    Thanks. Are these bump stops the same as what people call "rubber lifters?"

    mukhang di naman malalim, gamitan mo ng solvent cement (neltex) para di matastas rubber

    If by rubber lifters you mean the ones that go in between the spring perch and the spring, no.

    This is an example:



    Some bump stops are located outside the strut assembly.

    But a good set up should still rarely hit the bump stops. Best go with the lowering springs that were designed for your car with the right tire size to match.

    I'm currently on 195/55/15. My friend suggested that I change to smaller tires to lessen the rubbing.
    Now I'm thinking of downsizing the front tires to 185/45/15. Front tires only since I find no problems with the rear tires at the moment (and budget concerns haha).
    Is this a good idea? Would I encounter problems if I push through with this?

    Edit:
    After doing some searches I don't think 185/45/15 tires exist lol. Maybe I'll go with 195/45/15.
    What do you guys recommend? Thanks
    may i inquire, what is your car, and by how much was it lowered?

    do the tires rub when turning the steering wheel to opposite extremes?

    It's a 1997 civic. It was lowered by I would say... 2.5 - 3 inches.
    Yes, it does the rubbing sound when i'm making a sharp turn.

    It's been almost a month now I think since I lowered the car. I see no signs of damage on the tires so far so there's that at least.

    Wow that is a huge drop. Did you just get lowering springs? Kits are always better as the dampers, bump stops etc are all compatible with the springs.

    Kung lowering springs lang on stock shocks, di oobra yun. The worse kung gumamit ng putol springs.

    Best to go with a lowering kit (shocks, springs, etc.) that matches properly to the car. Dami nyan for the Civic EK.

    Guys, hingi sana ako ng recommendation on tire brand. Need ko magpalit ng 4 tires, ito yung size 205/60/R16, around 4K-5K budget per tire. Ayoko ng made in china na tire. Kung may alam din kayo store na nag-ke-carry ng tire size na yan pa-banggit na rin ng name ng store. Thanks.

    try the yokohama outlet near the dulo of aurora blvd in pasay city, in front of kia, near the end of that road.
    i can't give you the number, but i am confident it is in google. "yokohama tires".
