    yeah, +25 is pretty agressive. If you're going for the 'stance' or hellafrush look, those would work

    Nah not really, I just like that they're 16lbs and 15inch rims. I like the style of them. I like that they're 8 inch too, my thought was that I could potentially get more traction for autocrossing. Preferably I would get a non stretched tire because that's just not my style.

    You'd want at least a 225 on an 8" rim. thats what my fronts are on the genny and they are pretty much 'stright' on the wheels. and i doubt a 225 would clear on a +25 unless you're in 4x4 mode or have -15 degrees of camber

    yeah im thinking you may have to go with 205s if you are very low at all.

    Well that's not going to work then. Lame, they're not badly priced.

    I'd like to fit the biggest tire possible without sacrificing ride height or rubbing during cornering. That's just to ghetto for my style.

    IMO, 15x7, +42 with a 205/50 on it is perfect.

    wider doesn't mean faster. and if you don't have the power, it can actually make you slower due to speed scrub on the slip angle.

    These were 16's, but x7 and +42 with 205's on 'em to give you an idea.
    no camber kit. just dropped straight on cheap coilovers

    Running too wide of a tire sucks. Its harder to turn. The 205s are a great size. I had 205 I think they were 55 r15 on my crx and civics.
