Default Issues with Bolero Wheels

Hello Experts,

Am a newbie here. I love automobiles but lack knowledge about them, which is why am here with you gurus to get myself enlightened about the Automobiles and my Bolero.

Ok So here's the Issue.

Recently I added 15" 5, spoke plati alloys with Yokohama Geos (215/75 R15). Now the problem is whenever I drive on rough roads/ ditches with more than 5 people, my tires touch the wheel arches (both front and rear), this is very irritating and annoying at times.

Few of my friends suggested that i add spacers and raise the height of the vehicle. But I'm against this as this adds more body roll to the vehicle. As this is my only vehicle at this point and I dont want to give a bumpy ride to my old parents.

Please help me out with this.

Cheers,
Rajesh

Get the suspension checked.

@akshay: I'm not using stock tires, I'm using yokohama geos, though the size is same 215/75 R15.

@Nikhil: Do you think it is really the suspension problem ? I'm asking this becasue when i had stock rims and tires in place i didn't face any issues.

Also I have to mention that the tires are popping out after switching to alloys, I'll get better pics for you guys tomorrow.

Cheers,
Rajesh

I think the offset of the wheels is wrong.

^^Correctumundo.
The offset is too negative.

I would suggest you have a body repair specialist hammer the fender(wheel arch) outwards without damaging the paint/body.
