I have Katana Spazio's 18x7.5 5x112-120 on Kumho Supra 712's 245/40/18 and i am experiencing rubbing when i hit a dip in the road. What is incorrect in my sizing? i was told to roll fenders like on the amg's and that Tire rack rented a tool to do this. Seems extreme to me. Yes i did buy my kumho's at the tire rack. I did ask before buying if this setup would be a problem.

thanx in advance

what offset are the wheels ???? where is the tire rubbing ???? 245/40-18 seems extreme to me sine it is 25.7" tall and your car uses a 25.3" tall tire and uses a minimum wheel width of 8.0"

Offset is 35. The tire is rubbing on the outer edge of tire between face and top of tire.What size tire should I be using on the front? 235/40/18 instead of 245/40/18 maybe, is that enough of a difference? What burns my azz is that I talked to a Tire rack specialist before ordering these tires. Do I have any recourse?
