lowered car making dents in the fenders?

hey guys. ive noticed ever since i lowered the car to zero gap its been rubbing alot even on slight turns. if theres a big dip or pothole the rims slam into the fender. then i noticed that both front fenders are slightly dented from what looks like impact from the wheel.

anyone else having this problem. im running 19x8.5 with roughly 30-35 offset in the front and 225/35/19. thats probably the reason but i got a dent from 19x8.5 40 offset also. that one happened a week after i lowered it.

lol anyways just ranting. anyone else have this happen to them. the dents are very slight and you can only tell from an angle

lol u guys. the camber is already negative. ima get adjustable camber so i can tweak it more.

so has this happened to the rest of you guys that are slammed with decent widths and offsets. im sure if i go 7.5 inch width with pathetic offset this problem wont even come up. i might go with less wide wheels just so i can carry passengers.

Why would you roll them if you are going to rock 215's. Unless you got 0 offset or something LOL

My fenders aren't dented up but that's something you should honestly expect when you are either running large wheels or a big drop.

I'm going to put on my 8.5 +37 Sunday.. Hopefully, like you I can get away without rolling my fenders.. since mine are 18s, shouldn't rub at all, right?

depends on the size and brand of tires, and ofcourse ... how much drop.

+1. from some other posts i've read, you don't want to stretch, right? running that setup with no stretch and a pretty big drop will warrant rolled fenders for sure

^^ I like my cutting+heating+bending technique. It works well and is easier than rolling IMO. But rolling works too...I just did the cutting/bending because I didn't have access to a roller for less than $150.

Well I'm running 27s with the stock height on the front end and they were rubbing so I took a sledge hammer to the wheel wells and the fenders and they don't hardly rub at all anymore.

I didn't even think companies made wheels that large in 5x114.3...

Honestly, that kind of fitment should be frowned upon in the industry, that's disgusting.

^No doubt. My fenders are starting to get a little mis-shapen now too. I'm a bit anal, so it's seriously bothering me. The aggressive fitment is sick, but it's pushing my fender out and fugging up the fender/door reveal. Now my front fenders look like steve's rears D:
