Quick question:
Does anyone else have problems with their Rally Armor mudflaps rubbing against their tires? It's usually only when there is weight in the back of my car. I just had to haul 4 tires and whenever i took a corner or hit a bump the screw/washer would rub on the tire.

Had this problem before and actually had to pull over and take the mudflap completely off. I have a 2010 2.5i sedan and i'm wondering if the wheel well cover is making it so my mudflaps are too close to my tires and if so how people worked around it..

Never had issues with the mudflaps rubbing the tire, but it sounds more like you are Rubbing the ground and not your tires.

I have this issue, and I just let it go. But what I did was just take them off until I actually needed them for winter.

My rally armors kept hitting my exhaust. I got sick of the look and took them off.

Rears hit the ground when karting around some fatties. Or entering near vertical driveways.

That's what I thought too, but then I went out and checked the washer was worn down and the screw was in contact with the tire...and burning hot... I think its and issue with the spacer they provided. Seems too big and kind of unnecessary especially if its going to cause contact w/ the tire when weight is added. (its been the inside screw thats been the problem)

Nothing aggressive. Just 215's wrapped around 17" wrx wheels on stock suspension. May just scrap the spacers because they just angle the tops of the mudflaps towards the tire. Tried to snap a quick cell pic to show what i am talking about. (again, only is a problem when hauling weight in the rear. Completely fine just cruising around town)

215/45 is the recommended tire size... That is about an inch taller than stock. But, removing the spacer should fix it!

You shouldn't have a problem since stock OBS wheels are 205/50/17 (I had 235/45/17 stock WRX wheels, on the OBS, and no issues with clearing, or rubbing), and in the pic it looks like you have enough clearance.

It looks liek the inside of the flap it self needs to be secured. And if it isn't that, the metal bracket (assuming its RA UR), needs to be bend back towards the rear of the car. I would only assume this since you are clearing without weight, but once weight is in. The tire gets closer to the inside of the flap.

Went to get an alignment not a full alignment though... I told them just to zero the toe and leave everything else alone. Well now I have a ****load of rubbing and my axles hit the frame. Prior to the toe adjustment rubbing was minimal and there was zero frame/axle contact.

They must have messed with the camber, and I'm not surprised by the axles... Go stiffer or notch it, your pretty slammed

10k springs upfront and full stiff. Also camber is exactly the same before and after according to the print out. Camber plates still maxed out. The top bolt in strut still has the lines matched up I drew on with a Sharpie. Rage just simply setting toe to zero threw everything off. FUUUCK!

Edit trying to avoid notching...or let my axles do it for me, I cringe everytime I hear it banging.

22.35" fender to ground all around

Doesn't camber directly affect toe when either is adjusted

I believe camber will effect toe but toe won't effect camber.

Just messed with my toe, took some before and after fender to ground measurements. My ride height actually did change a bit but nothing drastic maybe 2 or 3/ 16ths of an inch.
