Default Fist gen Legacy C/WRX 16's

Put Some 2003 WRX Rims and Tires-205/55/R16's on my First gen legacy and the Rear Wheel is Rubbing the Lower Spring Perch. I like the meaty tire and extra height but am not sure how to correct this. I'd rather not have to buy new tires. these are practically new. The fronts fit fantastic.

You could try some wheel spacers to push the wheel out a bit, but other than that there's not much you can do besides changing tires or get some different struts.

I have 205/55/R16s on WRX rims on my first gen Legacy but I swapped out the stock struts for KYG GR2s. The tires barely clear.
