off tire i heard u should use a square wall on the tire. I wanna go lower but i cant but i think i will i dont care for the rubbing noise

well did you remove the bolt that stick near by the edge of side-bumper when side bumper meet fender, it was like the surface pretty sharp, i just wondering if i remove that bolt, would my bumper be drop right away or stick into it, i wrapped with dunlop sp-9000. i just really concern if the tires would be wear off so quick, will it possible happen on my rear tires...?

that chipping looks awful!! what i think happend is whoever rolled your fender rolled it...

that chipping looks awful!! what i think happend is whoever rolled your fender rolled it to hard and cracked your paint because i really doubt that it should chip.. What springs you using again? if i were you i would use a 3 or 4 pad.. your car is a little lower then mine but i plan to lower my car that low soon.. I would not grind that bolt down!! around it should be ok but honelstly i have no idea what is rubbing on my car i cant really tell.. im going to grind some more down when i lower my car again i cant really tell by your pic of your tire where its rubbing maybe you can take another closer pic of it please.. i have like a ring around my whole tire on were it rubs.. i would guess ur offset is wrong or to stong but i definetly do not suggest spacers.. any advice for me hehe thanks

hey ilovebotty, what currently shocks are u apply on your vehicle....? mine still use oem shocks, i use H&R spring. probably dunlop is too thick ,perhaps falken is thinner n strecher, i'm sure my offset is correct, low-offset make your alloy deeper dish,as the result it may rub so all i need is slight grind inside the bumper. i want my car as low as in this image

Ok Handoko....I've been reading this over and over from countless people and a couple buddies, my new conclusion is that no matter how much you clear the rear fenders you will still rub. You want to know why? Well it is because they have cut their springs and/OR they dont have new STIFFER shocks. I dont have that problem-they do and I got a half inch width on all of them(but one...). SO no matter what you do Handoko you WILL rub. Esp if you go crazy like esputmono[:p]So to solve the prob get coilovers or new stiffer shocks/struts. I hope everything works out
