Default Tires???

What size tires have you guys fit under your bonne'*. I would like to fit a set of 255/50/16 under there but I dont know if they will rub or not? Does anybody have any recommendations on what size I should go for when I replace them. Its on a set of factory rims. I believe that the rims are 7" wide but correct me if I am wrong. I know on my buick I fit a set of 255/50/15 on 7" wide rims and they fit just perfect.

Whats your thoughts,

Cheers, Erik

IIRC you should be fine between 225-245, I think from what I have heard 255 will rub a bit on the 92-99 bonnies

235x55 R17 on 17x7.5 wheels look really nice, and fit good also

245 is the max you can go on the stock wheels without modification of the wheel wells
