I have an 18x8 wheel +35 and am also using the stock tires, and I have the D2 springs.
My car is parked for the winter.........but I can hear it rubbing right now.
It rubs when it drives straight, it rubs when its parked, it rubs when it turns.......is always rubbing.
lots of people re-used the stock tires on aftermarket wheels (myself included)
pay closer attention to the wheel width, ie: it shouldn't really exceed 8.75 inches wide if you're re-using the factory tire, and I personally would NOT recommend anything wider (like a 9" wide or more)
I think I remember reading about your delete experience....
A couple of people have referred me to the fender tab mod, but I still don't understand how seemingly others claim to have zero issue with wheel and tire setups much more aggressive than mine.
First off, your car looks great!
Secondly............... HOW IS THIS POSSIBLE?, is my car some crazy Canadian spec or something?, literally my wheels are 1.5 inches narrower (and effectively the same offset) and I rub like mad.
Just this morning on the drive to work, I almost couldn't hear...
again, I just can't comprehend how this is possible based on my experience with a rim 1.5 inches narrower and a tire 20mm narrower (albeit on a 35mm instead of your +45mm) ...........................also I'm looking into this "tab" modification
My Daihatsu Mira is quite refreshing for what it is / I haven't driven I Honda Beat, so I can't comment on those, but I will say that the 4 wheel double wishbone on the Cappuccino absolutely crushes the 4wheel macpherson strut on the AZ1.
Kei cars in general are just so much fun to drive...
LOL, yes the Cappuccino is a great car to drive and honestly alot better than the AZ1 I have. And you're totally right that its alot easier to collect JDM goodness because our import law is only a 15year restriction (unlike the 25year restriction as you mentioned that USA has)
Long before I got my 2018 Coupe Si, I was reading this forum trying to make the best decisions on mods, largely based on input from other people.
One of my main concerns has been which suspension and wheels to use together. I wanted a decent lowering and a very conservative wheel setup to...
I've got a couple of Si's (9th gen and 10th gen) and some RHD JDM imports (Mazda AZ1 / Suzuki Cappuccino), and a Type R and a MR2 Spyder etc....
