That was a very common problem in the S60 R cars. The only solution is to put the original equipment tires back on. I mean the same manufacturer and design. I believe they were pirelli tires (spelling sorry) as to the design, PZero's I think

Wheel rubbing frame when turning

On the bottom control arm you will find a block that a bolt from the back of the axle hits when on full lock. To do what you want extend this bolt out until the tyre does not hit the frame Adjust on both sides. Be aware that this will increase the turning circle of the vehicle. OF course with all this lift you will have extra problems with cv/ u joint angles and failures and you will suffer from excessive fuel consumption just to drive the big tyres But these options that you want have not been properly thought through as it involves unsafe vehicle modifications which will, bring you to the attention of the law enforcement agencies

Will 235/70R/15 tires fit on a 91 ford taurus?

Thats a tall tire but it depends on the size tire/rims that are on it. I have a 91 taurus that has 14 inch rims, the only draw back on taller tires are the fender wells, make sure the tires do not rub the fenders. especially the front, if you put them on, turn the front wheels to the left, then check to feel or see that they do not rub. then turn wheels to the right and recheck for clearance. good luck, if the fit and clear.

Noise when turning the wheel fully to the left or right.sounds like grinding.

check the inside of the wheel to see if it rubs on tie-rod ends and the tires for wear and tear. also verify what size of tires are recommended, too big the tires will rub on the inside of the fender

Tire ? what are the max height for this van it has 225/75r 16 now?

would be un able to give u a correct answer-if keeping a 16 rim than turn ur wheel all the way to left and measure the clearance from tire to frame than turn all the way to the right and measure which ever is smaller or if barely touching that is ur max size the 225 is the width in metric[mm] the 75 is the sidewall ratio and the 16 is rim size if u go up in size u have to worry about turn radius and what might the tire rub on so using the stock size which most of the time is close to max using stock rims-- u check and measure than if there is room u can add the measurement to width and or side ratio

I have the correct size tires on my 2004 S60R,

s60r not only has horrible turning radius but also has rubbing. Car has been poorly designed by Volvo. They even installed metal plate that your rub on when turning hard. Two ways to stop the rubbing is.install 5mm spacers or add washers on steering stops. Please visit and R forum there for future support.

Snow tire size for 2004 Honda Odyssey?

Not a good idea at all! The speedo will be out, but that's the least of your worries. It will become harder to accelerate and will make the transmission and engine work harder. You will have reduced braking efficiency and more rapid wear as the brake system was not designed to deal with the higher mechanical advantage of a taller tire. The vehicle will not handle as well, besides having a taller sidewall and center of gravity, the suspensions scrub radius will change and it will make it feel twitchy to drive. Your gas mileage will suffer as the engine and trans were not designed around this tire diameter. The larger tire will have a higher rolling resistance and weigh more as well.
If anything, for a snow tire, you really need a skinnier tire rather than a bigger one. Skinny tires bite the snow and ice better. If it were me, I would be looking for a 215 65 16 Same ride hieght and slightly narrower tread.

Noise coming from front of car

It sounds exactly like a wheel bearing problem.The right side its seems would be the problem. When you turn right it puts more pressure on the bad bearing making it louder. I would suggest replacing both. If on is gone the other one isn't far off. Hope this helps

04 Expedition Front end Noise?

did you recently have new tires or rims put on? because it sounds like your tires are rubbing on your wheel well/mud flaps. if that's the case you'll either need to: downsize the tires/rims, remove the plastic covering the wheel well (not the body panel of course), or you could always get a lift haha :)....hope this helps ya out, good luck!

New tires Suzuki XL-7 (2007)

245/65R17 is a much more popular size however it is generally(tire sizes are not uniform) about 1 to 1.5 inches bigger in diameter & about a half inch wider. This means you will need about an inch more clearance when the front wheels are max turned, left or right. Also allow for suspension bounce. As far as type of tire: first decide on your priorities (ie..max traction, smooth ride) & then the choice will be easy
