@ARTBRZ @churchx
Thanks both of you - what's the best way to figure out fitment? I suppose I can measure from center of the hub to the arch of the fender - would that suffice?

I don't think that adjusting height via coils is really an option I'd like to pursue since doing that would require additional expenses for corner balancing and alignment. Besides, I don't use the car to commute. The snow tires are more for peace of mind in the event I get caught in the snow during a weekend trip.

Is there a noticeable difference between 215 and 205? My gut tells me there isn't really but I've never tried them out.

Thanks again!

I would recommend visiting www.frsproject.com/tire_size.php
All you need to figure out is how much you dropped your car. This will show you if it fits.

Also, another option is getting steel wheels that's 16 inch and use an appropriate size tire.
