Thanks Gentlemen. So since the 225/45/15 (23.0 in dia) are a shorter height tire than the stock 195/60/15 (24.2 in dia), would that prevent (or at least decrease) the rubbing mentioned even though they would be on a 42mm offset wheel?
i was on KW v1 coilovers. but regardless of the springs, they all hit the bumpstops in the same spot when you hit big bumps. shorter tire will help.
