Hello I have a Volvo S70 2.5 10V and it came with some 15 inch Antlia alloys and Ive recently put some 16 inch T5 alloys in it. When I turn to full lock you can hear the tyre slightly touching the wheel arch liner. Id like to know if I need a different arch liner for the different wheels.
Thanks

Replace the steering lock stops, yours are probably worn down.

The problem only occurred when I put the wheels on. I've had the car a few weeks and when the original wheels were on it was fine.

I'd just stick some 3mm spacers on the offset will be different from your other wheels

Have the T5 alloys got the correct tyre size on?
