1979 RX-7 stock suspension with new KYB struts and shocks, 112k on car. Will 205/50-15's fit all the way around or do I need 195/50-15's in front. Have heard different opinions that they will fit and won't fit with out modification.

I know the 15's look good but the reduced weight and rotational inertia of at 13" wheel can be a significant on acceleration.
