    Tire rubbing against swaybar.

    When my wheels are on lock, the inner sidewall is making contact with the swaybar, where it bends from going under the car, to the mount.

    I have 205/50/15 on Kosei-K1 ET25 wheels.
    H&R Sway bars, with IE sway bar reinforcements.
    Z3 2.7 Steering rack.
    Offset M3 control arm bushings

    I tried a 10.5mm spacer, and it makes the wheels stick out about 1/2" past the fender, I have a 3mm on there right now, and it's not enough. I doubt a 5mm spacer would do much.

    Anyone else had this issue?

    How wide are those wheels? 7" ?

          I posted on my phone, and scrolled forums until I saw the 'For Sale' section, which is usually the last section on most forums.

            All good. Everyone gets my boilerplate reply when I have to move a thread - I don't discriminate.

              H&R front sway bars are bent wider than the factory bar, the rubbing is normal.
