No Stretch or Poke, but is this approaching flush?

19" x 9.5" et20 with 265/30/19 and Front is 19" x 8.5 et 25 with 235/35/19 (was going to be et20 but seemed too aggressive and I didn't want to crack the dumb plastic fenders in the front)

2 Fender rolls and a 4" strip of fender liner cut out and it still rubs like crazy in back.

Gonna grind out the places it rubs today and hopefully that'll do 'er.

Besk, throw 3 bumpstops in the rears that should solve your problem before you try any grinding on that brand new car.

does that really work??? i just bought some 10.5 +20 for my e92 as my rear set up. ive done fitment for many other cars but the e92 still baffles me. usually i would get a stiffer spring rate but i had to settle with ST's this time. so should i just run another bump stop. sounds clever. less travel meaning i shouldnt be coming as close to the tire.

Yes start with 3 on each rear, youll hardly even notice a difference in ride quality.

Lol is this the new ghetto solution of "stiffer suspension" instead of stiffer spring?
Is it actually stiff travel or just dead on doesnt move at all?



@beskone, i got the same offset and tires as u and i dont rub at all, just cut the fenders.

basically yes, they are about x20 stiffer than the oem bumpstops. It takes literally 20 seconds to install them. unless you want to spend 300+ on stiffer rates all around (the right way) or spend 20-30 bucks to alleviate some minor rubs, so take your pick.

Im running 950lbs rears with 2 bumpstops just in case.

hit up eric or tam at supreme powers (vendor here) they have some new cooler fk bumpstops that interlocks with each other. Those default bumpstops are too soft for some aggressive applications.

This is the perfect setup right here...

Beautifully flush, no retarded amount of negative camber, no poke, no over-stretch.

Well done.

Btw, cool pic, his car looks like a toy car or something, lol

Well, I'm not misinformed. Yesterday I'm riding on the interstate and see a hot looking car up ahead. I catch up and it's a youngster with the hell flush, stetched tire set-up. Dudes fenders were wrinkled and chewed up from all the scraping.
I've seen guys at car meets and questioned them. On u-turns the exposed rim from stretched tires scrape the pavement.
Exposed rims like that have to more prone to deterioration from dirt and water exposure whiuch has to hurt your wheel eventually.
I'm also sure you have to watch out for every bump and pothole, instead of just the severe issues.
Nope, you can't drive normally with that kind of set-up.

Hmmmm I guess I have it wrong then, because my fenders aren't wrinkled and my wheels do not scrap the pavement doing U turns I could do U turns all day if I wanted to. I will admit I don't like to much stretch so I'm only running a minor one with a 285 on a 11.5 rim in the rear but still pretty aggressive with a good amount of poke. And I've always avoided potholes( not just the larger ones as you put it) with all my cars. Not because of the rims or fenders but because my cars have all been lowered and it's just my reaction now and it's just better for the car IMO.
