you will regret it if ya dont, the fronts brush the inner arches on full lock but only once in a blue moon, its strange it does it once then dont do it for months so i dont count that as scrubbing, just unbolt the rear plastic arched get some tiger seal and bond them back on thats all ya need, i have TOYO tyres if that helps cos every tyre has a different profile and you get better clearance with some than you do with others

sound a bit like me i wrote 1 car off and had 3 minor accidents not my fault

i wrote my car off a classic way

i hit a red phone box head on out side my house and folded my car in half
it wasnt my fault it was a lad with no tax insurance or mot overtaking me as i turned to go in drive it put me in hospital for night but got my moneys worth out of him in the end
