Couple of weeks ago i picked up a set of used 18x7.5 real Racing Hart CP10's with some nice nitto555 225/40/zr18 tires :number1 . I went to mount them today only to find out that the rear tires are rubbin on the rear fender. I was afraid that the wheel/tire package would rub but i couldnt pass up the deal and figured id give it a shot since I've been looking for a set of Racing Hart's for a while now. I cant even squeeze my finger up in there (pics later tonight) even though i can on the front. Damnit :bash

With that said do i...

A) Do i part with these sick nitto555's and go through the hassle of searching for a 225/35/18 tire?
2) Do i find the right tools and roll the fenders?
iii) Do i sell the wheels and tires, go back to blades with toyo's and use money for other goodies?

All you need is a camber kit.
That will correct your negative camber which i'm sure you have and will eliminate the tire rubbing on the fender(s).

search for a camber kit, they arent that expensive and will be well worth it...you're gonna save inner tire wear on your tires.

whats the offset of the wheels?


You could let them rub for a while and let the fenders "roll" themselves....or you could roll the fenders back carefully.....or you could buy different tires....but I want to know your wheel offset.

The eibach pro-kit is known to drop a lot lower than advertised. I've heard people blame it on sagging but it could just be missadvertisement.

a camber kit will only make it worse. some negative camber is good since it will keep the top of the tire/rim away from the body of the car.

mlh908....go with your third option for now.....iii) Do i sell the wheels and tires, go back to blades with toyo's and use money for other goodies?
