mackguy: after lowering my car 1", I noticed some rubbing of tires on fender lips, wheel well liner--something! I am planning on getting 215/40 tires and that would not raise the CG as much as your option. What about 205/45? Anyhow, I REALLY need to read about all the guys with lowered springs, etc., and find someplace to roll out my fenders! Good luck!
