What are best size of tires
« on: May 15 2020, 09:18:48 PM »
Looking for new tires.  Want an aggressive look and stance on the car but feel the OE size of 215 65R 15ís are too skinny and small.  Suggestions welcome.

If you go with 275 50 15 they are almost the same diameter as the 215 65 15.

Will 275-50 or 255-60 fit without bags or rolling the lip?

235/60X15 on the front rubs lower back went back to 215/65 I was not going to chance the 225/60 X15 . 255/60X15 no problem. I ran a28X9x15 Hoosier on a 8 in wheel 4 in backspace slight rub inside wheel well .the tire section with was 11.1 ,I could get finger weight between,but I think on the leave the tire got a little wider. My new MT BPRO section width is 10.7 miss by a mile.
