    18" + Eibach Pro-Kit a problem?

    Hello once again my friends.
    Tuesday I am purchasing some:

    18x9.5 w/275/35/18's (Front)
    18x10.5 w/275/35/18's (Rear)

    along with the Eibach Pro-Kit (lowers approx 1.5 inches)

    Will I have any problems with this rubbing/not fitting?
    Thanks for your input!

    What's up! I

    I also have the Eibach Pro-kit. Although I'm currently running 295's in back, I used to have 285/35 Nittos.

    With my 18x10.5 Z06 wheels in back, I did have a rubbing issue when making hard trurns. I ended up having to roll the rear quarterpanel fenders in just a bit. Seeing that you'll only be running with 275s in back, you should be okay; however, check to make sure that your rear tires are centered. Lowering the car has a tendency to shift the rear wheels/axle to the right. I had to buy an adjustable panhard bar to re-center the wheels with the body.

    Shouldn't be too much of a problem as long as you have the adj PHR and I would recommend Tubular LCA's and relocation brackets to make sure the rear stays where it's supposed to be and you don't have spinning problems. I had intrax 1.5's and 17x11's with a 315 tire and the only rubbing I had was taking inclines at an angle then it would rub on the inside when the axle would go in a severe angle.

    Ok I really appreciate the input guys.

    I decided I will be buying 275/35/18's for the front and 295/35/18's
    for the rear. I will see how she sits before I decide to purchase the Eibach
    Pro-Kit. I really don't want too much wheel well though...
