Need help determining if a set of 03 stock chrome lincoln rims with 225/r50 17 tires will be compatible with my 03 towncar?

I have the opportunity to purchase 225-50r17 tires with Lincoln chrome rims for a great price. What impact will this have on my 03 Town Car?

They would fit the car no problem. Speedo off 6.9%, Sidewall height almost 17% shorter will soak up bumps less.

Hi jonny. As others have mentioned, keep in mind the vehicle will not ride as smoothly with the shorter/lower sidewall ratio tires (225/50 versus 225/60).

Also, the smaller overall diameter tires may look a bit undersized in those big Lincoln Town Car wheel wells.

Let us know how you make out and good luck.
