What size rim?

I'm running 225-60-15 and have no issues with rubbing.

In saying that, the front isn't heaps low but the rear just tucks tyre with a full tank of petrol and they've never rubbed!

Rims are 16 x 7, i was looking at 225/55/R16

My rear tyres tuck the guard all the time, and my fronts have a little negative camber. Its on ultras at the rear and supers at the front.

Factory option for Fairlane was the ftr's with 225's.

But if its real low at the front they might touch on the odd occasion.

I just got the front gaurds rolled and run a 235. Doesn't cost much to get it done. I run 265's on the back, plenty of room.
