ok so i swapped out the suspension. im now running koni struts with weitec 68 mm springs. It seems like every wheel i run on the car rubs horribly. Granted i started out with 17's on the car but it wasnt even driveable because it rubbed on the fender so bad. SO i went with 14's running a 185/60/14. they clear but over small-medium bumps im still rubbing. How do you guys run 16's or any wheel for that matter on lowered cars? i know most people run coilover but the guy with shock/strut cmobs, what is the secret.

Strange, I don't have rolled fenders and I don't rub with my 195/60/14's. Are you lower than I am?
Here's a pic:
