My NT05s and NT05Rs both rub on the plastic liner on the passenger rear slightly, but not the control arm. There is about 1/8-1/4" clearance between the tire and sway bar link on mine.

there is an aftermarket bwoody sway bar you can get. i think you can also get smaller bolts as well.

Only my passenger rear nt05 rubs the plastic part, clear of everything else though.

This tire in particular is known for doing this as they are wider then any other 315 tire out there.... I would change out the sway bar link bolt on that passenger rear side to a low profile one and see if it gives you more clearance. PM Mario aka QBNKID he has the same tires....

Check out the thread below and look at the link in post #8....
