I'm driving my Yellow (65) been painted now about 3 months front end starts shaking get back home & find out front driver side tire has a knot on it. I have after market rim with 185 -70-14 I get 195-70-14 put on them. I go out for a ride get back home backing into my driveway I hear something tire hit fender Just my luck I'm going to put some miles on them Just maybe they will wear before I change them

You can gain just a bit of clearance by spacing out the lower fender support rod. It might be enough to fix it.
