Either get a wider rim or get some 25mm spacers. I think I have some I can sell to you

SpectorV is just getting started.
Send a message via AIM to SpectorV
as you lower your car the front wheels will tuck into the fender more (due to the geometry of the suspension as it compresses)

for the rear you can use spacers to fix this.

Figure out the rim width and the rim backspacing, then say width -backspacing

For the front the number you get should be around 3 inches for the rear 3.75 is about the limit without rolling the fenders, 3.5 would work good.

If you need spacers get some to push it out that amt of difference.
