I know it has prob been asked before but I can't find any information on it by searching soooo. I would like to put a set of Tein S-techs on my 06 hatch and was woundering, will I experience rubbing with stock rims with 225 45/r17s on? Any information would really be appreciated.

S-techs drop A LOT in the front. I'm also pretty sure a hatch drops more than a sedan. Dunno if you'll rub or not because I guess you have the ideal offset.

BTW, how did you get 225s to fit the stock rims? yeesh

Magic! really though I asked discount for 215's and they said it wouldn't give the protection from curbs that I wanted so I said whatever do what you want. Well they did and I am quite happy. They actually look like the tires that should have been on there in the first place.

You should not have much of a problem with rubbing. I am running a Tein Basic Coilover set up on a 04 HB and i am running 225's and i dont have no rubbing except for hitting bumps and the ride bounces but thats about all..
