Tom,
I doubt that a worn front end would cause this. A P225 60R 15 is a fairly large tire, but many people have them on there cars. Are you using a stock Ford rim on your car? If not the offset of the wheel could be the problem.

The other factor is how high does you car sit on a level surface. If your car is lowered, you will have more chance of tire rubbing.

The below two links to our site are chock full of information. Look them over
