just run camber bolts up front. $35 yes its adjustable, enough to let you clear as long as you can follow directions. you may need an alignment afterwards though

Have you done anything with the fender liner? I was rubbing with my 255/40 on 17x8 +45, but I tucked the liner under the tab where it was rubbing and bent the tab up with my finger and I don't rub at all anymore. Took me about 10 seconds on each side.

i've always wondered how to do this. care to explain in detail? i'm rubbing my fender liner clips everytime i hit a bump/unever road.

pics would help. :)

I don't have pics but I will try to explain. Mine was rubbing on one of the clips at the 11:00 position looking at the tire. Remove the clip if it is still there. Pull down the liner in that section and you will see a triangular looking tab with a hole in the center for the clip to go through. Take your liner and tuck it under this tab, then push the tab up with your fingers. It's supper easy to do and you can't tell that it has been done.
