Thats the prob with big wheels on small cars! :( Not happened to me yet though :) probs due to the fact never had more that 3 people in my car (including me)!!

You can sand down the pins holding the rear archs on to stop the catching the wheels and glue the arches on instead.

Do you know what offset your 17's are??

dont think i could lower it and not planning to! the only reason i had a problem is cos they are et38. even tho they are irmscher alloys. vaux just didnt take enough of my arches! should b ok now although i havent driven with 4 monsters in the back again yet! but so far i havent heard a wisper! and im well pleased with them, just trying to put a bloddy pic up!
