I rub like crazy right now due to soft FM springs. I dont rub at all at full lock from what I can tell. NB's shouldnt have any problems.

Woops. That was to the OP, who said "Too much stretch" and "need a light fender roll for peace of mind."

Mine rub on the rim lip and the springs at full lock. They must have clearanced themselves cause I dont hear **** now.

This is almost at full lock. Notice the missing paint on the spring and wheel lip.

Looks like Koni yellows with 2.5" springs. Can't get much smaller in terms of springs, time for some wheel spacers if you're overly concerned.
