Hey guys I recently lowered my impreza with kings super low springs and they are sitting on 18×8.5 XXR wheels. Ever since I have lowered it the back wheels occasionally rub on the guards when I go over a bump and it's so painful to hear. I have been quoted $500 to roll the rear guards which I think is a bit over priced. Will rolling the guards solve this issue or is there something else I should consider? (except going back to stock) any help would be great, cheers

Roll the gear guards and if needed camber bolts of the rear

Have you put any more thought into squeezing some more power out of the engine. Like strapping on one of those intake fans

Slab to a forum member who know what they're doing with a guard rolling device ;)

I wouldnt pay more than $50 a corner. For $500 id be wanting a guaranteed no cracked paint and all sorts of other stuff. People usually do it out of home. Best bet would be to find a QLD based facebook group and ask the people. Dont think we have many QLD members unfortunately

Wheels too big, springs too low. My car rides lower, but I've made my pretzel slower.

Wheels aren't the problem it's the springs. Heaps of suby's have XXR's, they look mint

No, the genuine wheels that XXR ripped off look mint, XXRs look exactly like XXRs, that is cheap copies.

For sure having the fenders roll will do the trick. I had to roll all 4 of my fenders to stop from rubbing. Now they don't rub anymore at all. Also that price is way to much. I'm sure even the tool cost less than that. And when you look at it....It takes 15 mins to properly roll a fender. So he charging you $500 for 30mins work!!!!!!! Find somebody else.
