Yes I realize it's still at stock height but it will be staying that way as I already scrape my lip on our crap roads and driveways here in Australia. Have already destroyed one lip and ripped a side skirt off.

What suspension do you have any are you experiencing any rubbing?

I am thinking of getting the same wheel and tire setup but my suspension is the GTWORX/Bilstein combo and I am worried about rubbing.

I only have Progress lowering springs. I've heard some rubbing in the front, but only when the shock fully compresses. It's not constant or anything. It happens when I go through a deep gutter turning to a side street, but from the looks of it, the noise comes from rubbing the splash guard, not the fender, as the tire is intact. No signs of metal contact.

If they are +45mm offset or higher, you shouldn't have any issues with rubbing.

Perhaps the fellow above could use a little negative camber dialed in up front if those OZ's are +45mm or higher.

They're actually 48mm, and the camber is dialed in. I think the reason I hear rubbing is because of tire height and them being 235/45. The rubbing is with the splash guard, not the fender.

Thanks I looked long and hard and did a ton of research on here. I think I went through almost all 40 pages of this thread....

Makes sense. They don't seem to look taller in the pictures, but that's certainly a tall tire by size.
