fenders scrapping to tire help.,

e90 335i sport package

bought some volks staggered 19" wheels

negative 10 camber so front wheels slightly stick out of fenders.

rolled and lightly pulled the fenders on my car, before I lowered my car.

I lowered my car on H&R sport springs and my front fender is around 1/4th inch from tire. 1/2 inch on back from fender to tire. The rear is fine, but the front is causing scrapes

so it's scrapping at the slightest bumps on the road.

Ideas what I can do?.

What are the offsets of the wheels?
What tires do you have on them?
What do you mean by negative 10 camber?

Do you have a pic? Worth a thousand words ya know.

Sure, easy:

Raise your car.

On another note: you didn't mention wheel offset and tire width and height. Those would be next On the list

You can buy the right wheels or put your stock ones back on. And also give us info that actually means something.

Don't be a puss and raise your car like that's your only option. Some peoples vag's on this forum get real sandy when it comes to lowering but it looks amazing so they're just jealous. But first I need to know what tires you're running (sizes don't care about the brand) and wether your willing to roll your fenders. I personally would've gone with coil overs so you can stiffen it up a bit and keep it from rubbing.

Edit: nvm just read that your rolled my bad. Camber plates may be in need

I think you're on to something here.
I always feel jealous of cars that scrape their body parts with fast moving hard tire rubber and metal wheel lips. I wish my car had that feature.

It's called wheel offset, which we still don't know!

His first post says that his front wheels stick out because of the negative 10 camber... I think going to negative 42 would fix it.

Funny. But that would be positive camber.

Sandiegobmw, what are your offsets??

What are your offsets?

Your offsets, what are they?

Offsets, what they are?

Les offset tou, qu'est ce que ce?

Ti einai ta offset sou?

¿cuáles son sus desplazamientos

was sind Ihre Offsets?

I wonder if he means the OFFSETS are -10 and not the camber!

OK Sandiego dude, get your offsets, then we'll talk. They are stamped on the back of your wheels. Nobody can help you without this info.

Take a pic. Really.

P.S. not of the back of the wheels, of the car as it sits now, just in case there was any confusion.
