You wouldnt be hitting the coilovers with 18x8.5s unless you offset is in the high 50s or even 60s. If you didnt shave your bumper tabs its probably that.

Check you sway bar end links. If its not the tire hitting fender lips/bumper tabs, its not related to the wheel. An 18x8.5 +32 won't come anywhere close to hitting the strut assembly.

Absolutely not, not with a +32mm offset. For reference, the stock wheels are 17x7 +55.

Stock Wheels:
suspension....143.9mm.....hub....33.9mm

Your Wheels:
suspension....139.95mm...hub....75.95mm

The measurements are how much of the wheel is on either side of the hub. The stock wheels, despite being 1.5" narrower than your wheels, sit ~4mm closer to the suspension.

In short - your wheels aren't hitting your strut assemblies. Coat the tire with tire shine, put painters tape on the inside of the fender and bumper tabs, then go for a drive. If the tire is contacting any part of the body, the tire shine will transfer onto the tape.

If not, the first thing I would check is the sway bar end links followed by the sway bar bushings. But tires rubbing down make a clunking noise, so thats why I say look further into the suspension.

So made a few BIG changes and more to come, I'm sure that some people won't like these but its not done.. In the process of working a set of rx8 fender flares and installing camber kit in rear to get it perfect, plus wheels will be redone in burning black or as close to that color as I can get and car will be repainted kandy root beer pearl.
Lowenhart LSR's matte center/gloss lip 20x9+20/20x11+30
Exhaust is gone running header/test pipe with dynomax vt muffler/side exit. (exhaust still on in pics)
Diy side and rear diffusers.








DO WORK!

Sorry I haven't posted in a while, 3 car projects, building a House and working full time kind of kills my Forum time lol. Anyway here is some updated pics of the Lambo grey, New wheels and RX-8 rear fender flares. Performance wise bumped the Zex wet to 150 shot and did a exhaust delete with a dyno-max VT muffler after the test pipe.
Bitch sounds very aggressive like a cam'd and carb'd V8 lol.

Custom quads I made from ebay mufflers and rolled stainless. ATLP reps I guess you could call them.

Its Grigio Telesto from the Lambo codes. I like it but when I painted it the wrong harnder was shipped and without a label so long story short I received a full refund for my materials from the company I ordered the hardener from and now 40% of the sides of the car are mild runs ans sags due to the paint staying wet for 8 times as long.
So I am thinking of re-repainting it Satin Mint from Hot Rod Flatz and doing the wheel centers gloss white.
