Well, tonight I took on the task of finally putting the b+g springs on but I found a problem. So far I ahve the fronts done and installation went swimmingly. Before I started on the rears I figured I would take it for a spin around the block and now I believe I have bad fender rub while turning, not at all speeds only when you throw it into the turn. I wasn't even going that hard into them but still. My tires are 195/60/15 and the wheels have about a 45 offset. Any suggestions are greatly appreciated.

You should find what offset you have for sure. I recall a guy who lowered his ae92 gts said he needed at least a 42 offset for his wheels not to rub, they were 205/40/17 I believe.

Shouldn't offset be +38mm max?

Well the wheels are 15x6, but I needed a small spacer in the back to clear the strut. I've always heard the 38 for wider wheels.

I know I dont have to really roll the indise of the fenders, I believe its rubbing on the actual edge of the fender instead of the bit of metal turned up on the inside, maybe a little flaring is in order

Yes, 38-40mm offset is max on the AE92s... that and 195/60-15 is way too tall for the car... I have 195/55-15s on the back and I still think they're big balloons... I can just imagine 60 series. :yikes: :lol:

But yeah, high offset wheels and high sidewall tires will do it, put your OEMs back and you'll see the difference. :)

yeahhh I'm kind of screwed with this right now. I have a few options right now, finish lowering the car and see if I can make room in the fenders, get new tires, or I'm thinking about going with the eibach springs.

yeah really, those things are ridiculous.

Well I'm going back to stock springs for a while I guess. The springs are ok but seem to bottom out a fair amount(with newer struts on too) and are more of a drop than I was looking for/thought they were going to give.

No really, a 195/60-15 is bigger and more ballooney than a 175/70-13... trust me. :lol:
