I just bought some American Racing wheels. Thery are the width of the vette tires.. The weels rub just a little bit against my fender on both sides of the front tires when i turn them.. I dont know what to do.. is there a way i can make the wheel well go back and some how get the fender so it doesnt rub. cutting it is my last option. thanks..
PS the part that rubs is plastic..

15x7 is ok.

i assume this is on a 99 Camaro, correct?
how bad does it rub? just a little bit?
what size wheels? what size tires? i assume you need a little bit more backspacing- and the only way to get that is with different wheels.

you don't plan sincerity.
you have to make it up on the spot.

wanna hear about 20 years ago when i was too smart to know any better?
