Looking for some second "educated" thoughts here on tire sizes. Im looking to get some winter tires on my 17" stock wheels and would like to size up a bit. The stock tires on '12 impreza sport premium are 205/50R17. I want to get a hint more height for the winter so I was thinking upwards of 215/55R17 or 215/60R17. I hit a lot of snow in the winter so even an inch or two extra clearance would make a world of difference.
I am aware there are wheel/tire threads and I looked through many. looked online at many posts and wheel comparisons. I also used this site to kinda help see the differences ( http://www.rimsntires.com/specs.jsp
) but it isnt telling me what I need to know.
Anyone have experience with diff tire sizes on same wheels?
I need to know if the tires will rub the wheel-well when i turn, corner, car is loaded with 5 passengers, just normal use i guess..any input is appreciated!
