That look on the front wheels is only possible with some negative camber dialed in.

It looks like there is more than -2.3 degrees negative camber from the pictures I see.

Curious to hear from the OP, in regards to what suspension settings he has on that car. (at the time those pics were snapped)

Oh, the car's on KW Clubsports. The rear's even lower now. The front might be a fraction lower also. I'm not sure what the specs are in that pic, but right now the rear is at -2.25 and the front is -2.75

Cool, that sounds about right.

That degree of camber is nessesary to tuck the wheels inside the front fender.

How much are you lowered front and rear on the KW's? (from stock ride height)

Bumping this so I can get my 5th post so I can PM Sard a message, which I will repeat here.

Do your fronts rub? I have the exact same setup but my fronts rub. I was going to originally roll the front fenders but realized they're plastic.

I have the same setup and no rubbing issues. You need to get the proper camber and alignment done on the vehicle.

bapesta206 I did alignment at a trusted shop. Are you suggesting a camber kit or just having them adjust the camber? What brand of tires do you have? Mine rubs just barely, wondering if 255 in another brand of tire would fix it, or going down to 245.

You can see the white discoloration where it rubs in this pic:

Edit: Sorry, by same setup I mean the same spec wheels and tires but lowered on Dinan stage 1 springs. (Just read the last page of the thread)

if you want to stay with a 255 youll have to add some camber, or switch to a tire that runs smaller like a pole position

we recomend 245 typically with this wheel setup so it fits with no issue

I have the same wheel and kw clubsport and when I turn , the front tire is rubbing against the fender liner, especially the side towards the rear of the car, what can I do to get rid of this other than raising the ride height?
