Tire rubbing, help!
 
Today I bought some nitto motivo's for my 1999 boxster. I bought 225/50zr17's for the front and I am currently running the the 2000s rims. The tire is rubbing on my suspension. Has anyone else had this issue? if so what did you do to fix it? Or does anyone have any idea how to? I dont want to have to drop to a 205 because I just bought these tires today and everything said that they would fit, but they dont. Any help is appreciated

Well,if do not want to replace the tires you can get some spacers to bring out the wheel to clear. You wouldn't need much. Maybe 5 mm. Hope that heps

Do not buy these spacers!
Not the right fit for our cars.
I have OEM spacers.
