Post subject: How much tire rub is acceptable?

Just had my new rims and tires installed and I have a small amount of rubbing. I was told this setup shouldn't rub. How much is acceptable? Any fixes?

No rub is acceptable lol, fix is a fender roll depending on how badly you rub. I rub in the front but only on full steering lock.

No such thing as "acceptable tire rub" unless you're a Stanceworks member.

100% rub.....No really no rub should happen, ever. Why would you purposely want to drive around losing tire tread on purpose.

Post subject: Re: How much tire rub is acceptable?

I think the previous replies are missing the point. The question should be:

How much tire rub is acceptable TO YOU?!

If you say, a little rub here and there when going over speedbumps or big dips, then it should be fine, to you! If you say, no rub at all regardless of dip or bump, then a fender roll is required.

To each their own. I only rub on speed bumps or aggressive launch at a light. To me that is acceptable and unacceptable, I accept it now because I don't have the time or funds to take it to my body shop guy to get the fenders rolled.

When I hit a speed bump or a the big dip on the road by my house it get a quick rub. I hope I don't regret getting the 19s over the 18s!

So sorry for the noob questions...but what is getting the fenders rolled?

Also, here's my stock vs. new

Did a quick search...from where I'm rubbing, rolling the fenders should be a solution. We can look at them at the meet tomorrow. But any recommended places to get it done?

Wheel diameter has nothing to do with it. You increased the width and lowered the offset. That's your problem. No wheels/tires are worth modifying the car for, in my opinion.

I just noticed that too as the 18s are almost exactly the same size (but less sidewall on the tire). But here's the thing...the 18s are a standard option (same width as the 19s). So maybe the rubbing is a sign of some other suspension issue?

Your lower offset with wider rims is like double the effect of getting wider, larger rims.

The 18x8 are higher offset.

I dont care about the rubbing, I want to see what wheels you got.

P.S. Don't listen to "get off my lawn" Chris, you do what you think looks good. I personally like a nice flush wheel with minimal wheel gap. Fender rolling is common place in any aftermarket wheel situation when you want to run a)wider tires
b)lower offset wheels
c)any suspension mods that lower your car
d)list can go on



Fender rolling simple "rolls" the fender edge flush or smooth with the body and gives you more clearance.
