Default Fender rub all around on 205/50/16 16x7 40mm offset

I just picked these wheels/tires up and im rubin like crazy....i gott about 1-2 finger gap all around, id figure id be able to tuck these tires...

if i get my fenders rolled, any chance i could tuck in the rear?
If i get 205/40/16 is it possible the tires wouldnt fold out over the wheel as much?

your best bet is to go down one or two... like 205/45 or even 205/40's would be better. just dont slam into potholes fast....that **** ***** you up haha

The 205/40/16 tire would just have a shorter sidewall. You would have to go with 195/xx/16 if you don't want the tire to "Fold out" as much.

true...i just figured that the sidewall was so big that it flared out a little....im gonna try and find some cheap 205/40s and see if that helps any...

is this a normal problem....?

The tire rubs because it's to tall (50 series) for a 16" wheel on a Honda. A 205/50 is ok on a 15"wheel but you shouldn't go above a (205) 45 series on a 16" wheel, (205) 40 series on a 17" and (215) 35 series on an 18".

Also if your car still has those factory rubber inner lip covers on it, pull them off as the tires are prone to rubbing on them. Removing them will give you some aditional clearance.
