Will my tires rub?

Post by jshmnghm on Tue Feb 03, 2009 8:25 pm

Putting 2 1/2 inch dropped spindles on a 70 beetle with stock beam, wheels and tires. Will go at least one click in the rear also. Any rubbing issues with this setup?

In the front it depends on tire size. The 2 1/2 drop spindles are gonna offset the wheels about a half inch or so. I run a 155-60 on front and mine don't. If you 135 up to 155 you should be ok.

Porsche 914 wheels and early Rivieras tuck under the car enough to eliminate the rubbing.
