Hi,

I have a slight situation..

I just change my tires.. 215/50/17.
Stock was at 205/55/16..
I know I Should go for 215/45/17 but due to comfort.. I just bit the bullet..

Now suffering hitting the fender when I go over uneven road or bumps..

However It's only right side.. left is totally fine..

Front is less than 1 finger.
Rear is around 2 finger..
Using a sport spring and stock suspension..

What Should I do?

changing Tyre is out of the question..

Should I change back to stock spring or upgrade to adjustable?

its not your springs, nor your tyre profile and some will even tell you to roll your fenders.... [sleeping]

 

the problem lies with your rims offset. Its too positive looking how it flush with your fenders.

Mine also like that leh...only the front right (left is OK). Front about 4-5 fingers gap. Rear not sure but higher, but if loaded with passengers it'll also "sink" downwards. Go thru uneven road or humps can hear (the front right) hitting the fenders. So what I do? Just slow down at uneven road or humps lor...

my advise:

1) roll fender ($60 a pair)
2) open camber

if not, get adjustable coilovers.

1 finger gap too narrow, the cheaper way is to add spring stiffener or roll the fender to widen the broadness for the wheel to seat in.

You can either put a spring stiffener so the rubber in between the spring will stop the wheels from hitting the fender

 

Another way is to change to a good set of coilovers (ISC, HKS etc) so the suspension does not bottom out.

 

Used to be on ISC coilovers on my car and finger width between fender and wheels is only one finger but no cases of hitting fender even on uneven roads.

 

Aftermarket springs with stock suspension is a very bad combination because the aftermarket springs is shorter, it lowers the car and this stresses the stock suspension because it is made to travel in a longer rebound rate. - my 2 cents.

Yeah, good point..

But due to the dire situation, I have to find quick remedy..
This morning while in port Dickson, I went to panel beating, hoping to roll the fender but too bad, It's already rolled.. and don't helps..

I also tried to install spring cushion but don't help much..

End up, I buy new tires. Now 215/45/17, now front 1 finger.
Rear 4 fingers.

No problem even at high speed

Thats what happens when u itchy n start changing this n that on yr "new" car.

  Dun play around wh yr camber. It wil affect yr handling n car might skid.

 

Roll Fender is easy. Go construction site n borrow a sledge hammer. Use it to whack the fender out a bit so it dun touch the tire anymore.

He got plenty of $$$ so throwing it away on his

Change  then wrong so change again. Then too noisy, change again. Then too bumpy, change again, etc etc etc.

Sometimes car not properly repaired after kenna accident so whacking might make it look better n more balanced.

like I said, the root of your cause is the rim not the tyre.

The rim offset is the main reason. Not the tire profile.

Matching rim offset and tyre profile is a form of art esp you want that flush look. My current rims with 195 profile tyres is perfect, but when i changed to 205 tyres, one of the rear side will rub the fender edge. I'm looking at new rims with less offset so as to compensate the wider tyres.A good excuse to change rims!
