You can't discuss the effects of different tire widths (and as obliquely noted above the same nominal width, e.g. 225, doesn't reflect the actual variations between brands and models of tires) w/o also specifying the wheel offset.

The stock wheels, at least for '02, were ET55; if you go to ET48 you've lost 7mm (~0.3") of clearance on the outside of the tire. And that's easily enough to affect the fit when you're pushing the limits...or comparing different brands of the "same size" tire.
