Re: Wheel fitment question - 19x9.5 et 22 with 265/30/19 on the front

You can try adding caster so it doesnt rub as much in turns, or pull the liner completely (prob not recommended though).

With et22, I think you should be ok on the inside not rubbing springs, if not, you will have to add spacer and then even more camber or raise height so you dont scrub the outside and fender liner.

Sounds like a squeaking pulley or water pump. Can you record what it sounds like when you rev it a little? I'm not really hearing vanos or rods.
