    Is it possible to take pics of what exactly he shaved from the plastic liner? Im having rubbing issues with my 16x7 et40 and 205/50/16 lowered with 1 finger gap. I shaved the bolt area that connects the fender and bumper as far as i could but didnt help much. I hate wheel gap and refuse to raise it lol. Had to add about 10mm extra preload but that threw off my turn in/handling.

    At this point, I realized that lowering springs for oem wheels or aftermarket wheels that are similar to oem specs are not a cause for concern. Anything taller and/or wider will most definitely benefit with the adjustability of coilovers and modifying of fenders/fender wells. I actually have 215/40 tires which is a happy medium between 215/35 and 225/40.

    Here are a few pics of what was done. I apologize for the insufficient garage lighting. The trim was cut 2' deep and almost 12 inches long. Even with that done, adjusting the ride height to accommodate the wheel/tire size is critical. Driving normal no longer reveals any rubbing but I have yet to push it hard so we will see when I get that chance.

    Anytime man! I just don't understand why the wheel wells are so freaking tight compared to other cars in its class. Oh well... the joy of modifying cars :)
