No problem, since the 323 sport also comes with 225/50 on 7 inch wide rims. The grip may be improved a little bit, and a 225 fills the wheelwell up pretty nicely for appearance sake.
One consideration: depending on where you live, a summer compound 225 will not give optimal grip in the winter. Something to think about before changing over. If you live in the south, who cares?
: I currently have a new 323. It is only 2 weeks old. I got the premium package which came with the Michelin Energy 205/55/HR 16 Tires. I am considering changing the 16 inch Michelin Tires with the Michelin Pilots 225/50/ZR 16's.
: I am hoping that this would take out some of the body role when going driving hard into a corner. Does anyone have any comments or suggestion on my decision.
