225/50r18?

So I recently bought a set of SS/TC wheels for the Saab (Epsilon platform). The guy I bought them from threw in some new 225/50R18 tires but I'm not sure if they'll rub, considering im on H&R Springs. The Saab forum didnt help me much but from what I see here, a lot of G6s and Malibus are running 18s with 225/50R18s. Thoughts?

Im running 225 35 20 so idk from experience. But I believe you'll be just fine. If they do end up rubbing then just sell them and get new ones.

I have Eibach's as well. You can only get the pro-kit for our cars.
I believe it's. 1.5 front and 1.75 rear. Hears a side shot with the 225/50's
