If I remember right, sedans are more prone to rubbing than coupe.

You can do it, just have your rear fenders professionally rolled.
Cool, good to know...I like how the car sits now,so I can put my money towards a type II intake manifold instead

I am starting to debate some of these answers. Here are some pics I took today and I honestly am starting to think I will no rub with the drop I am looking for. It is an inch in the rear and maybe one and one half in the front. (That I want to drop it.) The top 2 are the rear wheel. The middle pics are the front wheel. To be clear, I mean how flush they are with the fender with the 38mm offset. The bottom one is the rear side view. Opinions anyone?

You have a coupe right? Anyone have a sedan with an offset of +42 or lower and not have rubbing issues with about an 1" to 1.5" drop? Thanks!

Thanks to Russian Legend, I have received some SWEET PICS of his drop on the Koni Eibach setup. He said he has them on the middle perches and the rear fenders were rolled maybe about 5mm. The front was not rolled at all. He is runng 18x7.5 with a +42 offset. Feel free to enjoy. I say, SWEET!

Hey Guys,

I have a similar question on my set-up. You can see my coupe's drop in my sig.....about 1'' all around on just Konis.

The wheels I want only come in: 18 x 7.5, +42 offset. I would do, of course, 225/40/18.

So, what do you think? Will it rub? Some say yes, some say no. I have a VERY mild drop. Need opinions asap. Thanks.

Eric

You'll be straighter than 6 o'clock. Don't worry about it.
