I had sportlines on my 06zx3 with 215/40/18 falkens on 18x7 +42 centerlines it rubbed very little in back when I had 4 people but nothing to be concerned with. Then I swapped to the black ford racing rap 17x7 on 215/45/17 bfgoodrich g-force kdw's that didn't rub at all. I run my cars hard so I didn't like the soft sportlines for race they are more for show

Than that should be cool. Just get some good shocks and struts for.the springs. A couple of local members have problems with the eibach dampers so I wouldn't suggest geting those maybe kyb agx or some koni's.

This is the key ingredient in making the Sportlines work without rubbing issues.....well matched shocks & struts!!!! Their intial spring rates are too soft and a firmer shock is needed to compensate.

Maybe but I don't think they will last that long. U are doing a 2inch drop I would get something that would work for that drop. I think u would be happy with the setup with good shocks.
