Lowering

So I know lowering springs are great they give a more aggressive look and help with handling and with that they sound great however I have recently gotten 18 inch rims and am afraid to install the coil over kit I just bought because from the pictures it hugs stock wheels pretty well question is will my 18 inch rims keep me from being able to use the springs with out rub?

Most decent auto parts stores will rent fender rollers that attach the hub and roll the fender lip inward for more clearance.

I haven't seen any signs of rubbing yet. I haven't raced the car with them on yet so idk. But I have taken a few spiral onramps at speed and mountain roads. It's 275s up front, I'm going 265s up front soon with different tires so that'll help a bit, but I'm not worried about rubbing. I've been keeping an eye on the tires.

A heat gun and a mallet works pretty good also. That's how mine were done.

So I have since found a problem :/ after looking at my car the tires in both back and front actually sit about a 1/4 inch out side the fender ... If i lower it with these the lip won't rub the side the fender will sit on the tire itself ... Blah

I plan on getting some 18inch wheels as well, but instead I was planning on getting some eibach or at performance, which is recommended if money is not a factor?

I'm lowered about 3.5"s and don't rub with my 18's but I had to roll my fenders aswell I made a "how to" on rolling your fenders if you search for it on here. It tells you how to do the mallet method and with a roller methods as well.

Are you running spacers? And what offset are your wheels if your not?

The milanni website says 12 but that makes no since because I thought the positive offsets meant they set farther in the fender
