    Modifying front/Rear fenders for rubbing issues (pics)

    Figured I would post this up, may save rim damage for somone....I fitted 285/25/20 with a 10MM spacer...looked to be fine, hit a larger than normal bump and my rim got scratched all the way arpoundthe top lip.....yeah I was pretty damn pissed! So I strated looking under there and found a well know spot for rubbing...cut it out...still slightly rubbed with rolled fenders. I didnt want to cut the inner fenders out but shape them to make the more square to add preacious space I needed. I took a dremel ginded on the inder fender to make metal thinner and with the added heat (check outside paint to be sure it does not get hot...mine never did) I was able to hit the inner lip with ease and bend it until it touched the inside fender (flush) and this did the trick. I aslo cut the bolt out in the front fenders.

    This may be well know but thought some pics could help somnone.

    So can your 285's 20" fit I'm there with no problem? What offset are your wheels.

    Im able to put 275's 19" with a 12 mm spacer in. Orginal wheel offset is 35.

    I may go to 2.1 to be sure..that or use a 3MM spacer to get the wheel off the strut and use a 305....I spin 285's easily. Wavetrac helps but still spins.

    What's the width and offsets of your wheels? I've been waiting for someone to try and make a 305 fit, based off some measurements I took, it is theoretically doable.

    it can fit, a 295 is 5MM bigger then a 285 I believe so with a 2MM spacer it can be done...need the spacer to keep rim away from strut.

    Rims are 10.5" with a 42 offset.

    Depends, E90 can handle a
    bigger tire than a E92 or E93 but I removed the inner fender liner ants rolled the fenders and that would be more than enough room depending on offsets and how low you are.

    Guys, with all respect, having 2.1 degrees of neg camber and then complaining about spinning wheels is a little Click here to enlarge
    If you put wheels at an angle to the ground with neg camber it is nice for fast corners, but for straight line launching you'd be better of with zero degrees camber.
    You guys are reducing contact pressure towards the outside of the rear tire, so yes, it will lose grip faster.
    Even wider tires is not really gonna solve that.

    totally disagree with you, depends a lot on the suspension mods you have....I went to -1.5 and my straight line traction greatly increased. I have not tested the -1.9 yet. The thing that actually hurts traction the most in these cars is to stiff of a sway-bar in the rear....should only stiffen the front only. When I had less camber with same wheels/ tires I had a lot more wheel spin. These cars where designed with a lot of camber in mind.....any other car I would agree with you.

    Looks great to me but the price is insane...

    8k body kit + shipping + paint + install = almost 10k when everything is said and done.

    You can have a body shop make your car into a widebody for less...
