I just got new tires on my 15" stock SE rims... i upgraded from 195/60 to 205/65.... the 205 actually scrape the wheel liner or SOMETHING when it is turned about 3/4 or more to each direction.... does this mean when i get my 17"s i cant get 215/45 but instead id have to get 205/40??? damnit damnit!!

Those 205/65's are way taller than than the stock 195/60's. 205/55 or 205/60 would have been the way to go. 195/60's are about 117 mm tall, the 205/65's are about 133 mm tall.

Are you trying tocheat, and put less miles on your car???
Why the hel_l else would you put such high-profile, performance robbing tires on?

Even a 205/55 on certain tires will rub at full lock. those tires are just WAAAAAY too tall.

With the Spec-V we got 215 width and that's why our steering rack is "lock" to avoid rubbing the tires to the fender. I don't know if SE rack can be lock also to avoid your problem...

Our turning radius suck because of this too :mad:
