I had a 2t sportback which had the eibach springs in and wen lowered the wheels would touch the arches with 19 inch rims. Thats y i am 2 minded of doing so. Does anyone know of any such inccident and can help me solve the problem?

    getting the right offset will stop rubbing issues minimum of 45 offset

    just had the same trouble myself had to get a new set of rims cos the previous owner put 35 et wheels on and it rubbed with standard suspension .

    if you get 225 or even 215/35/19 tires you should be fine , it makes the tire wall slope back and shouldnt have issue's...
