Default Will 245/50/R16 work on stock rims

I have a chance to pick up a new set of tires for half cost and was wondering if they will work on my stock crosslaces and if anyone is running this size

Go 55'* if you can. Much closer to stock diameter than 50'*.

well, don't have a choice on the size. When I looked them up they are going to be about .5" shorter than stock.

Keep in mind I'm not aware of a rub, but I suspect I'm rubbing the plastic inner fender liner at full-lock. I can check at lunch and let you know.

The rears don't rub at full lock at all.

I was able to fit p255/50/r16 GT+4 from goodyear on my OEM rims. I had to pound back the welded lip in the rear wells so it wouldn't puncture the tires during suspension compression. the fronts. as Willwren mentioned, will rub the plastic inner tire gaurd, but is of no real concern.
