Post anyone using 225.55.16's on a legacy GT

Hey folks,

I'm just about ready to spring for the Firestone Firehawk SZ50 EP's for my 97 GT .... and after looking at the tire width/cross section (overall width) and tread width's for the 225.55.16 versus the 205.55.16 ... 8.4 vs 9.2 inches .... and 6.5 vs 7.0 inches for the firestone's SZ50 EP... The overall circumference is 25.8 vs 24.9 ...

Do you think I'd have clearance problems after installing the DMS golds with the 225.55.16's ?

the 225's would provide a larger contact patch ...but probably a bit more float on dirt/gravel

... would be grateful for any feedback
