How do you guys run tires wider than 225? A few months ago I stepped up to 225/50-16 tires and I have noticed that when I hit a good sized dip, especially at interstate speed, the rear tire rub lightly on the fenders. It has not caused any serious damage but there are some light grooves in the side of the tread. I do have aftermarket wheels but I don't think the offset is different from stock. I checked the clearance to the front strut before I bought the tires to make sure I had enough clearance for the wider tires and there was not a lot of room but enough to fit 225s. If the offset moved the tire inward I would probably have a clearance issue with the strut.
