Dear Needsdecaf, the story is this...... Once upon a time, the time is now and I am ready to buy, I am planning a trip to Las vegas, I had a nail in the shoulder of the tire, and I want to get new rims and tires. You see on the road to vegas, the asphalt is like 150 degrees, i dont feel safe with the tire having a plug in it, so either get a tire, or get all new rims.

Re: Hey KILLERB , I like your rims, where did you get those (kitkat)

No<p>Problem area when you lower the car, is in the rear, not the front. Don't put a camber kit in the rear. The V7's have an offset, and spacers push that rim out further. A camber kit pushes the top of the rim even closer to the lip of the fender.<p>Full wheel lock rubbing is in the front and solved with a couple of washers. Full lock is rare in daily driving anyways. <p>As far as the wheel wells go, don't worry about them on your car. You're not going as low as I am.<p>Fenders get rolled when you start seeing marks on the sidewalls. It's different on each car. Several variables. Easy procedure to do.<br>
