Thinking about going darkside, looking at different tires and sizes.

HydroEdge 41008 P205/55R16
Rim fit: 5.5"-7.5"
Section Width: 8.4" on 6.5" rim
Overall diameter: 24.8
Rev per mile: 839

My concern is the width, will it fit? Looking for opinions:confused:

I didn't see it on Murgies list. There have been some issues with rubbing on some model years with a 205.

:agree:with Rocket, check the list Murgie has up for tire sizes. Most popular are 195/55/16 on runflats and 195/60/16 on none runflats if you can find the 60's, but the 60's correct the speedo closer to accurate. Your tires will most allways be cheaper on line. Murgie also has a list for dealers for that.

Just curious. Are you saying that for non run-flat users the most popular size being used is the 195/60-16? TIA.

Sorry I made a mistake on that.:eek:4: Its a 195/55/16 seems to be the most popular non runflat. But the 60 corrects the speedo closer to accurate.

I've been thinking about a 60 series. I'd really like to try the 205/60 to get some additional clearance but don't want to chance a rubbing issue...DRATS.
