    Thanks,Sno.
    The tires don't seem to stick out too far from that angle.
    Like you said,she has 265/70-17s which according to Discount Tire's tire calculator is .52" more sidewall height and a bigger overall diameter of 1.05 and circumferance 3.27 than my stock 265/65-17s.
    Maybe I won't need any trimming or have to take off the mudflaps.I really wish I knew before buying these wheels.:eek:

    Thanks :D. You are correct.

    I answered your PM with the pic that is also in the above thread, post #14. I'm thinking it sticks out maybe an inch, I don't think it is so much that you would get a ticket or anything. Your size will be about 1" smaller than mine, I'm pretty sure there wouldn't be any rubbing. I should take a pic of the area it is rubbing, it is a very small corner on the inner edge of the bottom of the fender and it only rubs on full turns. I have no problems with the rear edge rubbing, so I think your mud flaps would be fine. Hope this helps. I'll try to remember to get some pics when I'm not working and it is light out ;).
