Yes I am going to be one of "those" guys and ask a question that seemingly is answered via the SEARCH function. But I have searched extensively and haven't found my combo and therefore my answer. I got a new suspension for Christmas, I also got new wheels last October, Consists of:
17x9" Cobra R Replicas, perhaps Dante Design (it's got the fake snake in the center caps)
Bilstein Cobra Vert Rears
1.75" Drop Vogtlands
With almost 2" of drop will I still be able to run 255/50/17's all around without a rubbing issue? Either with the UCA or the wheel well?
If UCA rubbing is an issue, is using say a 4mm spacer safe/good idea?
With said 17x9's is running a 275 in the rear doable without rolling or modifying fender.
Thanks in advance!!!
Not sure about the 275 rear rubbing or not... however I run 255/50/17 all around and the only thing you have to do to make them fit is clearance the upper ball joint excess, the knob that protrudes through the spindle. It doesn't hurt anything, don't fear removing it.
