Well, since those particular wheels aren't designed for FWD applications, they will stick out... meaning that the proper tire for the car will likely rub, especially if the vehicle is lowered. The "stance" look requires a narrower, lower profile tire and unusually aggressive camber settings to minimize wheel/tire rub. The proper size is P205/50R16... you will likely have to use a P195/45R16.

What would be the right size rim for my car because it is lowered with slight camber and rolled fenders but the rims on it right now are some 16 inch xxrs not sure what kind and I believe they are 205/50 r16. there's no way I could go wider? Like 225/50? Is it a substantial difference
