Default Celica with Scion tc Wheels

I have a 2004 Celica GT Tsunami Edition and I just put on some 17" tc wheels. I bought the wheels from a guy on craigslist who had them on a Matrix. Anyway, the tires are 215/50R17's and when I turn the wheel all the way, the tires rub. The tires are completely shot so I need to get new tires. I was wondering if I got 215/45R17's would they rub? Has anyone put 215/45R17s with 17" Scion tc wheels on a Celica? Thanks for the help.

I have larger wheels with no rubbing. Turn your wheels all the way and see where it rubs. Its probably your wheel plastic on the front. They pop out a little sometimes.

I honk at other Celicas on the road.

It rubs the inside of the wheel well. For example, when I turn all the way to the left, the right wheel rubs on the front side of the inside of the wheel well. The plastic in the wheel well is all attached correctly.
