Been reading through some threads here, but can't get a solid answer on this one. I am in the process of shopping out a new set of snow tires and I want to see if anyone is running this set up on their car.

I have a set of 16" OEM wheels and my car is dropped about 1.5" on Apex springs. My last set of tires were 205/50 r16's...never got rubbing. But I have the option to buy a barely used set of 205/55 r16's for a damn good price, but I want to make sure they won't rub (they are studed Hankooks)

Anyone have first hand exp with this?

I too run 205/55-16 (Winterforce) on stock wheels with the Eibach Pro System and have no rubbing. The key that makes this work well is the stock wheels and stock offset.

Thanks guys. Yeah, the more I read the more I realize how much the offset really makes this happen.
