    A lot will be down to what size and ET wheels you are running.

    Depends how low you go but you should be ok with 12 & 8mm on stock rims.

    You will probably have to remove to arch screws on the back with 12mm, I did and I'm not that low.

    I have 10mm on the front and do get very very occasional rubbing, massive speed bumps/potholes etc.

    also depends how low you have gone, I've got a 25mm drop on my S3 on stock 18s so its pretty low and fronts never rub, only get the back rubbing when i either have people in the back going over a speed bump

    Do you often have people in the back or carry a lot of luggage?
