Would there be a rubbing problem if I ran a 205/55/16 as apposed to a 205/50/16 size tire on my stock rims? I use them for autocross and the nearest size to stock is 55, instead of 50. It is not a problem with rules, its just that these tires are in my price range and their pretty good tires, they were recommended to me. Thanks.[driving]

I believe if your suspension is stock that you should have no problems..........Anybody want to reply?..............

Peace......

if you have a stock suspension, or a very mild drop (ie, eibach prokit), then you should be fine running a 55/16 tire size. but if your'e sitting 2 inches lower than stock, i'd stick with a 50/16 tire, just something better than stock, with a firmer sidewall.

thank you, the 55/16 tires are just for auto-x, so the speedo wont matter. Thanks again
