Has anyone put 225/50 16's on their GC8's?
I was planning on going with Falken Azenis at 215/45 16's but I'm wanting to go with a wider and taller tire
Thanks

A couple guys have done it, but they've all experienced rubbing on either the struts or fenders or both. You will have to do some fender rolling and/or use spacers to make them fit.

I have 225/50/16's right now, and yes it required alot of fender tweaking (still have to do more, but its actually the fronts causing more of a problem now than the rear)

Are you talking stock wheels or not? If its stock wheels, stick with the 215's, the 225's on stock wheels can hit the strut (my Rota Slipstreams have a +48 offset, which gives it plenty of strut clearance)

Mine are hitting the strut under hard cornering (rear only)....

I have 3mm spacers that I will try out this weekend at the track... We'll see if it now rubs on the fender or still on the strut.

I would have but I couldnt find any in the tires I wanted... And I didnt go for the Falken Azenis 215/45/16 cause I wanted a more daily-driverable tire.
