I did when I ran coilovers and stock alignment at Laguna Seca. Rubbed the inner liners bad (I had it pretty low) and also the fenders some (had small cuts on the tire). I didn't have time to roll the fenders before the event and paid the price during my last session. I went through turn 6, bottomed out and heard a loud rub/scrape noise in the front. Told my passenger "that didn't sound good". Got into the pits and left front fender lip was pulled straight down. Ugly!

Ouch! That is my concern. I'm installing some V-maxx coilovers and stock alignment. I will probably just stick with a 15x7 with a 205/50 tire
