RE: 16" Wheels

How about 225/50-15 on 7" Fuchs? Anyone used this combination? Are there
clearance problems with the rear fender lip like with the 225/50-16?
I would think the shorter tire would help accleration too.

i have the 16x7 A4/A8 wheels on my '86 5kT. any wider than that, you might 
have problems, IMO.   what brand are the wheels you're using?
