I need some serious advice. I bought some 225/40/18 Goodyear Eagle F1's Allseasons for my Pegs and I love em to death. Problem is they are rubbing like mad. The front's seem ok, they only rub a little on lock to lock. I was expecting that, and that can be avoided. The back however is not looking so good. I just got back from a road trip to find a 2 inch piece missing from the right rear tire! The left is only rubbing on the inside; the tire looks ok but it is tearing up my wheel well. The right is worse, for some reason the outside of the tire is making crazy amounts of contact with the fender and getting beat to stuff. What should I do?<p>I can't really afford new tires and am looking for a different solution. The car has Bilsteins right now, and some type of aftermarket spring (all from the PO). Should I swap those out, and what should I get that will fix this? Can I roll the fenders or have a shop roll them, cause I really don't even know what rolling fenders means?<p>Any other solutions?<p>Any help would be much appreciated. Thanks.

You're running a wheel with the wrong offset

Re: (db130)

Thanks for the link. I'm talking to a body shop about rolling the fenders right now. Will probably set me back about $120

Re: (Sven77)

How are you going to roll the fenders?<br>They have a plastic inner fender liner, which is not "rollable"
