i have a set of tein HA's on my car
running 17 x 9 +20 Fn's on the car.

the fronts are hitting the coilover

im just getting into fitting wheels and working with suspension and everything.

what can i do to fix it?
spacers?
alignment?

more specific? your rim is hitting or the tire? if its the tire you can always run a smaller tire. or if youre not into that youre going to have to run spacers. cant really tell you how big of a spacer to run cause i dont know how close it is. you should really check out the wheel fitment thread also..

Its got to be the tire, because 17x9 +20's clear coilovers all day.

What size tire are you running? Something wider than 235/40's? I know they clear with a 17x9 +20.

Yeah,

Its possible to hit coilover with that size.

its just around that range that makes breaks front fitment, its different with different coilovers...

Just get a small 5mm spacer (slip on)

you should be all gravy.

im running 235/40's
the rim is we took both fronts off and you can til where the inside of the rim is hitting right where the inside tire and rim meet.

they were on my friends fastback with stances and fit perfectly.

its just wierd that they hit on my car.

ima just get a set of 5mm spacers then.

Loosen the nut/bolts where the coilover attaches to the spindle...
Pull the wheel hub towards you and tighten the spindle nut/bolts now...

That will give you just the clearance you need...
I've got the same setup...

You can get a little bit of adjustment with the 2 bolts on the coilovers bottom mount. Drill a bigger hole will allow you to adjust more.

but if you do that,

You need to make damn sure it doesnt walk back in and catch...


I think for you since, its kinda new to you I would suggest just some 5mm's get them from like Pepboys, 10 bucks for a pair.

I posted in the wheel fitment thread too, but as some have said already, I have these same wheels and they fit on my car with no problems. I'm running Stance GR+'s.

I ended up running some 10mm spacers up front, so definitely no hitting anything now.

I still have an extra pair, so if you're interested PM me.

I do have to warn though, that to run these spacers, you'd need extended studs. I went with the ARP extended studs for the Camaros or whatever. It was pretty cheap through Summit Racing.

I have Tein HA's and my fronts rub also, so I just adjusted it as far as itll go and it doesnt rub. And tighten it as hard as possible. Problem solved until spacers. or new wheels.
