The only time mine rubbed was because I hadnt secured my end links and they hung down in the way(when my swaybar was disconnected). It seemed fine to me. I think the KM2s might be fatter than my tires.

I "threw" these on today. It took a lot longer that I expected, and I hate wiring stuff. I ended up just bypassing the little relay that only lets you use them with your high beams. I mounted a toggle switch I picked up on the dash, too.

Yeah haha, i even mounted my lights in the exact same spot.

connor0770-

I didnt have stock fog lights, so i had to put down new wiring. it all came with the fog lights, but they way they want you to do it makes them only functional with your high beams, so i kinda bypassed all that and figured it out myself. i also used a differet switch. im gonna mount it today.

Here is another picture of the switch I installed. I used a 30 amp switch from Wal-mart, not the 6 amp one from Hella. I had to do this since I did not use the goofy relay they give you.
