Hey guys

Right i have fitted the lovely Enkei wheels onto my ep3 and i really love how they look. However the rear passenger side wheel/type is scrapping when cornering. The car is lowered on Eiback, 20/25 rear and 15 front. I have attached a few pictures, to me it doest sit any lower than the drivers rear but it is deff scrapping the arch, would this be down to a nackered shock or is it to do with my camber settings (cant remember what setting its is on, will have to check the print out)...dont think it will need arches rolling....im running 205's.

thanks guys.

btw, just noticed theres no image upload button :scratch: sorry but how do i upload picture????

Knackered shock isn't going to help as it'll compress down more on that corner. You may have to put some more negative camber on.

Guys and gals anyone got any images or own car in cosmic grey with the evo 9 wheels on in a gold or bronze tyoe colour.

Looking to have my wheels re done in winter and I can't decide what colours I really like, one of hardest choices I'm making on my car lol.

I fancy a gold but not too bright, I really don't like too dark hence why not considering black or anthracite.


Show me your wheels

I have got an ep3 Currently running stock suspension, I do want to have it lowered around 30mm, basically could someone pm me as it will then come up as an email (not on here very often) as to what I will need like bolts what tyre size literally everything? Thanks guys

Anyone car to share some more pics of 235/40/17 or 225/45/17 on Evo8 wheels. I've been doing a lot of reading on these wheels. Just want to make sure what tyre size I want

I've just put them on. But having issues on hard cornering from drivers side. 215 45 17 tyres, eibach -30mm springs, grinspeed frsu (not sure what settings but nothing intense), arches rolled.
Really annoying! Shall I go for more neg camber on rear? It seems to be very close to the bracket that joins bumper to quarter from the tyre.

What settings should I have with those tyres and suspension?

What do people do with reference to the center caps and swapping them for some Honda ones?
