Well thats just super... lol. Hopefully removing the bumper tab will solve my issue or doing a combination of that and 35 aspect ratio vs 40. I really don't want to spend the money (now) on a set of coil overs or konis to control the dampen rate.

Its not in a turn but when I go over any halfway decent sized bump. I think its hitting the tab that holds the bumper in the wheel well. I already rolled the fenders and am only lowered on swift springs. Any advise here?

I ordered a quick release so I can remove the tab and am about to order some 35 aspect ratio tires. But if someone has words of wisdom i'm all ears.
I'm running a 10 wide up front with +18 offset. Fitment is absolutely spot on with -2 camber. What is your camber setup up front?

You would need to get more camber in front, on stock height there is no issues, but lowered you will need -3, -2.5 if fender rolled. I am lowered and don't have any issues with -2.7 front camber and around an inch gap between tire and fender.

With SPL FUCA I am able to get -3.2 and I am lowered an inch. I have no issues running 18x10.5 +30 or +15 and 275 35 tires. I also run a 18x11 +18 with a 315 30 tire and no problems so far.

Now I am on -3.2 with 285/30/18, not a tall tire so no issues, I used it with 275/40/18 and -2.7 without issues, there was a little rub when I turn too hard at track, happened twice only. With 275/35/18 there shouldn't be any problem at all even without any negative camber.

275 35 18 is definitely fine, 285 35 18 works too

Heck I ran 295 35 19 and that rubbed

Fixed the issue! The rubbing was on the tab where the bumper was mounted just underneath the head light. I used a quick release (push style vs band) and removed the tab.

Rubbing is completely gone and i didn't need to mess with camber or go to a different aspect ratio on tires. So you can use a +15 10.5 wheel if you want to do quite a few other things.

Which 19x 10 wheels do you have and what is the offset?

Sorry if it was discussed before- did anyone try rear 18x9 wheels in the front?
I use stock 18" with 245/40 and 275/35.
