Hello, there are several models of Taurus to choose from. I am looking at a GL Sedan.
The original equipment size I show is what you have, 205/65-15.
For rubbing you might consider jacking the front of the car up. Use jack stands, chock the rear wheels, be safe. Turn the steering wheel to one side. While this is giong on look at all of your fender panels. Check for loose, sagging panels. Spin the wheels to see if they are rubbing on anything. Check both sides.
Again, be safe, jacks and stands can slip. Let us know.
