    Torque Thrust IIs Rubbing?

    Anyone had a problem with this? I just put the 17 x 9 and 17 x 11 wheels on last night. It seems like the the back of the center cap is rubbing against the side of the caliper, right on the little curve. The wheel went on fine so I am guessing it can't be a lot of contact but you can definitely hear it rubbing when you are moving. Not sure if I need spacers or what. Help.

    Caliper wise...they should clear no problem. Which corner are you have a problem with?

    Mine fit without any rubbing anywhere.

    It seems like the drivers side front. When I put them on and spun them around I didn't hear anything. It was when drove it I heard the rubbing.
    Do your center caps line up with the edge of the cap on the disc brake? I noticed that mine were a little larger. I didn't check how the stock wheels fit against it. I won't be able to really look at it until I get out of work.

    I will take a look at mine a bit later.

    Pictures might help to better show the problem.

    Mine rubbed up front when I first got them(17x9.5) It rubbed on the caliper bracket makes a very harsh metal on metal sound. Scared the shit out of me on the way home from the tire shop. I thought I was going to loose a wheel of something, I stoped twice to try and find the problem. Got home and lifted the front spun the front wheels and they were both dragging on the bracket. I ended up doing some grinding on the bracket and that took care of the problem
