It looks like the vendor sent the incorrect offset.

It does at that.

What are the specs on these wheels? Or, what did you order?


I ordered them from a reputable tire franchise that contacted the wheel manufacturer for correct sizing. I am waiting to hear back if the correct/recommended size was sent.
To me, it seems like the wheel has the wrong offset. Even if I had a smaller width tire, I don’t see this not rubbing after I lower it.
It’s a 10.5” wheel with either 15 or 20 offset. Those are the only offsets available.

I've found many rims for these cars have to little offset to tuck the rims enough to not rub... :(

It may also be that a 10.5" wheel is just a tad bit too wide.

I suspect it is a combination of the wheel width and offset that is causing this.

They ordered 275/40’s to replace the 295/40’s. I checked the offset when the wheel was off and it was 15. The wheel manufacturer offered to machine them down but, I checked for clearance on the inside of the wheel and it was already very close to suspension components.
Here are the 275/40 tires mounted:

275/40R20's fit fine on my stock 9" wide SRT wheels and I'm lowered so I don't think it's the tires.

Offset on a stock 9x20 wheel on your car is +20mm so I think it's the 5mm offset difference plus the 1.5" wheel width difference.

Here is a picture of the inside clearance.


The wheel was very close to that bar.
