Default Last Call On Tires!!!

I have Eagle Alloys, 16x8.. I can't decide if i should get 245/50/16 or 255/50/16. If I get 255'*, how much work will I have to do to make them fit? How much rubbing will I get? Will 245'* have no problem with rubbing?

AAHHHH, can't decide!

The extra 10 mil should not interfere with the side walls, I went 20 mil wider and have no rubbing issues at all. You will knock your speedo out wack a bit as the profile is the same 50 (50%) but not too much 1 or 2 mph.

might as well go 245/50/16 because they have been ran before without any modifications......and 245 is plenty wide in my opinion

Got my Summer rims on my car, and mounted them in 255/50/16'*. I have no rubbing anywhere, and I didn't do any mods! The car corners like a beotch now, and its rides quieter and smoother.

Will have picsup when it is light outside (and not raining)
