    Hey having some problems as the rear wheels are rubbing and i thought it was the inner liner but it isnt, ive had a closer look and the tyres a catches the bolt which holds the rear bumper and rear quarter together.

    It is the second highest one as i can see one side of it is bright silver where it has been rubbing and there is a very light mark on the tyres where it has been catching.

    What can i do to resolve this?

    Im expecting i cant just take this out and leave it or will it cause problems?

    I could try a smaller screw but im afraid that it wont be small enough as it is rubbing to close to the centre.

    Any ideas?

    i think the normal silver looks spot on. to many people changing wheels to grey etc etc. whats the spec on the tyres and wheels ? and are you on coilovers?

    looks sweet also lol

    Cant say I'm a fan tbh, never did like the stretched rim showing look as such, also the colour sticks out like a sore thumb against your car, wouldnt say it goes well, but hey if you like it then guess thats all that matters.
