Will they rub?

I currently have 215/35/18's and Im tired of them for the time being. So I decided to get some good rubber for the stocks. Do these rub? I have a quaife and I want to be able to use it finally


I read alot of posts about these being good for auto-x, but I dont want more problems than I have now.

Thanks guys,

Brad

I run these on Rota Slips (40 Offset) with Eibach Prokit at Auto-X and don't have any rubbing issues (no rubbing). One of the other 5280 team members used to autocross a wagon on stock 16s with the Azenis and had no problems (stock suspension). Unless you have some sort of serious drop, I doubt you will rub.

Thanks for the reply,

Im not so much worried about the fenders as I am about the inside rubbing, since the stock offset is so far in, you know?

Dude,
I have had JUST ENOUGH Rub to take the dust off the Struts under HARD Cornering while Braking.
Not EVEN Enough to Feel, and believe me, I notice Feel and Sounds.
They're T-Totally Fine.

And BTW, they're AZENIS... Singular or Plural.

Maybe I'm wrong, but to me that sounds too much like "penises".

I've never heard anyone say anything but "Azenis", to the point that many mistakenly say "Azeni" as Singular.
I think of it like "Deer" and "Deer".

Honestly, if it was there, I don't remember seeing the Sportlines reference the first time I looked at this thread.
With that in mind, I have no idea what effect the drop will have, as I'm running SVT Springs currently.

Well, it was there from the beginning. But the tires are on, no rubbing yet.


Thanks,

I run 215/45-16's on my 16x7 40mm offset Rota's too. I have H&R coilovers and have never rubbed even once in 15,000 miles.
