Default 225/50R16 tires fit on BE?

To top off a very rough night at work yesterday, I went to my car to find a flat.

Ever since I got rid of my ContiExtremeContacts, Ive been missing them.

Im looking at some 225/50R16s right now. Would those fit under my car?

I personally ran 225/45R17 on an 8" wheel and got minor rubbing. I just wasnt sure with the stock 16x6.5s though.

According to my calculations, the tire will be 6mm out towards the fender compared to my 17x8 setup. So itll probably rub at least my front passenger fender under compression.

We'll find out tomorrow.

Yea Im lowered, thats my issue. With my 225/45 17x8 setup, I had to run max camber in the front (with the stock bolts) and my front passenger side fender rubbed all the freakin time. I couldnt run camber bolts for any more otherwise I'd hit the strut.

Sucks Legacies dont have as much room underneath.
