I'm trying to run 225/50/15 on my 15x6.5 36 offset rims on my Sedan S. Would I have any fit ment or rubbing issues?

Those are 24" in diameter - a full 1" smaller than the stock 195/65/15s. Are you OK with that? I think they are going to look funny.

The width seems OK for a 6.5" wheel. I am assuming that they are aftermarket wheels because the offset is more aggressive (36 .vs. 50+)

I think the combination of width + offset will make the tires stick out quite a bit and potentially rub against the fenders.

Why not go with 205/65/15s (slightly larger) or 215/60/15s (same width & diameter as the stock 16s/17s)

Yeah I may go with 215's. My main concern is the rubbing for sure though. Yeah I wasn't sure how much smaller the actual tires would be if I went with that size.
