    Thanks. Wish they were lighter... Though the "heavy feel" gives the steering wheel a better feel.

    I did NOT notice any rubbing when I drove to work.

    I went to lunch with 2 other people and RUBBED the rear mostly during humps/bumps/turns. However, I can't quite tell where it's rubbing.

    According to the link below, when I compare stock 165-65-14 size to 195-50-15, the difference at 70mph is .7244

    http://www.roadkillcustoms.com/hot-r...#axzz2sTzd8p3W

    I think it's safe to say that 195-50-15 will give us the closest-to-stock mileage reading.

    My 205-55-15 is currently showing 74.469 while actually only doing 70mph.

    W/c sucks because these 205's still have a few miles on them. AND 195-50-15's are more expensive than 195-55-15s.

    Picked up another set of wheels: MB 14x6 +30 w/ 185-60-14s. NO RUBBING so far, even with ~ 600lb passenger load.

    As much as I like the look of 195s, I'm afraid that I may start rubbing on the fenders because the wheels are poking out too much. I still believe +40 with 195s are the better specs that would look good.

    Thanks guys. I'm just a "brand name" kind of guy and don't seem to want to get rid of the enkeis.
