Alignment

Was looking at my car head on the other day and noticed that my wheels seem as if they are toed out just a tad. I just kinda shook it off since it seemed like such a small difference and assumed it was normal. But then I got new tires put on and heard them rubbing last night as I was backing in! The car has not been lowered and sits on 17s with 245/45/17 tires. What do I need to fix?

Rubbed at full turn or even straight wheel??? Where does it rub??? Did you change the brand of tire??? Stock shocks,springs,n spring isos probably need replaced...and personally everytime I get new tires I get an allignment...

I'm surprised you didn't rub before the new tires..90 fenders barely fit the stock 15 wheel n tire...that's y 91-93 fenders are larger to fit the 16 and cobra 17 in 93...

The tires are a different brand and size. I just went a little wider with the front. What do you recommend for this? I want to lower it and I like my wheels.

If your just rubbing at full turn then I wouldn't be worried about...if your keeping it that way go buy some spring rubbers for $5 at AutoZone til your ready to lower it..might help with your stock springs and keep from rubbing for now...if your gonna lower it then you will rub more inside and probably the fender will rub as well...to lower it you might need a 245/40 or 225/40...
