TireRack huh? Thanks. I really would like to do 14 inches on the front if I can--avoid the whole scraping issue on turns I had with my last Monza.

Wheel diameter has little to do with rubbing...

It's wheel width / offset / tire profile

If you have a 14 x 7 wheel, with a 4" backspace - like many Camaro/Chevy II and Chevelle wheels. They work fine with a 195/65-14 - 869 revs per mile. plenty of rubber on the ground and they clear everything. If you go to a 15inch, a 205-55-15 on a 7" wheel with the same 4" backspace clears - It is also the same height.

Thanks All!

By the way, is my Signature fixed yet? I've been trying a few things with the links.
