I've got PWO 17x9 cobra R wheels all around with 275/40s in back and 255/45s in front. Today I had the wheels off and tried the 275s in the front, and they fit with no problems whatsoever. However, they were within 1/4 or 1/8 inch or so of the spindle, so I'm wondering if tire deflection under cornering would cause rubbing with the spindle. Anyone have experience on that one?
I lust got my new 17x9 cobra r's on my 94 bird w/ 255/50/17's and the rims up front rub the spindle and make a hell of a racket when cornering hard so i took out the die grinder and lets say i dont have that problem anymore
