19"x8.5"(et-35") can't clear tein ssp coilover

is any one using tein ssp coilover with 19"x8.5" et-35 for front?i finally found that the 8.5" et-35 can't clear the coilover,it does scratch the spring a little bit.also, i want to hear about the opinion from u guys.

I have the same set up ... You'll need a 5mm or 10mm spacer in front (it was noted on the Tein site)
Coilovers are great on the track but they suck on Oahu roads ... We have pot holes that are 4inch deep
I have a H&R hubcentric 10mm spacer for sell ... Let me know and good luck

i think this is funny.the story is:now i have the iforged in m3 offset.but b4 i'm using the m6rep. with 5mm spacer at front,when i changed to iforged.front r rub the inliner sometime,so i took off an sold it.but today,i got flat tire. when i switch to one of my m6 rep. on,then i know the wheels rub the spring of coilover.and i called the guy that i sold the spacer.tell him can i buy them back. and i think i'm lucky,the guy accept to sell them back to me.also i wan to know is,will 8.5" et-35 can fit on the rear without spacer?

No problem with the rear. Many coilovers have clearance issues up front. I use hubcentric spacers up front... I have my front end jacked up high so wheel clearance isn't an issue... but tire clearance is. I have to have 18x9 ET25 offset up front to mount 265/35/18 tires and prevent it from rubbing the coils... and lots of negative camber to prevent it from rubbing the fender.

I really like the TEIN SSP coilovers... but the loss of clearance up front is really unfortunate.
