What size tires can I fit on a really low EG with 16" rims...I think it is lowered about 2" Right now the car has LS Rims with 195/55/15 on the front and 195/65/15 on the rear.... Im thinking about going with 215/55/16 in the back and 215/45/16 in the front.... Let me know

I've never tried to fit 215 tires on a 16" rim. I think there are people who do that, I guess the width of the rim is obviously going to dictate what size tire you can run. I run 205's on my 16's

Why different sizes?

With 16's I'd go with 205/45/16, or 215/45/16 if you can fit them without rubbing

I was thinking about going different sizes because the guy who had the car before me did and it looked nice... Would 215/55/16 fit in the back???

you need 205/45-16 all around. dont put different size tires on the front and rear, your car is not a dragster, it will look stupid.

the 215/55-16's are HUGE. its a 8.8% difference between them and the 205/45-16's, and 2" more in diameter.

the 215/45-16 will fit the rims and look nice, the problem is that they're a lil too wide for a car thats lowered 2" so they'll rub. they should work with a car thats at stock height.
