Wheel sizing - deathtrap?

Recommended Posts

97 626 Sedan 4cyl Auto 130000

I had 14" rims on before, just installed some 17" Hyundai Elantra's with 235/45 tyres. Apparently the offset on these are +56 (Google search) 

I've heard a few scrapes when coming to a stop. Temporary or dangerous? I know nothing, I love my 626. Cheers.

Death trap? Not really. It'll make some noises and rub. Fwd Mazda offset is generally around +40 to +50. Its +45 on 14" wheels for the GE 626. Possibly a combination of too wide tyres with slightly different offset - max I'd go for is 225 myself. Jack it up and take a wheel off to see where its rubbing.
