Anybody running 9.75" +20's on a GR I have a question. My front fender liner is rubbing the tires like crazy did you guys cut or remove this at all? I need to get an alignment still but I don't think that'll help much. Thanks in advance for the info.

Circle cut the top. Those are the beautiful struggles of the lowlife. Check where it's rubbing and cut it out.

It rubs (the lining) on my right fender on my GD. I cut it sort of, but I just let the tire rub and eat it up. I need smaller tires, I got 225/45 on 18x8.75 +35 xxr 527.. Other then that I rub over bumps and cornering

I've got my coils as stiff as possible in the back. I still rub a bit though. I'm only running a 17x9 +30 though.

I don't really rub in the rear that I can notice. On bc coils with pretty hard dampening. But the front rubs a lot. I'm gonna cut out some of the liner tomorrow.

Go with a wider rim to not rub? Am I reading that correctly?

Edit: I finally lowered my front end another inch. Man it looks so much better to have zero gap. I don't know why it took so long.

That's my front and rear right now.

The front doesn't rub at all, it's cambered and lowered to the maximum.

The rear rubs on bumps when I'm alone, but with multiple people it rubs even when I'm cruising at 25.

I'm setup about the same as you and have the same rubbing issues. It's not bad at all really.

If I worked my fenders I'd be fine.

My fenders aren't touched. Healthy camber and a decent wheel/tire size is an easy fit.

I got camber plates for the front only. Should I get some for the rear? I only got camber bolts for the rear.

I guess you guys are different than the GR and my rear is more of a wider body so the rear is perfect with a flat roll. The front I did a slight roll but I think I need to camber more with the bolts.

Yes, it makes life a lot easier. I can only get so much camber from the bolts before I start to rub the strut. With plates I can get another 2 degrees.

It's an obvious difference. The GR accepts MUCH wider wheels than any previous model.

That, and 04-07 STI rear fenders SUCK for rolling. I'm not looking forward to grinding mine.
