I am in need of some new tires, but don't have a clue on which ones to get. I am going to stick with my stock 16" wheels. What is the biggest tire I can fit without scraping or having to shave my brake calibers? Also, what tire do you suggest I get? Thanks
245/50ZR16 is stock, 255/50ZR16 is as big as you should go with street tires.
And it's "c a l i P e r s"
100% agree with that.
With tires you get what you pay for. No shortcuts with tires. You buy cheap, you get cheap. You will especially notice about halfway through the tread life. I just bought the Goodyear GS-D3 tires for my stock 16" and they are absolutely incredible! Expensive?? Yeah. Worth it? Yeah. They have a $50 rebate going right now too which helps a little anyway.
