Just got these put on today. Moved my new 245 Falkens to the front, and slapped the 275 BFGoodrichs on the back. These tires look wide as ****.

I tried to get a good pic but it's tough to show the treads/width because of the snow.

Also, the drivers side wheel well is now cutting into the edge of the tire going up steep right turns. Really not happy about this since they're brand new. The rear driver side does sit lower then the passenger side, but not always, it seems to be intermittent. Never been able to figure out what the problem was. Think I'm going to bring it over to my friends house so we can jack it up in his garage and take a look at the springs, control arms, and torque boxes.

Worst case scenario, I can just take the spacers out for now, so the wheels don't sit flush with the wells.

That really sucks. I hate seeing damage to brand new tires. I know this isnt a solution to the problem but did you roll the fender lips?
