      I was referring to the above post/picture with my comments about tires rubbing on fenders, not you being on air Your wheels actually fit your car, unlike above

      I do like them a lot, I almost picked up a matte black set not too long ago... and yes, color is definitely personal preference

      my wheels dont fit either

      this was a few months ago after a canyon drive, when i still had the eagle f1's and -2.6 rear camber. now i can run the same roads with no issues.

      dont worry, the burn coloring comes off when you wash it

      Thanks dude, at least the shades of green aren't identical, mine I think are a bit brighter.

      I just picked up the wagon alittle over 2 weeks ago and haven't driven it out that way yet, but you might have seen my Mk4 around-



      And I have cut some stickers that match the wheels to put on my hatch, I'm working on some other ideas to tie the green into the rest of the car, dont want to go overboard though, because the green isnt staying for too long, lol

      Holy crap what size are the lips on the rears? Thinking about going a little wider on mine.

      what size tire are you using? raise the back, dial in some negative camber and maybe get a tire with a smaller sidewall. Even my setup rubbed like that (and cracked/burned the paint on my fenders) until I swapped out the goodyears for slightly skinnier nankangs and went from -2.6 to -3.0 rear camber
      thanks for the help! i raised the rears up 5 threads and I'm running 235/35 hankook v12 evo's. I'm currently at -2.5 rear camber and only rub on some dips/bumps if i go over them too fast. I'm planning on cutting the fender liner tomorrow to see if that helps.

      would you recommend getting 225's or would a different brand/model tire be better? and how much extra wear would my tires have at -3.0 rear camber compared to the factory rec -1.5?
      and when you guys say my wheels dont fit.. do you mean because its 9.5? or et 45 (or maybe the tires?) I'd like to keep these wheels, but not if its going to be this much trouble just to run them

      and nikhsub1.. this is my first time ever purchasing wheels/tires + on a lowered car. obviously i didn't want this to happen, that's why i came here as soon as it happened. I had just came from VMR and they told me i could drive home at that height. (I'm assuming because it was about closing time and they wanted to go home.. I wish i had told them to take the wheels off. hindsight is 20/20) I dont have much time to work on my car as i have to work 50 hours a week. I'm on here to learn.. so thanks to those who gave me advice.

      I'd think you need a smaller tire. Maybe 215s. Then see if it still needs more negative camber.

      I don't think he needs more camber as much as just smaller tires... 225's should be fine... that is what I run but my wheels are 18x8.5 and ET45. 9.5's are wide but many have done it before... My bet is smaller tire and good to go.

      I'd agree. I ran 18x9 et45 with 225 and was fine. Cleared the fronts too, with the fenders rolled. That's was with the ride height probably at 23.75 fender to ground and 24 in the rear, if I'm remembering correctly. And I relieve my rear camber was -2.3. I had no rubbing.

      The 9.5s are obviously going to stick out more, but maybe the extra width will stretch the 225s enough to clear. I think it will be close though. Maybe go with 225s in a brand know to run narrow?

      I am running a 9.5" et44 on the rear of mine. Tires are 215's but I was running pretty low. No issues with rubbing. I don't think I could run a 225, however.

      Thanks. I saw you roll by at the show, your wagon looked awesome too.

      Pulling the wheels back off to re-do them. I hate poke and having to worry about the rear quarter panels. Also going to get smaller barrels and bigger lips for the front so I can ditch the adapter.

      Thanks. From the first picture of them mounted, I pulled the helpers in front, notched the frame, added some camber (for tuck), and dropped the rear. As far as pics, I have a few more on my camera from sowo. I'd love a roller of it thou.

      Thanks. Yeah I pulled the springs, jacked the wheel up in the wheel and adjusted the camber till they just cleared. I would hate myself if I destroyed a rear quarter.

      The 9.5s are obviously going to stick out more, but maybe the extra width will stretch the 225s enough to clear. I think it will be close though. Maybe go with 225s in a brand know to run narrow?
      18x9's seem to fit these cars really well (front and rear with the right offsets) and still allow you to run a 225 width tire.

      For 9.5s, a 215 tire is just too much stretch for me. I'd stick to a 225/35, raise the rear coils (if necessary) and dial in a little more camber. The change from -2.6 to -3.0 made such a big difference in my setup...
