    Fender gap

    Hello, I have a 1987 BMW 325IC, it is lowered with 205/45/16 tires, but there is a fender gap in the front. What would be the best way to get rid of that fender gap? Should I go to a 50 series tire? If I did that how much higher would my car sit?

    Coilovers or lowering springs... Making tyres bigger is not the right way to do things
