I just recently put new rims on my lude. Now i took it out of the parking lot to get an unexpected rubbing noise so i was pissed i had just spent money puttin a new tires and rims on to have a tire rub. The other 3 tires on my car do not rub its only the driver side back tire that rubs near my mud flap. I went to a body shop dude he told me the cheapest and best thing to do first is take it to an alignment shop and they can check to see if anything is bent, but if ne1 know wut could cause this problem please i could use all the help.

Ugh, I hate the stock Si wheels.

The new ones are alright. They look big on a stock lude. If you had a lip kit or body kit, they might flow better.

Those look like 18 inch konig verdicts in black opal. I have a few more for of those same wheels I am looking to sell, I have the caps too. Broke one hitting a pothole. Oh and they are discontinued so very hard to find one.

well to each their own on the size rims they choose but on 4th gens smaller rims seem to flow better but 5spdh22 is right... maybe a lip kit would help

That rear wheel looks a little out of spec. I would def take it to a shop to have them attempt an alignment and see if they can see if anything is actually bent.

Who cares what anyone thinks of his wheels. Its not why he created this thread. I personally had those wheels and hate them. They are very weak, they bend very easily. To each his own tho. Let the haters hate lol
