Lowered Toyota gt86 trd, need help

Hello, all

I recently put bc extreme low coilovers and 18x9.5 gram lights 57dr and running 225/40/18 in the front and 235/40 in the rear currently. The fronts have been rubbing, I have splash guards still in. What would be my best bet to do. Should I raise it a little? Roll my fenders or just need to remove splash guards? Any recommendations are highly appreciated.

Jack the car up, remove the wheels, and look at the wells.


That will tell you why the car is rubbing

Burn car, buy a Civic.
Once tires rub it's all over.

I would suggest raising it up a quarter inch at a time until it stops rubbing. If you still rub and want to stay super low then you will benefit from fender rolling as your wheels are pretty wide for a stock fender. I have 17x9 et38 wheels with 245-40 all around and have no rubbing with a two finger gap all around. Still plenty low and still functional.

You need to figure out where it's rubbing before doing anything...

Sounds like you need some front camber. What's it set to now?
FWIW I'm running 245/40-17 on 17x9 +35 with 3 degrees front camber and it didn't rub when lowered 1.5"
