    i had some 205 50 15 in the front and they rubbed everytime i turned. my car is dropped with neuspeed race springs so its not exactly slammed, any of you have this rubbing problem on your civics with 205 50 15's?

    my 205/50/15 azenis rubbed on the side of the fender well on the inside of the tire. It only rubbed when turning very sharp and under a load. Are you talking about rubbing the inside or the top of your well?

    edit: running same wheels as Cal has described.

    Well it depends on the drop you have.

    I have a 96 civic ls on 205/50/15 gsr wheels and a 2 inch drop also neuspeed springs and they rubed the fenders and inner wheel wels i have kummo extra supra tires on them.


    Just hammered in my inner wheel wel where it rubed and called it a day when the rubbing sound stoped. and yes a 6 inch wheel will rub. just nee to get a camber kit.
