I need some opinions on this small problem: I had my 97 E420 lowered with Eibach Pro-Kit springs, an approx 1.3 in. drop in the front, 1.4 in the rear. The car also has 17x9(rear) and 17x8(front) AMG Monoblock 3-piece wheels with BFG G-Force KDW tires, 245/45/17 rear, 235/45/17 front. The problem is a persistent fenderwell rubbing of the front tires with the fenderwell edge. I had the fenderwell edges rolled professionally, they look great, but rubbing still persists, a little better, though. THIS is the real issue: The AMG wheels came from my SL500, and have a 35mm offset. They look great, because of the wider track and have a custom, aggressive look, but I know this is why I am having rubbing problems. Next step: stiffer front shocks, KYB-A for the fronts to control wheel movement a little better, and if that does not solve the rubbing problem, narrower 215/45/17 front tires, and then step C: spring perch pads to raise the front up 0.3 inches. Does that sound like a logical order of progression to you guys??
