  • Gravel Tyres Rubbing

    I have just fitted some gravel tyres size 175 65 R14 to the Poogeot... but they are rubbing on the arches and liners on the front.

    My ride height is quite high (can get a clenched fist between the top of the wheel and arch) but it still scrubs.

    Any ideas chaps? Does anyone else have this problem with gravel tyres?

    Correct off-set wheels?

      I'm using Compomotive MOs, I'm not sure what the off set is. They were fine on tarmac tyres though.

        you'll need to trim abit off the bottom of the front bumper, also i put some 8mm spacers in my rack to stop it going full lock.. but this was mainly to save the CV's i think. Mine don't rub

              Thanks for the advice guys, it turned out to be rubbing on the front bumper and arch liner. Fixed with a bit a jiggery pokery!


              Cheers!
