Whats up guys, first off id like to give alot of props to edge racing and tirerack for the quick shipping and awsome product service....

i recently bought the flik 17x8 +35 and matched them up with some bridgestone re-05 235 45 r17 tires, edge racing supplied me with the hub rings and lugs (which is awsome by the way), my question is i mounted my first wheel in the rear an noticed that the tire was very very close to my coilover top adjustment ring, would this be a problem in my driving??? i was thinking if i just raise the car up a little bit that it would give me some more clearence and get the adj ring away for the tire, but instead of raising the car up more could i just tighten the spring? the tire spins fully and there no rubbing sound right now there about 1/4 inch of space and if a raise to where the tire matchs the thread maybe about 1/2 to 3/4 i didnt even try the fronts yet caus it got to late in the day and i was tired from mounting these monsters

thanks for the help
jon

1/4" is a little less than I'd want due to tire deflection when cornering. Just to be safe raise it up until you can get a finger between the tire and the strut.
