..225 tyres will only fit if your wheels have an et of 30 or less. i'm pretty sure they won't work on a standard tspark.. they'll rub the rear struts and trailing arms..

Unless you have wide alloys then you will not gain much by fitting 225/50 tyres except filling the arches type look.

I had 225/50 on my 6.5" wheels on the back of my 156 - I couldn't find any 205/55 and needed something as I had a wrecked tyre and got some good quality 225/50 for a good price.

The tread is about 10mm wider each side so you will need to have this much clearance before you can fit them.
