Anyone know if 205/60-14 will rub with a 1 inch suspension drop in my GTS?

They'll rub even without a drop... 195/60-14s should be the highest 60 series tire you can use... if you can find 205/55-14 or 205/50-14s would be better, but they're way more expensive. :yikes:

I think they'd probably be fine.

they're only a tad taller than my 205-50-15s and I have a 1.7ish inch drop. with the 205s though you'll want to make sure you have the right offset. you might need to get some spacers so they don't rub against the strut. Also, make sure you wheels are wide enough for 205s.

Hmmm, I guess a test fit will be in order once I get the tires off my stang. Mostly wondering about strut clearance on the GTS stock rims with these.

stock is like +38 or +40 or something, so it will probably rub against the strut...

I have +35s and my rears rubbed on the strut... I ended up getting a spacer for just the rear and now it's fine, it evened out the wheel stagger too :p:

I think if you get spacers you'll be fine....
