    Default front tires rubbing against fenders

    So Im lowered on bc br coilovers, my ride height is maxed out same goes for my camber. but Im still rubbing my front tires against my fenders over bumpy road, rears used to rub even with the fender roll and pull but right after I went for an alingment rear doesnt rub anymore. is it safe or should i worry about my front tires rubbing against fenders? would I damage anything? I heard that its not really a thing to roll/pull front fenders on mazda 3? also i believe im rubbing front tires on the plastic thing around the fender if im right? any thoughts? let me know. Thanks!!

    its bcuz ur running beefy tires on such aggressive setup?

    if ur aiming for that stretch n poke static dump look...maybe switch your tires to 215/35 or 205/35......ur running 225/45 ..its obvious ull rub those tires to your fenders since u decided to max out ur ride height...

    i mean why max out the height if your not running rubber band tires

    Too aggressive offset sounds like. I have 225 on 8.5" with no issues. Can't remember what I have... 35 or 38 I think.
