A Question.

I currently have a set of 18"x8 TSW Mondello rims that are being tested on an Acura RL with Kumho Ecsta Supra 712 225/40Z/R18 tires.

Initial stress tests show the right side suspensions are gone, front more than rear, but both couldn't even handle a 90lb passenger (our more extreme test had a 200+lb passenger in front and 170lb passenger in back on same side). Driver side seemed fine, even under quick right-turn scenarios. All spirited left turns return with grind, grind, grind so we are replacing right struts.

Based on these wheel specs, are there any concerns we need to be worried about? Such as rubbing or fender rolling?

Thank you in advance.

Edit: I should note the Acura RL is the first generation KA9.
