^Nice! How much do you rub with those tires in the back? I have 245's and still rub like a mofo on a similar setup...

I rubbed a little on my previous rims and the ET was 40. These are 33 and I rub still even after raising the rear about .25". I cut the lip off the fender a couple years ago when I was running the other rims. This week I rerolled it and pulled it but I am still rubbing somewhere. I worked some more on the fender the other night and got it to stop rubbing as bad, however no I think I am rubbing on the bolt (previously shaved down a bit) that is on the inside of the fender that has a bracket for the rear bumper. I am going to cut that completely off next time I am under there and see if that helps. The bolt is doing nothing anyway.

Wow, that's some impressive stuff you did! I'm hesitant on cutting the lip because I'm afraid of the uneven edge that is usually left, but it would probably help

it's not that big of a deal really. I think most people have a shock of cutting into their car, if you can get over that, you are fine. Just mark off where you want to cut and heat the paint while you are cutting, you won't chip the paint. They only thing you have to worry about it cutting to close. There is the inner and outter fender and if you cut too much of the lip off they seperate a little. Again, not a huge deal if you seal it back up to prevent water from getting in there and rusting.

But if you cut it right, you can still roll it and the outter lip will still roll over on the inner lip.

Make sense?

Those wheels do go great with your car but some new 18's would be fun too

im on lowering springs. i have 18 inch rims as well. I have H&R sport springs, has a mild drop (dont remmmeber exact measurments) but i can fit about a finger and a half all around between the wheel and fender. If you want something lower, go with H&R Race springs.
