Default 225/55/17???

Can these be run without any rubbing??

I am looking for some general winter tires and would like to put a little more rubber between the road and my wheels.

PS. I am completely stock with the exception of RA UR Mudflaps.

Cool, sounds like a plan.


225/45/17 General Artics should seal the deal this winter.

^this...you would probably tear something out with a 225/55/17 tire, most likely your fender liner or your cool mud flaps.
