SWEGER I wish I could find some stiffer (about 50%) springs that didn't lower me more than half an inch or so. Seems everything is either way too soft or loweres 2+ inches. Any one know how the ground control coil overs are? Seems that's my only option besides a full coil over system....

tukaniSVT Yeah, if you go with stiffer suspension, the rub won't happen at all for daily driving.

It's when I do the aggressive driving of AutoX that gets the rubbing going.

If you are just going to get these for daily driving, even on a bit lowered suspension. You will be okay.

GodLovesUgly i run the stock suspension with 225/45/17 race tires, and i rarely rub when autocrossing. if i do rub, it's on my back right tire..

SWEGER Cool. Eventually I will be running either some koni yellows and some stiffer springs or some coil overs...key word is eventually though

sleepyboy If your running the stock SVT suspension then you shouldn't rub. He is running the Eibach Pro kit.

SWEGER So stock height on my SVT I will have to roll the fenders? I'm looking at BF Goodrich T/A KDW in same size as you ar running, just since I've had good experience with those tires before and they're a 300 tread wear so they will have more life in them than the Hankooks you have (another awesome tire). If I have to roll my fenders or change my suspension setup to run these without problems I might go another route...I really liked the idea of how light that setup would be though.

tukaniSVT It is definitely an aggressive setup. If you get thick tires like this, make sure you roll your fenders and have some pretty stiff suspension. It rubs on corners, if you take a turn hard.

But you definitely have alot of grip. ... well, that depends on what tires you get as well.

SWEGER I am a big fan of these. I think some in gold with a slightly less aggressive tire might be my new DD setup for my new-to-me red SVT...

tukaniSVT A Local shop actually ordered them for me. They took about 2 weeks to get to me.

The RS3s were on the list as well as the Direzza Star Z1 and Kumho XS ...

With much recommendations and research, I went with the Hankooks.

You can check out and see if they have any. When you go to their website choose a wheel then check the inventory.

Flynz4me Ray -

This maybe redundant info question, but where did you find your wheels? I'm looking for autox wheels and have decided on the R-S3's for meat (Like you)...
