will they fit a GTS?

also, will 5th gen GT rims fit on these with 205's or 195's?

are the gts wheels a 16x6.5 or 16x7?

use this to determine if that tire size would be correct as well cause a 225/50/16 seems a lil tall , 225/45/16 seems better but i dunno the stock tire size. maybe even a 215/45/16

as for rim fitment check the offsets that should give u a pretty good idea if they will work or not

opps forgot to link this

i used that calculator and basicly u need a 225/45/16


i dunno what the size tires were on the 5th gen 15s, i think the 14s were a 185/65/14, my 6th gen 15x7 had a 205/55/15 but thats the gt, the st had a 205/50/16, but the previous size was optional.

okay, so how about an answer then,

would the 5th gen GT rims (15's) or even the alltrac rims fit a 7th gen GTS with small tires for the winter?


also, will the 225/50/16 clear? they have only 10mm higher total sidewall, so it's only 2.5mm taller at the spring perch over stock, so I don't see why they wouldn't work.

i cant tell you on that, never tried the 5th gen rims. i know that the gts can take a 42+ offset though.

i have heard of people putting then on a 7th gen wheel but its gonna be a squeeze since a 205 is flush on 6.5" wheel
