    I have just fitted my eibach sportline springs and b5 perches and it looks awesome just what I was after but it does tuck a fair bit of tire up front and Im afraid of turning the front wheels now lol. Has anyone got anything to say to put my mind at ease whos in the same boat please as im worried I might damage my arches ( im on 19" rims with 235 45 or 40 on ill have to check ha ha). Thanks

    When i first fitted my coilovers mine was tucking tyre and its rubbed a small bit of paint off the inside of my arch, when i took a roundabout or corner too quick you heard it due to body roll and when i went over a bump in the road it scraped. Ive raised mine a bit now i can fit 1 finger cleanly inbetween the wheel and arch and it hasnt scraped since. My wheels are 18s 8" et32 tyre is 40 or 45 cant remember

    My front arches sit literally millimetres above my wheels, I haven't had any scraping or arch bending issues and it's been like that for over 2 and a half years.
