i got a 96 accord with 17" rims and about a 3" drop. my wheel are basically in the fenders. it looks sweet and i have no trouble turning. but i was wandering what i can do in my fenders to free up a little space.

um , maybe you could get a wide body kit
and flare out the fenders a bit ?
but you are gonna have to cut your current fender
and get another piece to get the flare
just a suggestion from me view,,

give ya a piece of mind

Rolling will clear up some space, but if you want a lot of space, then yeah, get some fender flares and cut a part off of the original fender. lates.

Oh, what did you use to drop your car, coil overs?

no i dont have coilovers. i got H&R racing springs. they say they will drop your car 2" in front and 2.25" in the rear, but its way lower in the back. i cant even correct my rear camber because the if i do the tires will hit the fenders.

well, if youve got a 3" drop im guessing youve got a pretty bad camber problem. i would call up h&r and complain to them that you didnt get the advertised drop, otherwise, w/ that much of a drop you are going to be going through tires every few months.

i love the springs and i have tokico struts too. kind of a hard ride, but i still like them. with the 17's though its cramped. i think that if i had 35 series tires it would be fine though, but i drive on the interstate alot. im thinking about getting 45's, but i dont know yet. oh and the car handles pretty good. i can take 90 degree turns goin alot faster than i used to and not squeel the tires. watch out for bumps when you turn though.
