Just how I like it.
Thanks! I was trying to pick a style that looked sporty and aggressive, but not too over the top.. Sometimes thats a fine line with 22's. I was also trying not to get the same wheels as anyone else here, which was a challenge because there are a lot of sweet 7's on this forum.

New Savini wheels on my F02

So I got the correct H&R springs for the 750iL installed now, and it definitely fixed the bad handling that I was experiencing, but I am still rubbing the plastic vents in the wheel well primarily when turning as I'm backing up. The shop that installed my springs looked at it and the said the liners are installed correctly, and that it will eventually stop as the plastic wears down, and I get some tire wear.

Is anyone else experiencing rubbing with H&R and 22's?

Oh man that's no good. You might need to get some coil overs so that you can adjust the ride height and the spring rate to suit your personal needs.

Been there done that with my e60. I don't even think that's an option with this model due to rear self leveling air suspension.

I know there are several other members here with the same setup as me. (H&R + 22's).
Anybody else rubbing the liner in reverse?

Re: New Savini wheels on my F02

I initially installed H&R (new set) on this car after having them on my previous e65. I noticed rubbing immediately on the drivers front with even slight turning and also on a couple of slight dips. I immediately uninstalled them for Eibach. Now I get a ever so slight rub only when turning hard left on drivers side. After viewing the inside fender and tire, it's perfectly acceptable now. But I still find it odd and believe the F0 sits slightly lower than the e65.
*edit* or the inner lining is thicker or just more of it.

Yea it's soo close..if I push forward on the front of the liner and hold it, it doesn't rub. The guy from the shop says it won't hurt anything, and I agree, but it's kinda embarrassing to have it make the noise when I back up out of a parking space or the driveway.

I have never had any rubbing issues in any situation. Letting it wear down a little and it should be fine doesn't sound like a good solution to me. Maybe an offset issue?

Should not rub. Tires may be too large on sidewall. Possibly wrong springs. Possibly links not sized correct. Too wide rims. Multiple things must be looked into. Needless to say they should not rub.

9.5 is a little big up front possibly. Also offsets may be to aggressive pushing them out too far.

Use this to make sure your new tire diameters are within 3% of stock sizes.

If not, that could be part or all if the issue.

Most importantly, remove the RWS and have it professionally weighed. Even an ounce off from tolerances can throw the whole cars suspension off and make it a guaranteed death trap. That should be the first order of business! Post your results!

If I did my math right, I'm under the 3%.
Stock is 27.68, my front is 28.26. 3% over would be 28.5.

I do have a dremel

A couple of days ago, I took some time to look deeper into my rubbing issue in the right front, and I think I am on to something. It looks like the right side of the front bumper was not correctly reinstalled. ( the dealership had the front and rear bumpers repainted prior to selling it to me CPO, to repair some scratches etc from the PO)

On the right side the inner liner is 2x as close to the wheel as it is on the drivers side. Also the bottom of the bumper is loose and flimsy compared to the drivers side. I plan to have them adjust the bumper forward to match the drivers side, and then make sure everything is completely fastened like it should be to see if that resolves my rubbing issue.

On a side note, I cleaned it up today, and met a couple graphic arts/photography students for a photo shoot in downtown Cincinnati. They are going to use it as one of their assignments, and I get free pictures out of it!. They should be done preparing the pics by friday.
