Sticker on the box from Tire Rack says 17x7.. I am getting nasty terrible rub. If I take a hairpin turn at say 7mph, I rub. If I have a friend in my lack of a back seat, I rub. If I hit a driveway lip faster than 2mph, I rub.. I just don't know to do about it... I have tossed around the idea of having my fenders rolled, but I don't even know how to go about that.
