New wheels

Thanks to Frank W!!

Having some rubbing issues in the back. Do you guys think I need to role the fenders? or move down to 255/30. I had some very minor issues with my other 19's with toyos. Maybe it's the brand tire.

How are the Tein Basics? I am deciding which coilovers to purchase pretty soon. I am leaning towards either the Tein Type Basic or H&R coilovers.

I had the same problem with my tires on my 19's, they were rubbing everytime i would hit a small bump on the road, i had Kumho Ecsta SPT's, as soon as i changed them and got Toyo T1R's the rubbing was completly gone. I suggest you go back to your Toyo's.

Very Clean car, rims work really good!

Very nice. HRE's make a big difference. Now in my opinion since you've swapped out for those rims I'd go back to the OEM 05+ grill. It'll look clean. Keep up the good work.

That color combination is sick. Roll the rear fenders and you should be fine.

I will see what Darwin can do. I guess the cheaper way would be to role the fender.

Darwin can definitely roll the fenders and make them fit rub free. See if he will drop the rear a bit more while he's at it!

-> ->

I've had two passengers in the back, plus luggage in the hatch. I was tucked all the way to the top of the rim and absolutely no rubbing.

What Frank lost you gained in the looks department (sorry Frank but IMO they looked better than the BBS) The color combo is sweet!!
