    Stock ride height car?

    Pull the wheel and see where the rub is (unless you can get your head under there with a flashlight).

    We don't know anything, other than your tire is scraping. We don't know what vehicle, we don't know what wheel/tire combo you're running.

    All those things are pertinent to getting a solution to your problem.

    Did this start after installing new tires? What is your back spacing on the wheel?

    295 is a pretty big tire on the front, my local tire idiots installed my 295 from the rear on the front and the 265 on the rear. The front right scraped and I went back right away after discovering the issue.

    If you have a 295/45/20 on the front, you are going to scrape. Spaced wheels with 275/40/20's will scrape the outside of the tire on the fender liner....even at stock ride height.

    If it IS a 295/45, that's almost 2" taller and 2" wider than stock. I'm actually shocked it cleared the strut/ knuckle bolt
