305 & 275 with Lowered Suspension

I notice many are running 305's but haven't heard much about any with lowered suspension?

Who's out there and is there any rub?

So I'm on 295 with 10mm rear spacers so 305mm. I'm lowered pretty much flush and no rubbing at all.

Just installed 10mm spacers on a K&W HAS with 305's with no issues whatsoever... Best modification I have made to the car since I bought it.

I have 275 fronts and 305 rears. I am lowered on H&Rs and do get slight rubbing on the inner lining on the fronts when turning the wheel. Rears are fine

What tires are you on? I'm getting some PS4 in those sizes this week and I'm lowered on KW HAS. Just curious. Thanks.

What sort of shot, I can take a few pics of the rear quarter, but give me an idea on the angles you need? Here is a pic on the lift with the 305's with 10mm spacers and HAS springs.

Thanks for the response. I'd like to see a side view of the car to see what it looks like lowered with the KW HAS and a rear shot to see how far the 305's come out with the 10mm spacer.

Can you please also share how much you've lowered your car by?

Thanks,
Barry

Can't tell you exactly how much lower it is, but it is noticeable, but the ride is so much improved even on Sport + which is where I tend to prefer to drive. We had it on and off the lift a few times to get the height right, it is going back in this week for an alignment so I can ask where the spring settings are if need be. The alignment is really not necessary as it is straight and true but they want to see how it is after the springs settle in.

Looks great! Thanks for posting the pics. If you are able to determine the measurement I would appreciate it. I have a 2015 that I picked up a couple of months ago that I'm thinking of doing the same mod with.
