I have 205/50/17's stock that I use for winter wheels. I'm interesting in purchasing a set of 16" Blizzaks mounted on steelies to replace them.

What size do I need?

Will 205/55/16 maintain the correct ratio? Will it clear the caliper?

Thanks!

Yes, that is the "correct" 16" tire size.

Yes, the steelie should clear the caliper (my reference is that I run a 16" alloy on what you would call an s-model). Your tire dealer should be happy to do a testfit "just in case".
