Anyone know the tire size needed to fit SRT4 rims on a 1gn? The ones mounted on the rims now are 225/45R17. Will they fit on the car without rubbing? I just wanna make sure before I put them on the car as to whether or not I'll need new tires on them....

Thanks, Mike

You're going to have to run a 205/40/17 tire, those tires are too tall and too wide, they'll probably hit your spring perch before they're mounted fully. You might be able to squeeze a 215/40/17, but I'm not too sure.

I know, I just can't believe that someone would put a tire that size on a 6" wheel. Talk about killing the point of putting 225 width tires on a car.
