190e tires

I know the my 1989 190e came with 185/65/15 tires. Has anyone used a larger size with good results?

Thats because 45 series are actually shorter in height when compared with 50 series. They rub on the front because you need to put spacers to extend the bumper outward. Then it will stop the rubbing. Otherwise use 205 instead.

I run 225/45-R16 on R129/Evo I wheels (16x8" ET34) without any rubbing, even lowered with Ground Control coilovers.
