They're 18x9.5 +38 with 245/40/18 and 12mm spacers (I have ARP studs and my lugs won't tighten without the spacers).
barnburner was 18x9.5 +38 (WITH spacers) with a 265/35 MPSS and didn't rub. pretty sure he had stiffer rates than you. make sure all 4 corners are rolled flat!

They're rolled and we pulled the fronts and rears a decent amount. I think the 40 sidewall is most of the issue (half inch taller than a 35). I'm going to pop the front wheels off and beat the hell out of the inner tubs. I think it's rubbing more on the inside than the outside. Also going to turn up the front damping.

Here's a non cell phone picture...

The 40 series is your issue hands down. Swap to a 35 series and enjoy

Also I'm surprised you're not at full stiff for dampening already. That will help a lot

I don't get what's going on here. This is a simple setup to fit. The 40series is fine I run a 215/40/18 on a 18x9.5 +13 and I tuck to rim lip no issue. Also yes go full stiff that will help. Rolled pulled fenders, more camber and rip out the fender lines. Also you can tub with a hammer and torch I did this too but you don't look low enough to be rubbing in there yet. Just add some camber and call it a day. Easy fix

You're running a 215/40. I'm running a 245/40 and likely a bit less camber (my coils are maxed but I don't have front camber bolts) so there's a lot more tire to hit things...

I pulled the front wheel off. It's obviously rubbing bad here as the metal is freshly polished. The fender itself looks fine.



I hammered there and behind the fender liner there (there were rub marks too) as much as I could, but I'm probably going to go back and hit it again when I have access to a heat source.



I was also 9 clicks from full stiff. I put it 3 from full stiff for now, we'll see how that does.

Just go full stiff..and even with your tire size your fine. I could still tuck hard. And you don't need front camber bolts you have stock ones and should have front camber bolts. Im running -5.5 front camber and -6.8 rear

Here's a quick cellphone shot. Still needing a slight adjustment, but you get the idea.

I'm ready for a new set of wheels, and will be selling these soon. Someone send me a PM if interested, Work Meister S1 3P BBF 4.5" rear lips, clears BBK 5x114.3. PERFECT fitment. Took home Best Stance from Stance Nation at Blox Evolution a couple weeks ago with these wheels.

Have the original boxes and all packaging to ship.

Hammering and stiffening the coils helped a ton. The only time I rubbed yesterday was on the bottom of the fender if I'm turning on an incline... which isn't that much of a bother.

I do need to pull a little camber out of the rear, though... what did you guys do about trimming the lip on the inner part of the rear bumper? The plastic should be easy enough to cut, but there's a metal bracket behind that. Did you just take it out?

nah not really. i usually get "oh what happened there?" im buying a new bumper soon because this one has been through hell and will just be the winter beater one. my splitter got trashed when i ripped my lip off and it came back and rubbed on the tire on the highway. skirts, you can thank new york roads for that one haha. but he what can you do when you are hammered on 17s and still daily drive it normal. ****s bound to get ****ed. car wont stay like this too much longer hopefully. its been on the ground for awhile now. plan on a rwd swap and drifting it next year.
