Default 04 Wagon tire sizes...

I want to get some some more (and better) rubber on this car... will the 225/55s clear? I'm using the stock 6.5" rims, and stock suspension. The 225s will give me 809 revs/mile as opposed to the 205s giving 831 revs/mile, but that'll be fine by me.

Thanks.

I have 225/50/16's on my stock rims. Works great, and almost identical revs/mile as the 205/55/16's.

Question Luke, one more question...

I just want to confirm that the 225/50X16 on the stock rims won't be a problem on a wagon.
