the 2nd problem im having... on my 2001 tiburon has to do w/ my front tirewells/fenders i have it lowered on intrax springs, and 205/140/17 konig traffiks/falken ziex 502's.. and i've noticed my fenders (at the top of the tirewells) are starting to bend out a bit... i still haven't gotten my alignment done, or added a camber kit.. as i've only driven it for under a month with the springs.. (wanted to make sure they settle alright) is this normal, even with correct camber, and alignment, or am i just stupid to have not had those 2 things done to begin with? the fender/tirewells are starting to dig into my tires... scraping them a bit.. leaving small slashes in the top of the outside of the tires.. front only... how should i address this problem?

205/40 is making your profile too low. Your speedo is off, too.

You should get 205/50 to be in range with stock 195/55.

I think that's your prob.

Actually you should be almost the same overall diameter as before, 195/55/15 and 205/40/17 work out about 0.5 milimetres different.

sooo.... camber correction kit for the front, and rear.. and an alignment job should fix this? im pretty sure this doesnt have anything to do w/ the tire/wheel size... so whats the verdict? lol

I gave this a bit of thought, cos I'm cosidering going to 17" wheel on my Elantra. It could be a number of things:
- negative camber
- too much drop
- shock absorbers too soft
- too much offset on wheels

DAMN! i almost want to put this post in the flame forums... because im PISSED!!! a big piece of paint fell off of my fender wells.. because i guess i hit a bump w/ the wheel turned or something... damn it... they're bent still as well.... guess i have to see a body shop.... but that's not going to really 'fix' anything.. is there a way to fix this problem for good... as in it won't happen again? stupid Intrax springs..... or possibly even stupid konig traffiks.. which turned out to be 215/40/17's instead of 205... which i have a receipt for... could the tire size be the problem?

roll the lip on the inside of your fenders, this should eliminate the digging into the tires. you should also get the alignment and camber kit to prevent from having to get new tires down the road.

the problem has nothing to do with your tire size. 205/40 is what you want for 17's, you should be just about the same diameter as stock with them. and plus anything bigger will increase the scraping, and through off your speedo.

Its the tires, imo. The traffiks should be the correct offset.

i got quoted 275$ to get my front fenders rolled... wtf... aero colours in midland, tx.... isn't that a bit excessive? they also tried quoting me 600$ to paint my dash.... lol 14K gold paint or something eh? i'm gonna go body shop hunting tomorrow... Im thinking of getting the z shark fenders.. and whenever i have them painted, i'll just get them rolled (if need be) at that time. ) i have the rear camber kit (eibach) i just need to purchase the front, and i'll slap those on.

hey #1 pimp, what is the best technique to use if you want to roll them yourself? I've got 17's on my 2k1 elantra and get some scraping. And i plan to drop the car in march. i have my stocks on for the winter, but I'd like to get this done before I put them back on.<img src=/images/forums/snitz/thumbup.gif width=25 height=18 border=0>Thanks dude

hi, im new here. it seems i have the same problem. i have 17" rims, 215/40/17 tires and 1'6" drop King Springs. its now ruining my fenders. so once in a while, i hammer the fender back to its normal position.

someone adviced me to get camber kits to prevent scrubbing. could this be a good idea? and how do i roll in the fenders?

thanx in advance

The "home" way to "roll" your fenders is to remove the wheel, and fenderwell liner, and pound the fender lip out with a baseball bat or BFH.

woops forgot about this post lol, random is right take a bat or hammer (rubber). if you use a hammer put a piece of 2x4 or something up against the little lip and just bang the **** out of it <img src=/images/forums/snitz/thumbup.gif width=25 height=18 border=0>

I was having the same problem...just took the wheels off and used a rubber mallet to bang the fender lip back and up against itself to prevent the sharp edge. Unfortunately the tires are already tore up to ****. Nothing like ruining a brand new set of Toyo Proxes. <img src=/images/forums/snitz/angry.gif width=15 height=15 border=0>
