Hey gang.

I bought a set of Konig 15' wheels for my 89 325i (E30), new Bilstein heavy duty shocks, Tires are Michelin Hydro tires. Outside of tire is rubbing inside of fender in the rear particular when someone sits in the back. Anyone know how I can get the back up 1-2".

Thanks.
Tim

the wheels are most likely the wrong offset(never seen konigs in the right offset for an e30).. in which case there isnt much you can do about it rubbing unless you tuck the wheel well.

getting eibach to make you a custom set of springs would work.. custom length/spring rate.. i know they do that.
