2003 Impala LS 3.8

My brother has 4 tires/rims off his camaro tires are 245/50R16
Just wondering if they can be run on my Impala for the summer without any problems. I read on the forum somewhere that if tires are to low it will cause issues with PCM or any other sensors. Also not sure if the added width would rub against anything while driving.

I have stock tires/rims on now 225/60R16

Camaro rims are not the correct bolt pattern. The wheel's offset it most likely too low also, making the wheels stick out. The tires is 1" shorter than stock. I'm not aware that it would cause any problems, shifting and such would be off.
