Can 215/50/R17 fit on Gen1 with no rubbing? Doing some research on new tires and I've tried searching the forums but no posts come up. Can 215/50/R17s non-runflats run on a 1st Gen with no rubbing? Has anyone tried this tire setup? This would be for a stock Mini Cooper S. Atlanta roads are full of pot holes and would like more sidewall to cut down on the bone jarring daily commute and have a steep angle driveway that I scrape the front lip on when pulling out. Was thinking this 3.7% increase in diameter or 11.0% increase in sidewall would help both issues, but haven't read anyone running this size. I'm currently running typical 215/45/R17 non-runflats but due for new shoes. Any input would be appreciated.
