Hey ya'll, so I just got my new rims mounted. Work Emotion CR-Kai, 18x8.5 +38. I had my front fenders rolled and my rears shaved, yet I'm still rubbing like crazy in the rear. Anything I can do? I don't want to raise the car b/c I lke the height...Do I just need alignment? Or do I need a sway bar or stiffen up the coilovers...

i have a nooby question
i have stock 16s on my ex coupe. im torn between getting coilovers and springs i don't want to be slammed or flush but i want a good stance, nice and low.
the reason Im asking here is because i cant find a answer anywhere else. if i go with coilovers would i hella scrape being to low on my stock 16s with tires 205/55/16? i ask because i don't plan on buying new rims/tires just yet, but i eventually will.
just looking for the right direction to start

I would always advise to purchase coilovers over springs. It's more money upfront but in the long run it'll give you so many more options...

I have don't cash saved up for either springs or coils so price is not a big deal. I just don't want to buy coils and have to wait for new rims and tires because il scrape too much with my stockies lol so you junk I would be ok with coils on all stock rims and other suspension components? ?

Go for coils, you can adjust the height so you can get the best look without scraping. Springs has a set height so you're stuck with whatever drop the springs give you, scraping or not

If those are 18s, then yes you can get that height if you max out the rears. I'm on skunk 2 pro s2 and my rears have about another 1-1.5cm drop left before maxing out with both lock rings still intact. My front can go lower than in that video before maxing out lol. Only reason I kept this height is because I need to be able to get around without getting stuck on bumps. You'll need some camber bolts for the front and a full kit for the rear though if you want that stance

Absolutely right this ain't for me. Thanks for showing me how hard this is prior to me spending money on wide rims. Suspension still sounds like something worth doing even without the rest. Ill just stick to the regular rims.

Got a question, when the lip of your rims are really close to the fender and youre tucking pretty much all of the tire, what can you do to be sure that they don't smack into eachother? Do I have to lessen the dampening or should I just add more camber so that when I go over a dip, the wheel will just tuck into the fender and not hit? Im scared to drive my car now and ruin my wheels. Running -1.5 front -5 in rear 17x9 +29 215/40 with roll+pull if it helps.
