ok i know this has been covered 10000s times but here is one more... i have 19x9.5 with 265/30/19 BFG KDWs... and i am lowered on Tein S techs... the rim shop test fitted the wheels and they rubbed (no surprise there) they rolled the fenders a little bit then gave up... they told me either i should go with the stock springs or get lowering springs that are less aggressive... anyone know what i should do?
TIA


yea i know that isnt the greatest picture... my camera battery died..

If you want that aggressive style. Then you would need to massage, pull and roll.

Well at least thats what others on here have said.

As far as other springs go, Prokits are less agressive but still give a nice look. They might work with the wheels.

Damn, did they mess up your quarter panel when trying to roll it? In the picture it's at about 10:30 if your wheel is a clock.

I was thinking the same thing. Before I posted the first time.

Same question about them messing up your rear quarter

Go with different tires. I'm dropped on prokits with a 19x9.5 +55, same tires, and I rub only with people in the car hitting dips quick. I just bought those tires on ebay dirt cheap to replace my worn out falkens, the bfgs were literally another 1/2 inch wider. The shoulder on them sticks out more too. If you want to stick with the bfgs, get a 255 instead. Even if you roll the fenders, you'll hit where the rear bumper bolts to the quarter panel.
