Tire Rub!

Hi, I have 2012 v6 mustang.
I just got lowering spring, which is eibach sportline.(they drop approximately Front 1.4in, Rear 1.7in)
After couple of days, I also got rims and tires which is GT brembo package.(tire size:255/40/19) However, when I turn my steering wheel all the way to right or left, the tire rubs inside. Therefore, I am considering to have 245/40/19. Anyone has idea if its okay with that. and would it still rub inside if I turn my steering wheel all the way?
Thank you guys!

they said tires do not get tighten all the way into hub inside. so there is chance to tires can be fall off while Im driving... I don't want that risk...

Wow... I've never heard of that. You'd think the drive wheels would fall off first, since they're always being torqued on and off. Maybe do some independent research on that one. I have some pretty big tires and never experienced any rub or anything, not even diminished turn radius...

Springs. SR's. 1.5" front and back. My wheel wells sit right above the tire, maybe a quarter inch above. The front looks even lower than the back. It is pretty much in line with the wheel well.

I think the only problem you'd have with wheel spacers up front would be that you'd have to realign the front end.

You have to do that on a slam anyways. I don't think spacers would need that, though. It evenly moves the wheels out. Not like a slam. That changes body position. I personally like my staggered set up and wouldn't want to push the tires out any further(plus its illegal in Europe). New tires would be pricey, though. Spacers would be a cheaper fix...

But tires only have 10% thread... that's why I was considering that...

I have no wheel spacers. Not personally a fan. I have 275/40/19 in the rear and 245/45/19 up front.

Well, if you almost need new tires anyway... **** it.

Hankooks are always a reliable brand. They have mid range to ultra high performance. You always see Hankook sponsoring someone at shows and races.
