My Ride: '01 325Ci
[Quite=2001_328Ci]something has to be wrong. I ran staggered 19's on stock sport suspension with 235 in front and 265 in the rear and never had rubbing issues. Even now, dropped on pss9s, I don't have any rubbing. Something has to be wrong with the offset or camber. [/quote]

I have not had an alignment yet, so it could be the camber as well. But I am wondering if the stock shocks are at their limit. They do have 81K on them. The car never seemed to bounce much though before and rode very tight and still does, but I guess it just has too much up and down movement for the 19s.

That is what I have been wondering. I really don't have the funds to do coilovers right now... I may just have to replace the shocks for now. Unless I can find a reasonable kit somewhere and get it installed though my Indy shop as well.

I will have to check on that. Thanks man. I apprecaite it!

I was wondering if the aftermarket springs are tight enough to keep the front end from compressing so much even though they sit lower?
