Why do you have a 225? What's the wheel offset?

Are they stock wheels? If so you'll be fine.

Yeah, you'll have plenty of room. I'm running 275/40/20 all the way around and I'm lowered way more than an inch and a half.

If that's in response to Stangman asking about offset, offset doesn't mean whether they are staggered between front and back. It's the measurement of how far the mounting hub of the wheel is from the center of the wheel if you look at it as a cross section. As for your main question, do you have a picture at more of an angle? We can't really judge it by looking at them straight on in that one photo. Also, have you looked at getting an adjustable panhard bar to go with the springs? Lowering your car will push the axle towards the driver side. If you're already worried about clearance then you'll definitely want to think about getting one to pull the axle back to center.

Heres a better picture. I have 20" wheels but just afraid to lower it now because I feel like it might rub, I still want to see it installed but I'm just a little nervous. Lol I like all the answers so far.

Youre not giving the info we need...

Offset? Width of the wheel? I understand you may not know this but you cant post a question like this without all the info. There are a lot of variables. Based on your tire size Im going to say you have an 8.5" wide wheel. Offset Im guessing 40-45ish. Based on that youre fine.

That picture still doesn't help. I meant more of an angle as in one taken almost from the back or front of the vehicle to see if they are cutting it close or stick out at all.

Sent from the future.

Im running 275/35/20's on a 10" rim. Im lowered on Eibach Pro kit, so around an inch, and Im not even close to rubbing. As a matter of fact Im looking for some spacers to push it out even more.Youre going to be fine.

Holy wheelgap LOL, Ditch those 225's and get some meat. I have no idea why a tire shop would sell you a 225/30, you could easily fit a 35-40 sidewall with a 225. you have like 3-4" of wheelgap it looks like. you'll be more than fine with a drop

I just put on the 2010 GT premium wheels. They're the 19s with 245/45/19s and the rim is a 50mm offset. And on full lock left or right it's rubbing. Weird.
