use one of these;

1-Sell those tires and get smaller.
2-camber plates (set it -1 or -2) only for the summer time
3- stiffen the coilover setting to track, or get bump stopper

it looks too good to quit.

They Look real good bro, I would see if you could find a less aggressive offset. And/or pick up new coilovers.
What brand did u just put on? And when I first put on my wheels with my oem suspension its rubbed like a mooooffooooo especially in first when you give it that nice jolt on the pedal kashhhhh kashhhhh loll rubbed like a mofo. and your tires are most likely shreadding. mine had the same thing. little shreaded slits in the tires.

On an offset 20, mounting 225/35/19 (9") will only avoid rubbing. Without a stiffer coils, in a bump you might hit your rear end quarter fender with the wheel lip. You need a progressive high rate coil that won't compressed at all. Try Megan racing ones (cheap) Or TC kline's if u have the $$$. When you're poked, your wheel is not meant to travel towards the fender (Inner/sect). Most sedans on the site look good on ET 20, but they don't perform well. They still rubb on bumps or when there are passengers in it. I know it is expensive as hell, but that's the cost of stancing. New tires and shaving will go around $400 + $120 for two coils, unless you get a hook up with shop. I love the way it looks, but you can acomplish it one step at a time. I hope I'm wrong and somebody comes with more help and new ideas.


btw this is equivalent to ET25 on 225 tires: see the fender or the tires. No rubbing and you saw me driving it to the marina. Performance > look.

i'm pretty sure you migh be looking for a +600 Lbs/rate spring. i don't know about ZHP rates but search on it. I believe MOSS (luis Duran) is running 600 Lbs coil At rear with bump stoppers.
