tire sizes

right now i have 225/50r16 in the front on a 7" rim
I tried the 245/50r16 (on an 8" rim) from the rear and they fit

so my question is if i put 245/50 on th 7" wide rim in the front will they be taller, wider, or more bubbled out side wall than the 245s on an 8" rim?
thank

Smile Re: tire sizes

It will bulge some and grow slightly. NOT much b/c of it's construction. Not like the old narrow bias ply tires of old, they would grow quite a bit.

Please go over to The Tire Rack and see what width wheels are recommended.
