My Sprite has square rear wheel arches.   Also, the front the tires come
right to the edge of the fender well.  In other words if the wheel is at
full bump the tire could potentially rub the fender lip.  I have had this
happen with a different set of tires with a larger diameter than the
Yokohama 175s and stock springs.  The result was the lip lost a little
paint, no other damage.  If it is a concern you may want to check the
height of you bump stops before taking the plunge with bigger tires.
