Question Anyone running 225/50/16's on OE RS wheels w/ lowered suspension?

Just curious for you guys running 225/50/16's and w/ a lowered suspension (ie TEIN/AGX combo or H&R/AGX combo) if you get any rubbing? I'm looking into several tire sizes to use for competition. Either 205/50/16, 215/50/16 or 225/50/16. I know the 205/50/16's will be no probs, but want to maximize the contact patch.

I'm using 225/45/16 with H&R/AGX combo and have no rubbing. There isn't anymore room though. I think 225/50/16 would most likely rub.

thanks for the input guys, these wheels/tires are strictly for competition use only, and won't see the light of day on street (well hopefully not). The tires available in 225/45/16 are quite limited that's why I was taking a look @ the other sizes. 205/50/16 is definately most abudant, next is 225/50/16. Well looks like it's time to find a tire in the 225/45/16!
