I'm curious. Do you get mad if the wheels arent aligned perfectly with each other? That would drive me bananas if they weren't all equal. lol

Hahaha yeah.. Its more aggressive in the front because I put 10mm spacers in the front.. Was rocking 15mm but they were too wide and my fenders were buckling constantly. Lol.

Only reason I went with spacers because my wheels would hit the strut before I can get it to mount onto the hub. Hahaha. Low life problems.. SMH.

To the 04-07 WRX STi's, when you guys are running this low, don't you have rubbing issues on the front inside fender well?

Rolling and pulling can help alleviate outside rubbing, but with the wide rims/tire combo, do you guys have inside fener rubbing issues on dips and tight turns?

i have stop 05 STi BBS rims and with -2 front camber but im rubbing from time to time on the inside fenderwell on dips and tight turns. My shock settings are 32 way adjustable and fronts are about 12 from soft.

Let me know what you guys are adjusting to alleviate.

Thanks! once i get some nice rims ill post up pics, thanks!

How low are you? I think some spacers would alleviate your issue, but I can't think of a reason why a 17x7.5 would rub anywhere. If I had tires on my 04 BBS, I would try to check fitment for you.

Do you have the fender liners still?

Sorry I don't want to make this a techincal question, so I will post in suspension forum but mine are 17x8 stock BBS with 225/45/17 stock oem size.
im pretty low with zero tire clearance, but im not as low as most of everyone posting pics of their ride here. and I still have my fender liners but as I said its alreayd eating through then and hitting the inner fender just about on tight turns and dips in the road.

I had my stocks on for a few weeks in between wheel setups and had the same problem. I raised it up a little, but you should probably get spacers if you're going to stay with those wheels. it'll look better and help with the rubbing

Just a quick question, how much clearance do you need between the bottom of the coilover and the cv boot to keep from ripping it open?

I'd put them so it's just barely touching.

Are the OEM roof rack bars removable? I'd be curious to see what it looks like without it.
