    well you don't have much choice when it comes from width.... 7 inches is 7 inches..... With 15s if you go with too low profile of a tire it will look incredibly stupid unless your car is lowered quite a bit. I might consider sticking with the 205/50/15s and going with a moderate drop (until zero wheelgap)


    Yes this post is based on looks, mostly.



    Just make sure you buy GOOD tires.

    stick with a 205 on a x7 width rim. anything wider will result in more tire flex.

    thats not very hard to beat. Khumoes suck ass.

    Azenis, so-3's, p-zero asymitrico are probably the 3 best tires for daily/sport driving

    :withstupid:
    there is nothing "upgrade" about heavier rims and tires
    if you want to be slower but "look better" (personally i dont think it does" then go for it ... but its a waste
