I have a set of Yokohama Avid A4 thats I got from the tirerack, sized 225/50/16. It's known as a "Plus 0". When I called tire rack I was informed there should be no issues with the tires. I have SEEN these size tires on the Wolfsburg wheels before. Today the dealer tells me they absolutely cannot be mounted, though the advisor conceded that he has seen it before. I've made an appointment with a tire shop to have them mounted, and since the dealer royally effed my car up, I need to change my tires now.
What, if any, is the issue in going from 205/55/16 to 225/50/16 on a 16 x 6.5 wheel?

I would think that 225 might be a little wide for a 6.5" wide rim. I run them on my 8" wide rims.

The recommended rim width for 225/50/16 Yoko Avid V4 is 6-8" so I really don't know why they gave you the runaround.

I am running that size tire on a 16x7 rim on my GTI, with no problem.
