some body help me

So i got a 98gt droped and it has 17" wit 245/45 and when i crank the wheel all the way i hear a rubbing/grindin noise im almost certain that its the tires hittin the wheel well. so would go a size smaller on the tire would it fix the problem?

Don't cut the wheel all the way man...solve your problem. I was running 275's on the front of my last car with it lowered almost 2 inches...just don't turn full lock.

Re: some body help me

interesting to say the least.

how low is the car, what lowering kit, c/c plates, etc. does it all have?

i have 275/35 on 17's up front with H&R race springs, Koni Yellows, no front iso's and no c/c plates (to my knowledge, im pretty sure id notice them!) and no rubbing at full lock.
