Cooper STT 265 70 17 rubbing with 2" lift on WK
 
Hi,

Just had my WK lifted on Thursday/Friday with new Bilstein shocks and Cooper STT 265 70 17's. Trouble is now they're rubbing - I spotted the adjuster bolts at the top control arm and hacksaw fixed those but on full lock the fronts are rubbing on the lower sway bar (torsion?) and the inside edge of wheel arch. Anyone else experience this? Would 5mm spacers fix the problem - still have the stock rims...

Thanks,

Madmtnbiker

OMFG, i cant wait to get my stock size Cooper STTs on my WK. I loved them when i had my XJ on 35s. I have had many different tires but they are the best IMHO. Please post up some pics for me to drool over.
