    I just bought Delsol wheels 195/60/14 for my 87 civic and the front ones don't seem to want to move. Theback wheels are fine. I can turn fine just not roll. I think they might be rubing the strut.... but not sure any suggestions?[​IMG]?

    if they have clip on wheel weights on the back they usually hit the strut



    you need some stick-ons or you can bash the brake line mounting tab down and it'll probably clear

    it's catching on a clip attached to the strut for the break cable.....
    options
    1) wheel spacers
    2) some one runs over to buy them and I just run my steelies
    3) any other sugestions????
