Default Driver side charge piping

Due to the fact that I wish to retain AC as well as PS, I've decided that routing my piping through the fender is the best route. However, I'm concerned of possible rubbing when turning full lock as my miata is quite low (1cm clearance tire-fender at full lock) . Anyone have experience with this? Running 15x8 0 offset

Do you mean like this?

If so, just keep it inside of the swaybar and the wheel will rub on the sway bar before it can rub on the charge pipe, theoretically. My 15x9 +36 setup with 225 doesnt rub on this. I'm really really hoping that the 15x10 275 setup doesnt.

With your stupid 0 offset it shouldn't be a problem, it pushes the wheel away quite a bit from anything it'll rub. Why you want creature comforts on such a non-DD friendly car is beyond me though.

Leafy I meant going up and straight through the fender/engine bay.
