Default Do i need a camber kit?

Okay, so i have a 1993 honda prelude Si 4WS and its dropped 2 inches all the way around on tokicko struts and lowering springs. I just bought some XXR 002 (195/50/16) with 0 offset and they fit perfect but if i were too hit a really large bump too hard it would rub or hit on the fender a little bit and i mean JUST A LITTLE BIT!! So i wanted to know if i should buy a camber kit, or just adjust the stock camber to tuck my rims under the fender cause i only need about 1 to 1 1/2 inch to tuck them! or should i roll the fenders?

ewww 4WS, anyways, camber kits are cheap so its prob easiest. but you could also consider bending out your fenders a bit?

Personally i would just go with a widebody kit.

you would be better to roll the guards. adjust the camber to tuck the rims under??? this is be a VERY expensive venture as the car drives on the inside edge of the tyres. don't expect to see much over 20,000kms to a set of tyres if you are lucky. if it is pretty extreme camber expect about 10,000km to a set of rear tyres.

you shouldnt have bought tires with such a low offset. if you try to tuck them in with a camber you will wear down your tires insanely fast. what you should do is cut the fender or get a wide body kit or something along those lines.

Roll the fenders. To get 1" to 1 1/2 in negative camber which is what you will need you are going to need to run aro.und -2 degrees of camber. On a race track that would be great your turn in would be fast and it would corner incredible. On the street though it will chew through your tires in about 500 miles be extremely twitchy over every induation in the road and basically down right unsafe. What you should have does was not went up to a 16" tire your handling will now suffer from torque steer and wandering. You should have stayed with a 15" rim with 40mm offset that is what I run on mine and I have 225'/45-15 NT-01's on it with 5" of drop rolled fenders and ZERO rub.
