drewz airflow se said:
thats the 9000 size wont they rub
Probable a little - but then again we've seen 225's on a c900 Convert - those rubbed :shock: 205's should be ok tho - no larger The 50 profile is smaller then a 9000 btw - 9000's use a 55-65 (on 15" rims)

i got my aeros from a guy who had 205/50/16's i believe (without looking they may have been 55's) and they rubbed enough to put a nice mark in the inside of the two front tires...but his car was on intrax springs...so it shard to say really

well you have a few options for the C-900 that all SHOULD work with almost no rubbing, or none at all

205 45 16
195 50 16
195 45 16

you can be SURE the last one will fit and not rub, however I am fairly sure there is only 1 or 2 tire manufacturers for that size, and you are probably not going to get the best performance out of that size, you might be better off running a 195 50 16, and if it rubs just a little on VERY large bumps, just deal with it. overall for a C-900 running 16" aeros I think that's probably the best size to run.
