Has anyone been able to run 205 45 R16's on their stock 500 sport wheels (i think 16"s) or other similar size fiat wheels without any rubbing issues?

btw it's lowered almost 2 inches on Eibach sportline lowering springs to be more specific

here it is sitting on two stock tires (195 45 R16) and 1 used tire same size different brand and a 2nd used tired (195 50 R16 in the rear pass. side)

If you're wondering why my tires are all miss match I have a few potholes to thank for that :/

oh also two of them have a small bubble... so yea I really need new tires. I was planning on buying some in the same size but someone just gave me a free set of tires with good tread life (205 45 R16) and I would like to find out if they'll fit.

I'm sure they'll fit on the wheel fine but I'm mostly worried about rubbing when turning and in the rear. I might have to run spacers...?

Thanks!

You should be fine with no rubbing issues. I have 17X7.5 ET30 with 205/40r17 lowered 2.5" and mine drives fine.

UPDATE: the tires i wanted to put on before turned out to be in terrible condition. lots of cracking. so i picked up some other used tires in better condition and now i have a pair of 205 50 R16 in the back and 195 50 R16 in the front.

The 205s fit just fine in the back and they fill out the wheel well a lot nicer.
