Default 235/45/17 with 1.5 finger gap in rear. rub?

I'm debating whether or not to go up one size of my tires, I'm currently running 225/45/17 with about 1 1/2 finger gap in the rear of the car, will at 235/45/17 tire rub? Do i need to roll my fenders?

Don't think those will fit on your Civic, no.

are you looking to lengthen your FD? I'd go with 235/40/17 to keep the rolling diamter at or less than stock. Plus you should have enough clearance then. From what i've been able to find 235/40 will wit without rubbing unless your very low. (looking to go wide myself, possibly 245)

Maybe you had a 99 RS or a 2005 Impreza Wagon. Don't be a dick.
