I acquired a set of Titans and was wondering if if I could run 50 series tires on them without any rubbing issues (I have a 1998 T5). I know the '96 850R came with a 205/45/17 size tire with these rims. Roads here are in bad shape and I was hoping to run a 50 series tire in either 205/50/17 or 215/50/17 size.<p>Thanx

Re: Titan 215/50/17? (bottleofsmoke)

I personally would run a 215/45/17. I had this size on a set of Comets on my 850 and had no issues with them. They were also very pothole friendly. They suprised me a few times living in the NYC area.<br>I think the 215/50/17's will be a little to (if its a word) baloony, and will probably rub.

I was actually going to buy a set of Keskin KT6 wheels but decided I didn't want to deal with changing the offset every season. I finally received these today:<p><IMG SRC="http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v154/bottleofsmoke/DSCF0042.jpg" BORDER="0"><p><IMG SRC="http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v154/bottleofsmoke/DSCF0041.jpg" BORDER="0"><p><br>Can't wait to put them on the T5 <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/biggrin.gif" BORDER="0"> <br>

Cost me an arm & a leg, but I'm happy. <p><IMG SRC="http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v154/bottleofsmoke/DSCF0060.jpg" BORDER="0"><p><IMG SRC="http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v154/bottleofsmoke/DSCF0065.jpg" BORDER="0"><p><IMG SRC="http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v154/bottleofsmoke/DSCF0064.jpg" BORDER="0">
