yeah i know they are right down the street from my.. plus I get a flat from my area atleast twice a summer... When ever there is construction on a house or someone getting there roof done.... these construction people leave nails or screws around. hence I get a flat... even if I am really careful

^^^ there right you know. I wouldnt go sears, take your 149$ a wheel and buy a solid pair of rims at a rims and tire store, even if its online. Leave the crappy tools for sears and buy from people who know what they are doing.

You wood be surprised what kind of rim you can buy for 149$

To answer your question: wheel size is not the most important thing when finding a setup that doesnt rub, wheel offset is. Sears is not giving the offset so i cant tell you if it will rub or not. tire size is good for the rim 215 is a little streched for 7.5" wide but still within spec. If you find out that your offset is bigger then 45 then i would suggest putting some 225 / 40 / 18.

Good luck, search a bit, you will find what you need
