Hi,
I just put the 17" RKII (smoked) et35 on a viggen with koni dampers and springs:D. But it's rubbing slightly when I make a hard turn on hit a dip and the tires are 225/45/17. I remember people were saying this setting won't rub, did I missed something? Any suggestion would be great! Thanks!

what's it rubbing on?

I can't really tell, I just know it's the front driver wheel when I turn really fast or sharp. The wheel size is the same. The new offset is 35 compare to the old rims 45 so I assume it can't be rubbing the inside, right?

Go take the wheel off and see. Might just be arch liner or something.

Will a fenders roll fix all tire rubbing issues? Thanks!

It would be nice to know exactly where the tires are rubbing.

Check out this link. It's for a convertible, but it might help:

I'm running 225's with koni's S+S, not issues at all. Not sure what my off set is tho but they are after market wheels.

Got take a look where it's rubbing!

There little to nothing to bother rolling inthe front. As you push the wheel out it will start to rub on the liner approahig lock.

It's odd that the front is doing it

I found out. Both front tires are rubbing the black plastic stuff around the lip. Can I just sand it? Thanks!
