Only recently I have learned how bad these stockers get after "X" number of miles, but I am wondering if my rub if more associated with bad springs or that mistake I made in those Assetto Gara's? I have tried running a 205 tire on the wheels and it only seems to help somewhat.

Any help would be great help!!

Also, don't know if it helps, but I replaced the shocks, thinking it was those that were bad. So I have the KYB AGX adjustables on there. I had them put on at 86K miles.
I totally forgot about running a different offset.

I've edited my original post about rubbing.

Are you planning on upgrading your springs?
