s2k ap1 wheel/spacer tire help

hey guys i just picked up a set of s2k wheels for my lude. I had them put on the other day and it seems to fit fine. However the rear ap1's slightly rubs the knuckle but the fronts are fine. I did notice some understeer when the wheel was put on. im due for new tires on the fronts also. rear treads are still in great shape. My question is: how do i resolve the rubbing on the knuckle? by getting at least 10-15mm spacers? and would getting lower profile tires on the front balance out the wheel size for dd driving. Any help would be great.

I've had a set of s2k ap1 on my 5 lugging 92' prelude. When I got them, the front are 205/50/16.... Fit just fine but the rear 205/55/16 fit but rub my knuckle due to big ass tire so I got rid of 205/55/16 and went for 205/50/16. Much better with lower tires. Good luck!

Re: s2k ap1 wheel/spacer tire help

I put a set of these on my 99 Base model. The front tires fit perfectly fine, 16x6.5 +55 wearing 205/55-16. The rears required a spacer for me (16x7.5 +65, shod in 225/50-16) so I got a little 7mm (~5/16") spacer from O'Reilly that works. I haven't had any issues. You may ask why the wider tires are on the rear, well I put extended studs on the rear so they would fit. I have yet to put any on the front, otherwise I'd use the wider tires on the front. The 205s up front love to just grip the road, while the 225s in the rear love to slide around. It should, in theory, understeer like mad. But It does just the opposite, a shyt-ton of oversteer. All tires are matching (and very sticky) Dunlop SP Sport FM901s.

I got the whole set with brand new tires for $250. They are nearly mint. I wasn't passing that up, lol.
