The space between the tire and the lip come in contact with the guard when i pull out of my driveway. (there's a dip when my driveway ends and the road starts) Here's a pic for better reference.





Quick idea of the dip. The car does a 3 wheeler when going onto the road so one wheels lip hits the guard.



This bit of the lip hits.

Looking nice!

Do you have the arches rolled or pulled at all to help the wheels/tires clear??

Are you using lower rear adjustable control arms/ front camber plates?... or is that camber from stock adjustment?

Just picked up some 95s... coilovers come tomorrow.

Rear arches have been shaved and pulled so there's heaps of Clearance on the rear wheels! Just the lip sits outside the guard and every time I do a 3 wheeler one of the lips hits the arch!!

Negative on camber arms, it's just the camber I got from the drop!! And congrats.

ouch that doesnt look fun!

Well u can either raise ur coilovers, pull the arch some more, more negative camber with adjustable control arms .... or do the unthinkable and get different wheels!!!

Ignore the last option!!

How much have the arches been flared out?
Is that hitting just you in the car?

I have a coupe so have a little more room but my wheels are et20 so pretty much the same as you.
Fitting 235/35 and 215/35 falkens

Get yourself some bump stops to keep your wheel from hitting the fender. There is a DIY floating around here where they used rubber corks as bump stops.

I love the orange with the blue as well, i'd keep the amber corners and side markers but get some new tail lights. Maybe Red/Clear/Red?

Love the wheels in white
