SOURCE: I Just bought a set of 18
Yup they are too big...
The tires are scraping the wheelwell behind the front wheels.
Turn wheels to the far right and inspect the back of the left tire. It is worn. Now look at the right wheel, you will see the scraping tire on the wheelwell.
Your speedometer is also wrong. You are going FASTER than the speedometer shows.
This is called "bear bait" ...
If your speedometer is showing 35mph , then you are actually travelling 40mph or so...
You have also changed the effect of the drivetrain gear ratios. They are now "higher" ... better fuel economy ... worse muscle power transfer to wheels... and greater stress...
Hope this helps...

16" refers to the dia of the rim and tire at the point where they meet, which is called the bead. 16" rim needs 16" rubber. when you exchange a 17" rim for a 16" rim you may find a clearance issue with the braking or steering components. Also when switching from the original rims it is important to take into consideration the wheels' offset. Offset is the distance from the wheels' center of gravity to the mounting surface of the rim. This can also cause clearance issues.
