Thanks for visiting Just Answer,
What size tire are you using?
Customer: replied 7 years ago.


Expert:  Tim West replied 7 years ago.
That tire is too big. You can either trim away the inside of the fender, or go with a smaller size tire.
A good side for this car would be a 225/45/17 or 235/40/17
Stock came with I think a 195/60/15
