Rear tires rubbing issue


I just bought some 15x8 0 offset rims with 195-50-15 tires and the back keeps rubbing and chomping away on my tires :( I was thinking maybe fender rolling might help or stiffer springs? I just need some advice... plus it's weird to me that the back is wider then the front.

The wheel might be the wrong offset and they have moved the tire too far out and that might be one of the reasons the lip is catching the tire.

You can roll the fender and it will help. Are you're rear shocks in good health?

True, I'll try swap them around to see. My shocks are ok, What camber kits can I use?

Get some wheels with an offset that is more ideal.

Stiffer springs are just a band-aid for your issues...

Finally traded wheels with my friend and it sits pretty nice to me, offset is much better. https://www.instagram.com/p/BSCw30MDxgn/ Sorry I don't know how to post a pic through my phone. :doh:
