Im thinking of putting on some 225/50r15 and was wondering if any one has ran these on the rear?

how wide are your wheels?  I run 225/50R16's on my 7.5" wide wheels.

ssmokeyy i believe the stock se wheels are 15x6 like the turbo so technically they would fit on the rims i do believe they would be to wide if you are aggressively driving it.  unless im wrong on the size but i think they would fit better on a 15x7 to 7.5 like silverton.

I have factory (15x6) up front and some old ford turbines (15x6.5) on the rear and run 195/60R15 on both.

I feel like 225's on the factory wheels would be too much.

Obviously, you have yet to meet Colonel Gustard.
I saw some of his posts, he seems like more fun than a barrel of hookers.

I had 225/50's on my factory wheels for years.  Never had an issue with it.

Check out this link. I have had 4 sets of wheels on my car with the wheels info and pics. Also includes information of Gustard's setup as well with pics.

225/50 16 works prefect on this car.  Looks good also.
