I can say there is no way a 225/50 would work well on my car without limiting more bump travel than I currnetly have. I have Tire to metal rub marks directly obove the tires on both front and rear wheel wells with the 225/45's after a track day. going to 50's would mean putting in plastic washers around my shock shafts to limit some bump travel.
