    Need to know the back space--- look at the threads with 15x7 dart /cuda wheels -- it will give you some ideas.
    How big of a tire are you trying to stuff? Lawrence

    I think those would be too big for the front. Maybe others will chime that have tried it with the results.

    Rotate them?How many miles do you drive the car per year?I only ask because I can,t rotate my 215,245 tires and it,s been 3 years LOL.You might beable to go 215 all around,but would look small on the rear.If alignment is true,I doubt you,ll have much wear with minimal driving.JMO:D

    Hmmmm. Sounds like you need to buy 6 tires... so you will have a spare set for when the back ones have left too much of their life on the pavement.
