are you talking about the rears or the fronts? and what sizes are the tires? if you dont know how to tell the size it will be like 315/35/R17 or something like that.

well since he rubs when he turns im guessing its the fronts..... buy new tires for the fronts (245/45's) you shouldnt have rubbing in the rears unless their ridiculously too big, is your car lowered?

275 in front should not rub I believe. And I'd like to know what 'pipe' he's rubbing. Crack pipe maybe?

I wouldn't think turning would have anything to do with the back tires rubbing the pipe???

I have 275/40/17 in the front 315/35/17 in the back and no rubbing issues at all, and that's with a 2 inch drop front / 1 1/2 inch in the back. When you say they rub a pipe what are you talking about?
