Check the list archives and you'll find a good many posts about using
this size. The results are "mixed" insofar as there is potentially a
slight rubbing at the rears--which caused if there is a "wrinkle" or
bulge in the lower edge of the plastic fender liner (at about 10-11
o'clock on the driver's side). This wrinkle is a common defect on the
'91 200q. If it is present--it tends to contact a 225/60x15 tire
during a hard bump--it is easy to flatten out by application of heat
(hair-drier, etc).
