Default 225/50/16 tires with Progress springs

Does anyone have Progress springs with 225/50/16 tires on the stock wheels?

I have the Progress springs with KYB AGXs and I need new tires. I have been thinking of going with a slightly wider tire and am just wondering if anyone has this setup.

From what I have read, I should not have any rubbing issues.

What are you opinions on this?

Hella old thread but, its better to bring back a dead one then make a new one. Did you go 225/50/16? Did it cover that gap? I noticed at some of the automaker car shows, they have the stock 16 wheels but with these beefy tires and it looks great.

Is 225/50/16 the solution? Reason i ask, is because i am in the same situation.

The overall diameter is the same, its not going to cover any gap...

Looks better form the rear with the wider foot-print...but thats about it...
