Where did you experience rubbing? In the front or the rear? Over bumps, or all the time?

First, don't worry about the asinine commentary. That's normal for this forum, albeit childish.

Second, assuming the wheels/tires worked well on the original car, you're almost certainly in trouble because of the drop. Either sell or return the wheels and tires, or bring the car back to spec, height wise.

your set up should not rub... what suspension are you running on and where are you rubbing...

i currently have 19x9.5 +20 255 35 and 19x11 +33 305 30 with no rubbing. at eibach drop.... so not sure what you have or what your running on with your offset and size should not rub...

although my guess is that your front is rubbing on full lock...

265/35 on the front is way too tall. the rears shouldn't rub, but if they do, I'm guessing it's on the inside.

Quit the unhelpful, condescending, sarcastic remarks. If you have nothing helpful or constructive to add, simply move on. That applies for this thread and any others.

I'm sure all the smartasses popped out of their mom's womb with a fully developed English vocabulary and grammar.
