I picked up new wheels and tires this week but something doesn’t look quite right to me.
They are MB Old School rims in 17x8 with 4.5" backspacing. For the tires I have BFG g-force comp 2 A/S which I really like the look of too. Size is 225/50 r17.
One of my main goals was to get rid of some rubbing on the fender lip that happened when turned sharp. I thought the wheels I had on there might not have had the correct dimensions. It looked like most people were having success even with 245 wide tires so I thought the 225 would be a good choice.
I have only put one on in the front but the edge of the metal rim and the tire are sitting flush with the lip of the fender. If I go over a bump I would think it will rub. Did I order the wrong wheels or tires? 17x8 sounded pretty safe reading other posts on here. Are my fenders out of position or something going weird with my suspension geometry? I just replaced all of it. The wheels seem to fit really well on the back side and clear the upper arm mount by ~1/2 inch.
Any ideas? I don’t want to put them on and drive around and then decide they aren’t right and try to take back used tires.
