Question FK Silverline Plus X Coilovers and OEM Wheels

Anyone have experience with FK Silverline Plus X Coilovers and OEM wheels? I hear that they may rub but no confirmation that spacers are needed. I have the OEM 17" wheels on there for now until I order a set of new ones.

Will I be able to get away without running a spacer for now?

I got OEM 18s and I think it rubs while reversing at full turn. It starts to make this whistle noise. Supreme Power will hook you up with 5mm spacers so problem solved.

Don't let this little problem get you as the coils are quality. No plastic parts, etc. Damping can be close to stock or firmer if you wish.

Thanks for that reply bro. I'm actually getting them from ECS becuase they went the extra mile and really took care of me. So I didn't end up getting spacers. I'll give it a shot w/o spacers and see what happens. I should be getting the VMRs soon enough then I should definately be ok.
