So I'm looking into lowering springs but The wheels in looking at are and inch wider than the stock wheel with a 255 40 tire. My major concern is going to be will I rub the fender. So my question is does anyone have a similar set up and if so did you have any problems and how did you make it work?

I should have also mentioned the lowering rates of the springs I'm looking at TEIN is 1.4"dropping the front and 1.2" in the rear the Whitelines are the same and the SWIFT's are 1" all around

I ran Swifts with 255/40/18 on a +38 wheel. Didn't rub unless I had two passenger in the rear and I went over a huge speedbump.

Also I have a Swift/Bilstein setup for sale if you're interested.

I can only speak to Swifts quality and knowledge to get spring rates dialed.

Sorry for the crummy photos but this is my 16' on B8s and swifts with 18x8.5 +43 on stock tires. I plan on going 255/35 next go around. You should have room.
