Just wondering... why the taller tire? Also, I suggest a speedometer recalibration if you havn't done so.

Shouldn't matter.

your rims are so small to begin with, and with a narrow tire.

I'm running 235/40's on an 18x8 and i don't rub.

To lazy to find a size calculator, but i bet mine are significantly bigger.
