Well if you dont load up the car you really wont know if it touches or not.It's only on load that it will touch up the wheel arches.

Also depends on the offset of the alloys being used.

thats why i said "apparently" he hasnt faced any problems.
it all depends on how you drive,where you drive,and how many people sit in the car while you drive.
to be on the safer side,go for 155/65r13 on 5j rims.
