Exclamation Just installed new 20" modulare staggered and fronts rub when turning. Help!

I just installed new modulare wheels and the fronts rub slightly on mild turns. I ordered exactly what company said would work without modifications. I took it to a shop and they said it's not hurting anything and has almost rubbed through to where it would soon stop rubbing altogether. Should I go with this or call wheel company? Do I need different offset on front wheels? Help please, these were really expensive and do t want to damage/ ruin anything. Car, wheels and tires expensive. Thanks everyone.

It's hard to help you without knowing the front wheel width, offset, and tire size/brand.

Rubbing

If your not rubbing, you are not low enough. Get underneath the car w/ the flash light and look where it's making contact. If you can live with it, then forget about it. Personally, I like it really low. GL

Most likely just rubbing lightly on the liner. Nothing really to worry about as i had a few sets of wheels that did this on slow turns.
