Any problems with front wheels while turning?
 
Hey everyone! Need ur feedback. My car is lowered (front slightly lower than rear on Coilovers) and I just installed a set of ZL1 10 Spoke black wheels!! 275's in front and 315's in the rear. Now im worried that with weight the rears might rub. They seem to have decent clearance but more than anything im worried that the front fender will get damaged if I am turning and hit a bump since my car is so low. Has anyone had any issues? I had the factory 21's before with no issues. car was at this same height! here are some pics! What do u guys think? Im about the same height or a tad higher than a ZL1.

Is it the rears or the fronts rubbing? If its the rear do you have a lot of stereo equipment etc. in the trunk that would drop the car slightly lower than normal?

No weight in the rear. No stereo stuff. My car is lowered. I have coilovers. Its the front that is rubbing! I raised the car from the front and set the coilovers to full stiff, its better now but when i hit a hard bump it might still hit!:noidea: prior to stiffining the coils up front the fenders would cut in to the new tires slightly when i would hit a bump hard. I realing my car and the tech set the fronts at -.5 degrees and it help just a tad bit. What is it that the ZL1 has that my SS doesnt that is making me have this issue not sure if anyone else has had something like this happen either!!
