Don't know if this will help you, but I had the same thing happen - however it was after I installed new tires. I ordered Yokohama's in a plus size config, that theoretically gave the same dimension but it rubbed - and only on the passenger rear side. One thing you can do with your new tires, is if you upsize to a bigger wheel or even to make bigger tires on 17's fit, borrow the lip rolling machine from Tire Rack. It is free, but you need to give them a credid card for deposit.


: i have noticed recently that the passenger side rear tire rubs against the fender lip when i hit bumps or go hard on the gas. i had it on a lift and nothing looks bent but that particular tire sits out an extra inch or two ulike the opposite tire. it is flush w/the car whereas the opposite wheel is well tucked under the fender. i just ordered new tires and am getting a four wheel alignment on the car. should this fix the problem or does something else have to be done as well??
