Currently I have, from initial vehicle purchase, 215/55R16 93H tires, and the rims (per the sticker in the door jamb) are 16x7.0J. I really don't want to change the rims out as well, and just want to get some new tires... The DWS 06 tires are listed as 215/55ZR16, which I thought
were able to be installed on the same rims I have... but the warning is making me nervous. Any advice before I purchase?
They are the same size and should fit no problem.
The optional wheels for your car were 215/50/r17 with the appearence package if i remember correctly.
The warning is probably because the new tires are z rated and your stock continentals arent.
