I'm a little on the heavy side, and so is my wife, but we never experience this much rub before. It started to be noticeable before I got the rims. I went to a mechanic for a clunking noise in my suspension area. He said that the driver side end link was toast. He reccomended that they be replaced in pairs. So he changed out the end links. This was around Nov of 2010. I first noticed the rub when I went over a speed bump and the drivers front tire rub mad nasty, first time ever. I have had 205/45/17's on the drivers side front (popped a flat at work, and that was the only tire the mexican place that would fit..), but since have gone back to 215/45/17's. The rub did seem somewhat diminished with the smaller tire up there, but it never went away comletely..
