Re: TT2's Rubbing
I have the 9.5 just on the rear. The tire size is 275/40/17. If I hit a little bump, the right side rubs on the inside wheel well. I have 9 miles on them and the inside of my wheel well looks like a mirror, nice and shiny steel.
OK. Again, your BS is correct. You can possibly use a spacer to stop the inside rub, but you'll probably have to roll the lip for the other. Yeah, there are a lot of guys who use 275/40, but some of them had to roll the lips. And there's just as many of us who couldn't fit 275/40's, like me, and we went with 255's just because of this. Hell, my 255's caused me to have to slightly roll the lip, and they barely clear inside rub.
It's just the way it is
. All of these 40yr old cars are different
. My tire dealer was prepared to exchange 275's for 255's if I had an issue, but after measuring, my gut told me to just go 255....and man was I glad I did.
