Yeah ebach springs, only rubs if I hit a big bump with wheels turned all the way... rides real nice for a lowered car, but its a beretta and none of them ride super smooth...

Rubs where? Only rub I have is the splash guard on full lock turn, and thats more due to my rim offset being slightly off so the tires are pushed out a bit more, that results in the outer corner touching the splash guard when turning.

I'm pretty sure that's where mine rubs also, I've never really checked... I'm running gtz wheels so its factory offset...

Maybe compared to a base model... but remember my pic above is running on Eibach springs which is 1" drop compared to stock.


Ok thanks! :)

I had to take some REALLY hard corners to get my 225s to rub. The 245s rub much easier, but not really all that much in everyday driving.

Looks good to me. I like the abilty to go over large speed bumps and not hit anything. That and we have big pot holes here.
