Tire Rubbing Problem !!

I currently am running a 305-30-19 Nitto Invo on my 360 Forged Mesh 8 wheels, with an aggressive offset (4 1/2" lip, 11" wide). I recently lowered my car on H&R Springs, and now I rub the tires every once and awhile when I hit a dip or something like that. It is not so much when I am alone, but if my wife and daughter are in the car, it does it. Currently, I would say I can just barely fit my finger between the tire and the fender...it looks lovely! I was wondering what tire I might be able to go with, that would solve my problems? Would going to a 315-25-19 do me right? I do run an 11" wide wheel, so it would not be a problem. Let me know what you guys think. Thanks for the help in advance!

-Andy

If you want a wide rear tire a 315/25 may work because of the low profile it may tuck faster. But if you really wanted to be safe i would just go with a 295 or 285

I would run a 295 on an 11" wheel, but not a 285. The problem is, Nitto does not make a 295 in the Invo.

Wouldn't a wider 315 rub even more? Yeah it may tuck faster, but if it's too wide, it may not tuck at all, and hit the fender faster.

It is almost an inch shorter though overall. It might hit, I don't know?!?!

A negative spacer is a good idea!!!

The wheels are going back to 360 Forged to be remade to a better offset. That way it will tuck nicely.

Just make sure you don't rub on the inside, then.
