cool! The tires I am going to use are Yokohama ES100s. are these comprable to the tires you used? I know there is a lot of variation from tire to tire, even if they are the "same" size.
Were you close to rubbing when you were stock or lowered? How far did you lower it? also, did you corner pretty hard to give it a good test?
The rims/tires are used (buying them from a local owner) so I don't have a choice in the size. Its a good deal so I dont wanna pass it up as it is a good way to have an auto-x set, so I can still race. But I dont wanna go for it if it wont work well. I imagine I will stay at stock height for now as I will do sways and strut bars before I lower, i think, as I want more than just springs (and that type of modification is beyond what I have money-wise for the car right now). Will sway bars decrease the potential to rub?
