hmm really? right now i have 215 in front, and 225 in back, but i was thinking of making both of them 225. Would 02+ not rub? since 01s were a bit lower?I have 225's on 17's on my 01, i like how it handles better. its louder on the road but that not really what im worried about. i have stock suspension and sometimes in revirse if i cut the wheel all the way the rub ever so slightly not a big deal at all. i would go for it.
what gap is the one you talk about??I think you'll be happy with 225/45 all around. The difference will be minimal but you should benefit slightly in handling, softer ride and filling the gap. I entertained this swap when I was nearing the need for new rubber. However, I came across a set of IS350 wheels in near new condition and went with those instead. Cost me less $$$ too. Good luck with your purchase.
