factory tires on a factory suspension should NEVER touch... if it does that means there's major suspension issues
The tires are a 215/45 which is stock, so thatís why Iím thinking that the shocks have been changed. And I canít give you a great estimate but I mean I can move my hand a little up and down but not enough.

odd 205 is stock sized for my 02 SVT, the door and manual both state they should be 205/45's

door jamb sticker should be either on the door itself or under the driver side door strike on the pillar.

and the set of tires on the car and the set of tires on rims which are the summers are both 205/45's (i just got this SVT not to long ago)

i would go snap a pic of that plate on mine but the door is currently buried between 4 feet of snow thats piled up against the door and my house wall LOL

if yours is in fact 215's then i stand corrected on that. and if its rubbing with them then i would suggest checking the shocks to see if they are bent/dented or damaged in anyway
