Post Will 225/50/16 Yokohama AO32R's fit

I am wondering if the AO32R's will fit on the stock rim and not rub even though my car is lowered 1 3/4" maybe even 2". If not I will get them in the stock size but since my wheels are dismounted and on there way to the shop I would like to wrap them in some super aggressive tread when I get them back.Any help would be appreciative. Thanks

you may get some rubbing on the rear fender in hard corners. you can get the lip of the fender rolled and not have to worry about it though (but rolling fenders puts you in SM or DSP if you worry about autoX classes).

Thumbs down

Why bother with 225? You're not going to get much if any extra performance out of running that size. The A032R comes in 205/55-16 -- avoid the hassle. Admittedly, I'd prefer 205/50, but they don't make that size.

I ordered a set from carparts.com for $430 shipped!

Thumbs up

i run this size with coil overs, and love em. they dont rub (car is lowered) cep when at full lock, but barely then.

I have run the narrower tire, and like these better. just another opinion tho.

My Yoko A008RS2's in 225/50-16 size wouldn't even mount up in back. I'm running 3/16" spacers, which give about 3/32" clearance. I think 1/8" spacers would be fine.

First time out, I rubbed clean through the driver side rear fender lip molding. I took it off after the event, and slightly rolled the fenders inner lip. Hope this helps!
