Thanks charles! You think i'll be ok with the H&R sport springs?
I might do the matte trim. As far as the grills i will keep the color matched ones..

So the 9.5 up front is not rubbing at all? Even on big dips?
I might actually try to install the springs this weekend

Still think you should install the springs, worse case scenario you roll your fenders

Can't roll 'em in front can you?- or does the 330 not have composite fenders?

My long lost twin!


I'm running Conti ExtremeContact DW's in same size as yours, and H&R Touring cup kit.

You should have gone with the +25 offset in the rear, would have sit more flush with rear fender and match front wheel nicely. I ended up selling my 2 rears I originally bought in +38 and got the new ones ( I didn't want to run spacers). I lost money, but the results are worth it.

Hey there twin!
How's your set up? Correct me if I'm wrong but I'm pretty sure your rubbing on the front and rears especially with the H&R cup kit? Unless you did some fender work and/or camber alignment?
And ya, I like the flush look on the rear but am afraid that I might rub with the +25 even with the stock sport suspension.

Rubs slightly over dips in the road @ speed, fenders not rolled and alignment @ factory spec. Just took a trip into NYC last weekend w/3 passengers no problem.



As long as you're not installing Race springs, you should be fine. 12mm spacer out back will put the rears at +26,to match up the fronts nicely.

Charles, what do those rims weigh? With my neg 2 degrees camber, I should be able to get a 255 on the front without an issue right?

Could I run 275 on the back without an issue?

Let me know please.

Hey OP, what brand of tires are you running? I'm curious that a 235 tire has such a small stretch on a 9.5 wheel.

Good plan... when I got my Dinan springs on, my wife didn't like riding in the car because it is so rough..... those rims take out the gaps nicely, looks great.

Wow that is really surprising that you're almost not rubbing!
Especially the front tires sticking out almost past the fenders! Amazing....
