Default dont grind

don't grind the wheel you may throw it off balance or weaken its integrity
some have ground the caliber or you could use a small spacer say 5mm in front.
nice color are those drag's wheels haven't heard of them before.

I just went with a 205/50/16 on my 16x8 rims..no problems in the front, but on the rear I had to do a little mod to the trailing arm..just a bit of trimming or if I had some 5 or 10 mm shims everything would would have been fine.

215/45/16 -- 1/2% faster (smaller dia) closest to stock
205/45/16-- 2 1/2% faster """ '''''
if you go bigger than stock diameter 205/50/16 your speedo will be off even more than it is from dealer @3mph a faster tire (smaller dia) will help correct this and give more clearance when lowered this calculator is pretty helpful.

Stick with 205/50/16's and you will be fine. Have fun at NOPI. I did it 3 years ago with my toaster and had a blast. Looking forward to doing it again next year.

Sorry but 205/60/16s will not fit. They are 2 inches taller than OE size and will rub in many places. Not to mention it will throw off your speedo and change your final gearing. 205/50/16 is less than 1/2 inch taller and will work fine.
