Need help with Carlyle racing 15" setup. Rubbing!!

I have a 2010 Camaro with Pfadt lowering springs, Carlyle racing 15" wheel kit, 15" Welds from Carlyle racing, and ET Street R Bias 28X11.50-15LT. This is my end result. Everything fits and clears fine with the suspension unloaded. Is it because I am lowered?

Not sure. put an 3/16 wheel spacer on and that should give you enough room. you will have to put on longer wheel studs. I have carlyles 15 inch kit and that is what I do.

I have carlyle kit and 15" welds. Im lowered 1.25" on Pfadt springs. I run a 275 60 with no issues. I tried a 325 50 and it hit the lower control arm. The 275 is ~10" wide and the 325 is ~ 11" wide. I would say your tires are too wide.

The R bias 28x11.50-15LT is only 8.8 wide. not sure what is wrong. with the 3/16 spacer I run a hoosier 29x10.5W slick which is 11 inches wide with no problems. have done 1.41 60 foots and 9.56@144mph in the 1/4 mile.

Good info. After looking closely at pic it looks like the actual wheel is hitting the LCA.

What do you mean by lowered? You are lower than stock?

I am running MC kit + Welds or Race Stars in the back. Both clear no problem.

I'll look for a good pic, but right now I have my car pretty low in back.

Measure from the center of the rear fender lip to the ground... 29 inches?

I will have to measure when I get a chance. By lowered I mean I am on Pfadt lowering springs.

I will also call Carlyle when I get a chance. I was just seeing if anybody else was having the same issue or not.

Another question. Where are you guys placing your wheel weights?

I placed mine on the inside side of the wheel. I had them on the outside side of the wheel and they hit the calipers.

I will take some measurements tonight and we will see how low compared to others. Carlyle said I was the first to have an issue he thinks I am too low as well. I am going to send him more pics when I get a chance. I am in the process of packing and getting ready to move so time is limited.
