Hey guys, i was looking do grab up some 16's, probably those sparco's since they seem to look SO good on a blue ST i've seen around this forum :). I was wondering if 225/50/16's would clear? I was going to toss a set of Hankook RS3's on them, but they only go to 225/50/16's. I know the clearance difference is around 5/8's of an inch taller then the stock 205/45/17's, but that added with the 3/4's of an inch wider tire i was wonding if you guys think it would rub. how close of a fit are the 225/45/16's? do you guys think there would be room to squeeze those in without rubbing on hard cornering?

This might throw a wrench in your plans but the stock tire size is 205/40/17. 225/50/16 is way too big of a diameter change from stock.

The 225/50R16 rivals rub. Can't say about the kooks, but I would expect problems. Not important how I know :(

Call TireRack, since not all closeout tire sizes are available on the website. They have just two sets of 225/45-16 D-ZII's left in Louisiana. They're on closeout, so they can ship them to you loose, or you can buy a set of wheels that are not on closeout and they'll shift them to where the tires are and mount them up for you.

I just ordered four 225/45-16's mounted on MSW Type 25 matte grey. 18.45 lbs / wheel, which is a little heavier than the Sparco's, but again, my driving ability is really the limiting factor here. Plus all the extra weight I'm personally hauling around...
