    i know.. i was referring to the 195 on an 8in wide rim.. that tire is too small for an 8in wide rim and would look ridiculous

    with an 8" wide rim you'd want to run 205s at the least.. but 215s would be ideal

    Thanks I appreciate it now I know why my vx rims look funny cause they have a 215 on them, I dont think the rim is that wide but they just look a little odd ya know? well I have some 215s and 205s but are for a 14 inch rim not 15
