I run 195/50/15s and they run absolutely no problem - I had them rub for the first time in four years on my way to Madness - I LOVE this combo - and it's completely stock suspension

+1 I'm with jbibb1. When I was running 15"s I was using the same dims for the tyres.
195-15/50R. If you go wider she'll rub. As long as those dimensions are exact to what
we've used, you should have no problems. Of course I would also recommend a wheel
allignment and a speedometer recalibration to ensure you don't get pinched by the fuzz
for doing 3kph over the limit. Well K's are for us Aussies so about 2mph for the U.S.

We don't usually get bothered here in the states for 5mph or less over the speed limit - unless they really want to be difficult

I bought a set of 175 70 14 tires and wheels originally from a 1995 Escort

The center bore was the same, the offset was 44 so close enough to 41...

Had to try them on for fit before purchase as Escort had a couple different set of specs for wheels that year.

seems to be a good deal at 150 for the set as they only had 1000 miles on them according to seller, and they do look good for tread..

Ready for winter.
