Will TRD springs RUB on my "17" 86

Hello I have a 2017 toyota 86 and bought trd springs. I asked my friend who has a 2014 scion frs that if he knew anybody. He asked around and people said don't do it because it will 'rub' im guess that means against the tire. He was saying just do coilover but I already bought these springs and want to use them since I had trd springs on my 2014 scion tc. If I do go ahead with installing the trd springs will I need to change the struts and coilovers to? I would think not since im not slamming. Would changing the tire size have to be done as well. I would hope not. Thanks for the feedback,

TRD springs are designed to work with stock wheels, tires and struts.I have them on my '16 with no issues and they aren't low enough to rub.From what it looks like no significant changes to the suspension setup geometry from 2013-2017 and I believe the part number is the same for TRD spring from 2013-2017. Check with the dealer to confirm.

2017 Part number .

Technically speaking the springs and struts are the coilovers. As said the TRD springs are designed for the stock set up but hey will still work with many other wheel and tire sizes. If what you are running for wheel size now are not causing issues then there is no reason why the TRD springs are likely to cause any. All will be fine.

I have a 2017 86 as well. I have the stock wheels with the TRD springs with no problems. The only drawback is, you will need to take some steep driveways at an angle so you don't scrape the bottom of the front end.

Yep. And too fast over railway tracks will make you familiar with the bump stops in a real hurry.

I have TRD springs on my '13, no problems. It's impossible to rub, the bump stop things prevent the springs from compressing enough. I live in SoFlo and our roads are very similar to any northern state that gets snowed and salted. Our tax money goes to more important things, like painting buildings.

How much stiffer than stock are these springs? Because even mild ones like eibach pro kit will kill stock struts..

You're confusing drop with spring rate. Aftermarket springs kill OEM struts because they lower too far and the strut has no travel left, so it bottoms out. But even then it depends on usage. I've been on RCE yellows and OEM struts for 50K miles with no issues. Others have needed new struts within 5K. People have run Eibach sportlines or RS-R superdowns for years with no problems.

I got the TRD springs because my dealer said it's a Toyota part and was covered by the warranty so if anything goes wrong with the struts later, it's on them.

I am on the stock struts with the Superdowns for 3 years and 100k miles and still no issues. Most of that is good condition highway travel though.
