    that is well nice mate! the roof goes well! how much you dropped yours by?
    As i have a 2.0 sri g now on 18/35/215 and its lowered and it scrubs like hell! the car must be lowered 40mm cause can still get a jack under it and my last 2.2 sri g was lowered 50mm and couldnt get a jack under it!

    I cant say for sure how low it is but its on coil overs with no rear adjuster fitted and the fronts have about 20mm of thread left. As for jacking i use the front engine subframe as I wont use standard jack as i dont trust them.

    Oh and i get no scrubbing at all

    I have got rennsport coilovers, or hot tunning on janspeed which ever they are all the same.

    Should not be the offset as they are a standard wheel.

    Is it front or rear that catches. And is it only on bumps that it rubs

    Ah realised they tyres that catch are on the car now not the vxr rims then
