How wide are your rims?? I am running an 18x8 with 225/40's and I have no rubbing with a sportline drop. FYI

i've got 225/40/18 with the tanabe df210 with a 2" drop and no rubbing, check your plastics to make sure they haven't come loose. confused

The rubbing is all due to the offset of the wheels. What offset is your 18s?

-it is due to the offset, cause I have 225/40/18 and my tires rubbed at stock height. now it's even worse that I dropped it on tein s-techs. My fender plastic actually ripped off, cause I wasn't keeping an eye on it, and it came off at liked 70mph and put a crease in my fender.

-side note
going to purchase 225/35/18 this spring, any suggestions a good tire that isn't very expensive. Choices seem limited compared to 225/40/18, 215/40/18, 215/35/18. really don't want to loose the extra width and step down to a 215, but if it's going to save me a good chunk of money, I may have to.
