winter tire size 205 50 17

To those having some doubts in their minds whether a size 205 50 17 tire will fit a lowered focus, the answer is yes. At least as long as you have the proper offset on the wheels. I have a set of EAP rims and rennsport springs and struts (1.4" lower than stock) and recently installed a set of 205 50 17 maxxis winter tires. No rubbing, and ride seems smoother than my summer 215 45 17s and good even at 80 mph (130kph) IMHO ( I guess due to the winters softer compound). I thought I'd share this with the group
