Then you would have to put Caution wide right turns on your rear bumper, just like the Semis have it.

Cool calculator, thanks. will any modifications be required if switching to 245/55/16'*. They seem to be almost right on for sidewall comparing to 225/60/16.

For those who want wider tires that won't fit on the stock Bonneville 16" rims but don't want a aftermarket rims find a set of 1989-1996 Pontiac Grand Prix crosslace rims. They look identical to the Bonneville crosslace rims, but they are actually 1" wider. The widest Bonneville 16" rims are 7" wide, whereas the Grand Prix crosslace rims are 16X8!!! I will probably pick a set of those up once I get some money saved up to put on the "Ei". Get it!!! If not wait til I get a couple pics.
