Ok, I installed drop spindles and a disc brake kit. The front tires rub when turning now. I am looking for suggestions for a solution. Narrower tire? A different rally with more offset? "Roll" and trim the wheel well? A combination of these? I would appreciate any input. Here are some pics. BTW, the back is going to be lowered and the back wheel wells will be getting a minor trim.

I am not positive on the backspace. I think it is a 3 1/2 bs 15 x 6. It has a P205/60R15 now.

This is what it looked like before the drop spindles. I had worn out springs though)

14 x 7 rally here with 4-3/4" backspace. There is a guy here in NJ that cut my wheels and added the backspace that I needed. No more rubbing.

Looks like I may have to order some new rallys. Gotta do what I gotta do to keep this stance. It looks good. :) I appreciate all the input.

Update

The wheels are 15x7 and have at least a 4 inch BS. So I tried some new tires. P19560R15s. They work. And they look better anyways. I will trim and roll the fenders just as an added insurance. Will post pics later.

Bolt heads

My old tires rubbed on the bolt heads that hold the inner fender to the outer. I was changing my wheels & tires anyway and the new ones work just fine.
