Thread: still rubbing

  1. #1

    Default still rubbing

    ok so like my sig says, my 285's still rub after the leveling kit i put on. my wheels are 9'' wide so i think thats the problem with the offset ive got (-12 i believe).
    if i get some wheel spacers to push the wheel out a bit will that solve my problem?
    if so what size spacer should i get 1'' or 1.5''?
    last question... i used hubcentric rings for my wheels... so the spacers need have a 78cm bore which is stock or will it be different?

    Before you start spending money to get rid of the rub see if it can be fixed with a BFH or some plastic trimming. Get in the wheel well and find where its rubbing and see if you can trim or bend things back a little.

    i actually did trim already but the part that is rubbing on is the actual metal... i had a local shop cut off a piece but it still rubs a bit... i dont like it rubbing... any other suggestions guys?
