peet,
thanks for your reply. i hope i dont need to use the devise but thanks
for the headsup. i have put about 7k miles on the car since i got it and
havent noticed anything like this until recently. i ordered the same size
standard m3 tires(bridgestone re730's) so they should fit, its just wierd
that one tire is flush with the fender and sticks out an extra inch or two
than the other, i hope this can be adjusted cause as u know, new tires arent
cheap!

: : 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??
