Default Maybe it's just me...

My RP-F1's are +41 offset. Even those used to rub, until the tires eventually wore the inner fender liners away. My GD3 is lowered ~2" front, and ~1" rear. Even now, they will occasionally rub in certain situations.
My set of AutoX wheels are +38 offset. Those will rub during hard cornering, even on a smooth track. For a "Daily Driver," I personally could not live with a car that scrubs that eagerly!
I tend to agree with EXWRX. I could not recommend mounting anything with an offset more aggressive than +41.
Last week, I rode in a similarly lowered GD3 that scrubbed on nearly every bump, and during every spirited maneuver. Owning a Fit, set up like that, would drive me absolutely insane!
Maybe it's just me.
