Rubbing Problems with new rims . Please help 4es es300 18inch
I got rims for my 4es 2002 es300 and the back rub alot when i hit bumps or anything. Also the ride has gotten worse significantly from stock setup. I have stock suspension, struts etc. Also the tires on the back are now cracking and peeling due to the rubbing
The rims i got are
Xtatik element 18
BF Goodrich G Force T/A KDW 225/45/18 all around
Any suggestions to eliminate rubbing and make the ride smooth again???

Ride quality will never be like it was with that small of a tire... unfortunately, that is something we deal with when we go to a low profile tire... you ~might~ get a slightly better ride with a more touring oriented tire, but nothing appreciable most likely...
Also, if you go to a lower profile tire, as suggested above, the ride will get even worse... need to find where it is rubbing, if, as expected, it is rubbing on the outer fender, then rolling the fender will help, if not alleviate the problem completely...
