post a pic of where exactly it is rubbing. i think i know there you are rubbing i have 225's on my 17's and i still rub fenders rolled. you may need to relocate your bumper tab.

This is a pic of my car where i rub. I trimmed the bumper tab but yet to relocate the bumper screw(or bolt in my case).You can see how much space i have there and i still rub on hard turns. =/

Re: Wheel size and coilover question need help

Vexmotorsport is a good site to buy from. I think you'll be fine when you get your coilovers cause it's gonna be stiffer. IMO Roll your fender just to be on the safe side. For the front I believe you have to take off the fender liner but I could be wrong.

Re: Wheel size and coilover question need help

That's seems like a high price for type 1. You sure you aren't looking at type II's
