Not sure if this is the right forum so please move if not.

I'd like to fit 225/50/16 tires on my slightly lowered 244 (1980 GLT - 15mm lowered from factory). Do these tires rub? If yes, where (fender lip, frame)? Can this be solved with spacers?
Oh yeah, wheels are Galaxies.

Well when people use 225/50-15 tires the back part of the fender lip on the rear of the car needs to be modified especially when lowering the car. So, that would lead me to tell you to modify the same area of the wheel arch.
