12.5mm spacers w/my 220m's on stock suspension, looks great and I don't rub under full compression whilst maintaining that sublime comfort of the stock suspension...it's a beautiful thing! Trial and error amigo, trial and error.

Lowered + 12r/15f spacers, stock Conti3's = rear rubbing


Stock suspension + 12.5mm spacers, stock PZero's = no rubbing

hmmm. even if i dont lower, i have a feeling 12.5 mm still will rub tho. im not sure if the fronts rub, but now with 255 and no spacers, there is a slight whining noise on full lock. dunno if thats normal or not...
so yea... its either 5 or 10 mm on the rear, but does 5mm make a noticeable difference??
