Got 19's on my 3dr ZR, just wondering if anyone else has and if so do they rub on the rear?

The fronts fine, still get full lock and all but the rear rubs on big bumps and sharp corners, just wondering as i do have one heavy install in the boot, would that be most likely the problem rather than the 3dr arches?

Scrubbing else where, i think it's the weight of the stereo install pushing the suspension down.

I've just been driving it and it's rubbing very rarely on bumps now, check tyres and they're not damaged so no sure what it was catching on and it's only the left hand side now?

Might be a longshot but are you sure that your rear wheels are 100% true? If they dont point straight forward its possible they might rub under cornering etc.

possibly it's out as i've ripped my suspension off before after having an alloy wheel and concrete block chucked at me while doing 60mph the front wheel cracked the suspension snapped and on the rear the wheel got ripped off destroying the suspension.

:wallb: why me...

I have ways of making it work... operation think of a cunning plan is underway

Ive got a canny heavy install like and mines dropped 50mm on 17's ...

when i hit bump with people in the back it rubs like.

theres like a lip on the inside of your arch is you heat this up and bend it in it shud stop them rubbing... if you dont you could end up ripping your tyre and im pritty sure that tires for 19inch rims are expensive.

oh and make sure you have some clean varnish stuff incase your paint cracks... youll need to put it on to stop it from rusting.
