Cupcake, the fenders are rolled and camber added to not rub. Plus there's plenty of space for travel before any hypothetical contact. I highly doubt it's "stiff as a stone"
My 450lb springs on my Feal 441 coilovers are actually quite comfortable. And anyone with the setup will agree with that.
Just because its not 225/45/17 RSRs, doesn't make it bad. Nor is everyone driving on the dirt roads that you CLAIM to drive on. Get yer head outta yer bunghole.
