eibach springs

I'm looking at some eibach springs. I'm worried about rubbing though. Anyone have the eibach pro kit or sportline kit? I'm still on my factory 17s, but I'm getting some new wheels, sticking with the 17s and probably gonna go with a 205/45 17 tire. Any input is appreciated.

Also any suggestions on wheel and tire brands, and where to buy...let me know.

The Pro Kit/ Pro Sysem is quite likely the most popular suspension upgrade with the FF crowd. It works well with 215/45-17 tires and lots of different wheels. The key factor is wheel offset and rim width. Stock offset is 49 to 52.5 mm depending on the wheel. From lots of reports we know 45mm will work without problems as well. 7" wide rims tend to be the popular selection as they work well with the above tire size and several 40 aspect ration tires as well. Below 45mm offset its becomes a little iffy (but some people have had luck as low as 42mm) and often depends on tire shape (sidewalls, tread, etc) and wheel width.
