    helo! im proton persona kaki.

    anybody here has solution about rim sangkut?

    recently i had fitted 17" rim (CE28) with 215/45R17 but sad to say dat both the rear tyres sangkut when either more than 2person loaded in car or lalu bump w/o slow down (front tyre is ok, no sangkut).

    beside replacing absorber or soil spring, is there any other solution?

    Bump:
    tanz bro!

    does it reali work?

    can i juz install it at rear absorber only w/o install at front absorber? balance?

    after installed could it increase my car height instead of stiffness?

    the ride high is still balanced, the rubber damper make ur springs more stiffer...
    after saw ur car pic, i've wonder...how come that kind of high still can "sangkut"?:hmmmm:

    Bump: rear view photo!

    Bump: i had cut off upper section of da rear arch banana cover but stil sangkut tyre.
    as visual chking suspect dat kena body/mudguard!
    haiz!

    Bump:
    ya bro! standard suspension quite soft, when tyre changed 2 bigger saiz it could sangkut tyre.
    mayb 205/40R17 is best suit 4 persona.

    Bump:
