View Full Version : Rub a dub dub....

So I have my coilovers set to 25 inches ground to fender on 225/45/17 Fuzion ZRis and under hard cornering I'm rubbing on something. I think it might be the fender liner on the inside. I checked the outside of my tires and there isn't any scarring or marks. Is there a solution to this? So I just let the tires wear through the liner?

jus roll your fender with a bat as evenly as posible with a rag, i did this and my scrapes went away i have 235's . jus make sure its a wood batt don't expect it to be in good condition after you use it , so don't borrow a neighboors lol

i did, How much did you roll? Do you remember how your coilovers were set? Like how many threads up you set the perches. I don't think i'm rubbing the fender though.

i am slightly stretched on a 8in wide rim. i'm still trying to find where i'm rubbing. i don't think its the fender. i thinks its the liner.

225/45 is not streched.

Whats the offset? I was 23.9 or so with 225/45/17 on 8.5's and never rubbed, Id link it to your offset.

i do that too, it must be the inside the wheelwell liner. because there seems to be no damage to the upper fender lip or liner. i dont car because it very rarley happens. i hear a little zippppp sound

The fuzion zri's run thin. Its only slightly stretched. I had 235 on dunlops and they were very wide. I trimmed the liner just around where the torx screw is and took out the screw. i also rolled a little more and trimmed the tab where the screw went. Left side is fine now, its just the rise side i'm still hitting liner. Oh well, its like 3 degrees out now so I will wait.
