F@@k that's close what make are the coils, I had some with a sleave on the bottom so you could double adjust them, drop the bottom and take up the top to move them away from the rim, they were tuning arts, cheap coiles but did the job

What?! The tyre doesn't flex at the top?! It has no load on it there!

Considering the wheel and lower section of coilover move together, they could be *** paper clearance and never hit.

When you get a flat tyre, does the air only come out the bottom?

Most flex will be at the bottom, but look for images of cars heavily loaded on a front wheel. You will notice that none of the sidewall is square.

Nice one. Ive just had mine fitted but not sitting that low. Need to check ground clearance in my driveway and then maybe drop it a bi more. But i wouldnt get away with anything like that.
