Default 15x9 0 offset fittment issues

Are there any other issues with rubbing on struts or other suspension components with a 225/45/15

Aren't you supposed to be running stretched-to-hell 195/50s on 15x9 0-offsets?

Nope.


As to WHY you'd do this, when a +36 offset also clears under stock bodywork, is beyond me.

If you could give us even less overall information, that'd be super.

Stock bodywork?

You want a 205/50-15 and possibly a flat roll.

With +0 he should be worrying about rubbing on the fire wall.

15x9 +36 is what you want with 225s mounted. Any lower offset and you're just making the car unnecessarily wide which means more drag and more scrub.
