Right, first off i bought a set of 18x8 rims last year, fitted with Uniroyal 225/40/18 - no rubbing at all
At Ultimate Dub Show i bought a brand new FL Highsport coilover set and started fitting at the weekend. The rears fit and it is decked to almost the max which i believe to be 55mm but not sure
The fronts however, were fitted but scrubbed that much, is rubbed away underseal from the arch lining on full lock and the tyre wall rubbed the coating off of the coilover spring. The fronts were not totally decked

My question is, will 5mm spacers help this issue or do i need something else??
