just to add a little, I went to a
larger tire once and it did rub when
the turn was fully extended. Believe it or
not the tire was recommended for the car and the rim size.
Otherwise the tires handled well. It's a tough
call because sometime the tires can rub. When the tires
are being mounted you should be able to figure out if they will
be a good fit. Turn the steering wheel to the extreme from one
direction to the next, when its up on the hoist.
(mount the front two) You can tell if it rubs. Going up one size
is no problem but check carefully when you go up two. Also
ask if it will effect the warranty.
