Just wondering who on here have problem with rubbing after lowering.

Basically I wanna feel that I'm not alone on being crazy (and not being able to take more than 2 people) for having lowered car. [>_<]

go with smaller tires, then you won't rub at all ;)

i'm running HnR rac with stock struts and 225/40/18s on wheels with et38. i've had 4 people total in the car and no rubbing at all. if you're tubbed, you should run 215s at least

homemade fender rolling with a pipe will do the trick

smaller tires will help, but depends on how low you go and what offset you have on the wheels. I was slammed on my b5 and never rubbed.

215/40
wont even be close to rubbing even with 80mm lower.
with an offset of - 35.
so you must be riding too big [cool]

I am with you on that I am fine normal driving as long as it doesn't include really hard turns.
