I could go lower if I want but not safe for the street. And no in hell I would be running stock spring it will not hold, or just Bumpstops lol. I have full Coilover Suspencion.... You're like the 2nd person that tells me to get spacer but I don't know if it will rub since tires are almost touching. The offset on those wheels are Front 13 and Rear 15. What would you suggest me the size of the spacers if you know.

jack the car up from the side, then go around to the other side and measure how much room there is to the inner fender while the suspension is compressed.
m5 fender liners will buy more rubbing room.
