grind the bolts down mate that hold your arch on, and if its still doing it, grind some of the plastic away.

Think you'll be better bonding the arches on and get rid of the bolts completely

Is it catching the metal lip behind the plastic? If thats the case then you need to get the metal grinded down so you wheels no longer catch.

be careful if ur pullin the metal bit out aswell...can make the plastic arch not sit flush....i cut mine away at the top of the arch no buffin lowered 90mm at the back altho they're speedlines so perfect offset

tire choice can effect it...i had uniroyals on when it was lowered 60mm and it buffed like mad.....now got a tire called stunner on...maybe not eagle f1's but cheap and the only tire i can find that does not rub the arches even when i dropped it to 90mm
