Here is a picture of my Spark with new 16x7 Dragg wheels with 195/45/16 tires. I wanted to clean the car first but couldn't wait

Did going up to 17" wheels negatively impact your MPG??

Not that I'm aware. I put them on after about 1000 miles on stock. My average MPG is 28 all around town, stop and go. I do know they feel lighter than the stock wheels.

Got tired of the rough ride. After my first unrepairable flat I had my mechanic instal 4 Falken Ziex ZE-912 205/50r/15 on the stock rims. Smoother, better handling & quieter with almost no speed change. Mpg is down a very little bit at higher speeds. Price was cheaper ($85) than the stock tires ($110). Little better traction on fast corners.

Wonder what the largest tires you can put on stock rims without rubbing on anything?

I have been thinking of buying new tires.

Thanks.

I talked to my mechanic about that and he recommended 205/50r/15 as the widest without rubbing or speed change issues. I did that and like the tires as explained in my post above.

In my opinion, the first two looks good.

Hi,

Any interference/rubbing issues with the Mallory 4 17x7 setup? looks awesome! Would like to do the same with the silver rims. Any input is greatly appreciated. - Thanks, Stevd

I like the red stripe. I would have to a see one in body color to decide if it looked good. I was actually thinking of plastidipping my stock wheels black and adding a stripe.
