roll your fenders, and be sure to use a heat gun if you don't want your paint to chip off. then pull them out a bit at the top od the arch to get them where you want them. A bit od camber may help too. good luck!

Roll the fenders, pull the fenders, remove fender liner, add camber and smoke cigarettes

Check out the hellaflush threads, you can get some good insight there

Remove or trim fender liner, spend profit on cigarettes

all those cars you are looking at rub.

period.

they all do. they can say they don't, but they do.

if you want to go low, get used to rubbing. if you dont want to worry about it, dont worry about getting any lower.

Actually 225 is within his wheel width allowance. The wheel is a 8.75 and that tire fits up till 9" wide.

agreed. theres no reason to waste perfectly good tires, so props for using them up first. i hate being wasteful! the difference between 255/35/18 an 255/40/17 is a couple hundred dollars, hence why i run 17" wheels (and lighter weight too).

Just for reference i am lowered on yellows, running 17x8.5 with 255s with roll/pull in the rear and absolutely nothing done to the fronts and i NEVER rub! and it even looks "aggressive", if your into that . So it can easily be done, you just have to have proper fitment

Yet another bull**** post.

You should shut your mouth and post in threads that contain wankers that need to eat it.

Oops that's my inner voice detecting horse ****.

OP, you could pull the inner liners, do a little "massaging" then go to town with some good rubber coating..
