agreassive offset rubbing issues?

I'm rubbing on my front fenders and it's tearing away the paint. Not complaining about the rubbing but what do you guys do when there is bare metal on the inside of the fender?
Just let it rust and repaint when it is too bad?:)
I'm on 18x9.5 +30 with a 215/35 tire

Yep, that'll do it.

I'm assuming that you are lowered and your fenders are at least rolled too? Have you thought about pulling them to give extra clearance? I'd be painting BEFORE it rusts personally, but if you do not fix the rubbing issue then it'll just wear through again though.

I'm just going to come out and say it, if you are only running a 215 tire then why not use a 7-7.5in wheel for which it is intended, or are you after the herrafrush look?

Re: agreassive offset rubbing issues?

Thanks! But i have just repainted the car. I need that much stretch to fit my wheels, the fenders are rolled but i dont want to pull it because i want as much poke as i can get... so then i just have to add spacers. Guess you could say i want the hellaflush look.

Re: agreassive offset rubbing issues?

Your car was freshly painted, you don't want to fix the rub, and your gonna let the fenders rust before you repaint????? I just slapped my own face, but sounds like your probably 16, 17 years old, and have not learned how valuable pennies are yet.... Maybe you never had to, or never will have to. Sad to hear........

Re: agreassive offset rubbing issues?

^^ Ouch, harsh... but probably fair.

But yeah, seems like the OP is tackling this the wrong way. Spacers will NOT fix the problem, they will decrease the offset (make it more negative) and make the wheels rub even worse. They are using a wheel which pokes out nearly 2.5" more than stock, that'll never work. I'm surprised there is no rubbing on the knuckle arm too. If they do not want to modify the fenders any more I would suggest getting a more appropriate sized set of wheels.

Check out this site for ideas on what can be achieved on a Prelude RIMTUCK.com - Search Results - Thumbnails

BTW, putting a 215 tire on a 9.5" rim gives NO performance benefit over putting the same tire on a 7" rim since the contact patch with the road is the same. Sure, running a small amount of stretch might possibly reduce sidewall flex under severe cornering loads, but with that much there is a big danger of the tire popping off the bead. Hope the OP is running some mad high pressures.

Re: agreassive offset rubbing issues?

^^ it's doubtful aleks had performance in mind when stretching the tires.

It's all about that cool 'slammed n crammed' thing these days.

Re: agreassive offset rubbing issues?

I cannot say that I understand the idea of letting the paint wear and then repainting again. If I had just repainted my car I would park a mile and a half from the store just to ensure that I wouldn't have to worry about dings.

The cheaper option here is by far buying the 7 in rims because of the amount of money over time that will be spent in repainting.

Re: agreassive offset rubbing issues?

Have you tried wheels that fit the car?
