That's good to know! Thanks bro!
I'll order those AD08r right away!

This interesting and kind of hard to understand...the lower the less rubbing?
Is it because the negative camber change when lowered?

The negative camber means the top of the wheel is closer to the inner fenders when compared to zero camber. His rubbing is on the inner fenders, so bringing the car lower, will possibly give ever so slightly more clearance.

I like how the tires are not stretched and the rim protectors may actually help. Need to keep this in mind when I get new tires.

Thanks.

Any rubbing with passengers or passengers in back?

Rubbing event occurred with 130lb passenger next to me. No one has ever sat in the back seat lol. The rear rub only happened under full compression and hasn't happened since. Do a few burnouts and you'll be fine

Do you think there would be any rubbing issues with these sizes on stock suspension at stock height?
