Just ordered the SmartMadness 15" Genious Newton in Silver with 15X5 front and 15X6.5 Rear. What is the max tire I can have without rubbing?

I believe that 5.5" is the minimum rim width for 195/50. With that staggered setup, I'd agree with 195/50 rear and 175/55 front. Personally, I run 15x6 rims front and rear with 185/55s at the moment (195/50 previously).
Yes. I ran 195/50 on a 15x6 rim for over 50K miles front and rear with no problems even in spirited driving. And, many others have done the same thing with good results.So the question I really need answered is can I put 195/50/15 on a 5.5 inch rim on the front. 2009 Pure.
It's going to be turning while hitting something or something that causes the car to move on its suspension that's going to show any rubbing. Something like turning into a parking lot while hitting a bump in the transition from road to parking lot. I can get my 185/55s to barely rub on the inside fender liner in at least one oddball tight turn situation as the car makes an off camber transition from a road to a driveway.I've got Falken Zeix 185-60 15's all around on DeCorsa IQs (15x6) .... Just got em' but no rubbing as of yet. It's really close in the front well, but lock-to-lock U-turns didn't rub anywhere.
