LH wheel & tyre size
Posted 03 December 2019 - 09:21 PM
I need some assistance to point me in the right direction with my wheel and tyre choice.
I have an LH with standard height new suspension and 205/60R15 tyres fitted to wheels with 11p offset.
My problem is the tyres just clip the front edge of the Mudguards and even before I have had the chance to register it I now need to do panel repairs as the drivers side folded up on me 🤬.
The mudguards have not been modified.
What I would like to know is have people done this combo successfully before or was a change needed? I need to do a wheel alignment still but not sure if that will make a difference or if I need new tyres or something else.

What width are your rims and what is their backspace?

A wheel alignment *MAY* make a difference, depending on how much the tyre hits by, and how far out the alignment is at the moment, and how much caster / camber you dial in?
You may also gain a little by rolling the lip of the guard, and you might be able to fit a brace rod from the bumper mount down to the front corner of the guard too, just to hold it out a few mm further?
But otherwise... what Rexy said. Obviously the width and backspace of the rims is the main thing.

The rims are 7” with P11 offset which equals 4.43 inch back space.

Looks like you need a smaller tyre.
That’s about as much backspace as you can usually get away with using a 15 inch rim.
