    im on KW coilovers, about 75mm ish alround.
    Ive got merc alloys, 19"x8.5 with ET35, and 225/35 tyres. i used to have slight rubbin when cornering, but i just pulled the arches slightly and have had no problems since. Im guessin u have 235/35 tyres, slightly wider so u may get scrubbin is u go down too far!
