    Alright guys, I'm about to get myself a set of slipstreams and everyone is telling me that 15's are going to have big tires and I should just stick with oem wheels but I've seen plenty of 15 slipstreams with smaller tires so my question is... I found a set of slipstreams that are 15x6.5 with a 40mm offset with a 1" lip. Could I fit a lower profile tire on them?(like 205/50r15) Thanks guys.

    you should get 205/50s on those wheels. it will look nice and still has enough meat to absorb some bumps. i had a set of slips with the same specs on my integra with 195/55s and it looked good too, but i would have rather had 205/50s.
