    my car is lowered about 2 inches.

    I have a set of studded snow tires that just came in on a car at work and they're 205-65-15's


    anyone know if they're going to clear before I mount them on my rims?

    what is the current size of tires you've got on now? do they ever rub? what is the clearance like to the fender with the tires you've got now?

    that reminds me.

    Winter + Audi is gonna be fun. I can see it now.

    Empty roads and "No officer, I gave it too much gas, I had no idea it would put the car sideways through that intersection"

    I need to get some good winter tires, then I can outrun those crown vics...at least in the snow.

    horrible choice. 195/55/15's rubbed on my car near lock..

    with a snow, you want to have clearence in the fender well... otherwise, you're just going to pack your whole wheel well with snow.

    generally, you want to go smaller. on my hatch, i had 185/60/14 snows, and they were awesome
