I cant believe that these tires arent rubbing. They are huge and i mean they have to be within 1mm of the fenders with hard turning.

I'm running the same 235-40/17 tires... and I have some issues with rubbing when hitting a incline at an angle or bit *** bumps in the road... but the grip is worth it

Now you need to take the wheels off and paint your can calipers/rotor hats black.....they're detracing frmo the wheels.
