I am considering running a 205/45 size tire on my 16x7.5 rim as the
current 225/40 rubs a bit on the rear fender despite cutting, rolling and
a little pulling.
Is 205 too narrow? Do I risk damaging the rims?

Re: Is 205 too narrow a tire for a 7.5" wheel? (pal)

shouldn't be a problem at all.
That is what I am running in autocross right now, although admittedly the Azenis are a very stiff sidewall.
But no problems encountered at all with this combo for me.

What make tires are you all running and what do you think of the
setup?
