    That's with your Skunk2 springs. If he/she is gonna run D2 springs, you'll rub. But I just noticed that they were asking about D2 coilovers, so that extra stiffness may actually keep them from the rub.

    Thank you guys for quick responses and feedback! I'll run the 235s stretched for a little bit and consider the fender tab modification. I'm lowered on H&R springs which are far less aggressive in drop than Skunk and D2.

    I rubbed on the front fender tab but bent that backwards and no more rubbing.

    How do you guys feel about Rotas on a daily driver? I would hate to buy expensive wheels for everyday driving and curb the shit out of them!

    I believe he is referring to Rota and not Rotiform you may have them confused. I personally would run Rotiform but I would never run Rota. People use the argument about what if you curb expensive wheels? You know what happens? They get curb rash and most likely will not structurally fail. However if you search Rota failures on the internet you will find more than a few threads on different forums and images of it. I get that most wheels may come from the same Chinese supplier but top tier brands like Rays and Advan are prestigious for a reason. They have pride in their products a sense of timeless honor that is common with all things in genuine Japanese culture. I would highly advise you to look into brands like gram lights that offer affordable options for buying high end wheels that are often times the same price when you shop for them as replica wheels.

    There are better options than Rota for inexpensive wheels IMO (Rota is pretty low quality). Check out ESR wheels. They even have rotary forged wheels for under 1000 bucks and their styles are "on trend". There are several other wheel companies that sell decent wheels at the 500-700 usd range.
    To answer your question regarding running inexpensive wheels on a DD to avoid damaging very expensive wheels... That just makes sense. Just remember inexpensive and low quality is not mutually exclusive, you can have one without the other, preferably the former and not the latter.
