06 ion redline with 18in bbs rims and 225/40/18 tires. I have noticed that when turning to the right i can only get about 3/4 of a turn on the wheel before the tire starts rubbing on the splash shield. I dont recall this being an issue when i first picked the car up, but i have realized i dont seem to turn hard to the right very often. On the splash guard (towards the engine compartment and towards the front of the car) there are 3 ridges that stick down and these are what the tire is hitting.
I have read several posts of people running these rims and tire size without any rub. When i checked the splash shield it seemed snug and didnt move around. It didnt look like any of the clips are missing. Any suggestions on what could cause this if the shield is in place correctly? I fear if the rubbing continues i may start destroying jars of mayo
