New Tyres Rub on the guards!

Hey fellas,

Got new 235/45 tyres on the car today, and those of you who've seen my car will remember that the 2nd hand tyres I got with the rims were only 225 wide.

Fastforward today, and the proper 235's i've had fitted rub on the front guards around corners, not to badly but its enough to annoy me.

Ive seen 235 tyres on lower falcons than mine (John!!!???) and I'd like to know if anyone can help me out here, whether anoyone else had experienced and remedied the problem

thanks

Re: New Tyres Rub on the guards!

flare them out. FF351 doesnt have problems with tyres scrubbing, and his is slightly lower than yours.

Re: New Tyres Rub on the guards!

dan, my guards are rolled, got it done at the same time as getting the car dropped.
cost $45 a side, panel beating place should be able to do it easy enough.

it just rolls the lip of the guard out a little to give some more clearance for the wheel whben turning.

Re: New Tyres Rub on the guards!

Sweet, Thanks Guys, looks like i'll be going to a panel-o to get the thing fixed.

John, can you see a difference on the outside? or is it the lip that goes inside the wheel arch that they roll up?

Re: New Tyres Rub on the guards!

lip on the inside

i did mine myself with a rubber mallet and lots of patience...except for the one hit when i was getting over it (and yes, cracked the paint)

had to do it on mine with 225's and just lows, i have a stupid amount of shims in the front end of my thing and its pushed the strut out just that little bit too much.
