With no drop what size tires you running 215/45 seems to be popular size in this situaton but has anyone done a 225/45 with no rubbing issues?? or better yet anybody runnin a 215 could you possibly check your front wheel well with the tires cranked to the left or right and tell me what kinda clearance you have by the inner fender liner thanks in advance.

Re: owners of 17's with no drop

I rolled on my 215/45's with no drop while I was waiting for my coilovers to come in (months). I never had any issues with rubbing ever, and I put my car through its paces. Now my car (04) is slammed with less than a 1 finger gap all the way around and I still have no issues except scrapping the bottom on bigger speed bumps. As far as tires rubbing, no problems. Get a drop though, **** looks like a monster truck with no drop and 17"s on.
