Enkei RS05RR rims tire size recommendation.

whats up guys. I currently have Enkei RS05RR 18x9.5 / 5x114.3 / +22 (Face M) rims on my Evo X (got this especific one because it clears the brembos). I have looked up forums and see that people use 265/35/18 for these rims so i went with that and it fits perfect. Issue Iím having is that i have tire letterings in my tires and due to them being meatier tires the tires seem to rub against the back of the fender lining and it has messed up my tire lettering, does anyone know another size tires that may work with these rimís specs. Thank you.

Use a heat gun to warm the fender liner up, and push it back out of the way.

I have 18 x 9.5 +22, but went with cheap Rotas.

The 4 variables in this....and people rarely state more than 2 are:

1. Suspension, stock or otherwise.
2. Alignment, stock or crazy Civic look.
3. Tire size.
4. Tire brand. Check out the MFG stats. Section width varies between companies and models. Milimeters matter here.

I've had 275/35 since 2013. First on Dunlop Direzza II, and now on P-Zero Runflats. Only notice rear rub on heavy bumps with a big load in the trunk. Only hit front inner fenders at full lock for the first 3 months. Now the clearance is rubbed in by the tires. Zero other issues. Key is that I have stock suspension and alignment.

Its a great set-up.

Cool, i have BC racing suspension and itís lowered just to cover the wheel gaps. The reason the tires rub against the fender liner is because of the meaty tires which are 265/35/18. Someone suggested to heat up the fender liners and push them in so i will try that.
