Will the standard tires fit on the LSS wheels? I want the LSS wheels but on the fence on the tires. Want something better in the wet, and something with better longevity. Once the A048's wear out after what, 8000-10,000 miles? can I install the standard tires or are the front LSS rims too wide?

thanks - I looked it up and saw the tires were 20mm wider but didn't know how much wider the wheels were. Probably tough (and not such a good idea) to squeeze 20mm wider tires on a 5.5 inch wheel...
